Change Your Emotions; GreatMiddleWay

To manifest any given emotional state, we develop a pattern:

We focus our attention on a specific feeling (pleasant or unpleasant) and magnify it

We generate a supporting discursive thought process and identify with it

We assume a compatible breath pattern and physical posture

If you want to change your emotional state, change your focus, your self-talk, your breath, and your posture.

What you do not.

PICT0126.JPG

Instead of what you need; what about what you do not?

In a world of depressive materialism; poverty and pollution

I dont intent to tread on trend; pretenders I severed an end

Theres a fine line drawn in the sand; trampled

Without mindful intent; a spiritual glance

What is the zen and the trance; compassion enhanced

And when does my third eye open; to notice what controls my emotions

Carefully ponder; what I do and what I do not need

Eat, sleep and breathe

Clothing and shelter and ease

Calming peace and honourable deeds

No harm. No foul.

What I do. And what I do not need.

Eaze your mind w Simple Meditation Tequnique; – Gazing Meditation

zen.jpg

Known as trataka in Hinduism, this method of meditation involves starting at a single point. This point can be anything, such as your favorite painting, a tree in the distance or the moon at night.

Like most other styles of meditation, gazing meditation will help you calm the restless mind. If you have stress or anxiety, take a few minutes to practice gazing meditation.

This style of meditation is especially soothing when you’re in the wilderness and gaze at something beautiful, such as a river, a beautiful tree or the sunset…

Sublime Abiding ; Sutra via GreatMiddleWay

Let me be able and upright,

straightforward and gentle in speech,

humble and not conceited,

contented and easily satisfied,

unburdened with duties and frugal in my ways.

Peaceful and calm and wise and skillful,

not proud or demanding in nature,

let me not do the slightest thing

that the wise would later reprove.

In gladness and in safety,

may all beings be at ease.

Whatever living beings there may be

—whether they are weak or strong, omitting none,

the great or the mighty, medium, short or small,

the seen and the unseen,

those living near and far away,

those born and to-be-born—

may all beings be at ease!

Let me not deceive another,

or despise any being in any state.

Let me not through anger or ill-will

wish harm upon another.

Even as a mother protects with her life

her child, her only child,

so with a boundless heart

will I cherish all living beings.

I will radiate kindness over the entire world

—spreading upwards to the skies,

and downwards to the depths,

outwards and unbounded—

freed from hatred and ill-will.

Whether standing or walking,

seated or lying down,

free from weariness,

I will sustain this recollection.

This is the sublime abiding.

—Buddha Shakyamuni, Maitri Sutra
