Mindfulness in-daily-life

  1. 1. Path of Mindfulness in Daily life LIVING MEDITATION REFLECTIONS ON MEDITATION CREATIVE LIVING
  2. 2. Living Meditation SILENT MIND + OPEN HEART
  3. 3. Meditation for householders Meditation means cultivating the mind to achieve insight wisdom and ultimately- liberation_to sense an openness of heart and a clear seeing. Based on our inherent quality of intelligence, we can attain enlightenment while living household life and contemplating impermanence within our self.
  4. 4. What is ‘cultivating the mind’? To understand the mind you have to watch and pay attention with an uncluttered and silent mind. Try to experience watching yourself in silence. That silence is the silence of the mind free from discriminations, free from likes and dislikes, free from clinging to impressions.
  5. 5. To meditate, no need to sit in padmasana! Thoughts and emotions by themselves are just momentary and possess no life of their own. By clinging to them you prolong their stay. Only when your mind is free from clinging and rejecting, you can see anger as anger, desire as desire. Understand and deal with anger, desire and ignorance as they occur. Train your mind to watch itself even while you are busy with your normal life.
  6. 6. Meditation = Mindfulness + Equanimity If you can be mindful without judgement and without likes and dislikes then you are practicing with an inner silence and equanimity. Staying with the moment and viewing everything without likes and dislikes.
  7. 7. What is equanimity? Equanimity is when the heart begins to open and we find a capacity to experience all that the world presents_ with balance, with love with openness. Begin to listen to our relationship to world, to observe it, to learn from it and learn a wise way of relating to it.
  8. 8. REFLECTIONS ON MEDITATION Silent mind, Sila, Panna, Samadhi
  9. 9. Silent Mind A truly silent mind is relaxed, yet alert and sensitive to its surroundings. This is because it is devoid of judging, clinging or rejecting yet compassionate. The silent mind is free from hatred, anger, jealousy, confusion and conflict. By their nature, thoughts are transient and go if the ‘I’ interferes and says ”Let them Go”
  10. 10. How can excessive indulgence in sense pleasures be avoided? Can you experience sense pleasure without being a slave to it? To be free of sense pleasure is neither to cling to it nor to run away from it but to learn to be free in yourself. Realize your freedom in the present moment being mindful in the moment.
  11. 11. SILA Right Speech [Samma vaca] Refrain from: falsehood, slander, harsh words and frivolous speech Right Action [Samma kammanta] Abstain from: killing, stealing, sexual misconduct Right Livelihood [Samma ajiva] Abstain from: trading in arms, human beings, animal slaughter, intoxicants and poisons
  12. 12. The Four Noble Truths Suffering, Cause, Cessation, Way
  13. 13. Panna Right Understanding [Samma ditthi] Knowledge of the four noble truths: Suffering, Cause of suffering, Cessation of suffering and Way leading to the Cessation of suffering. Right Thoughts [Samma sankappa] Thoughts free from: Lust, attachment, ill will and cruelty
  14. 14. Panna: Penetrating insight wisdom [Understanding + Intents] To look into yourself directly is to come back to your own source and to reach an inner equilibrium and silence. It is only from this inner equilibrium that you can view the outer chaos objectively as a circumstantial situation. See the cause behind the chaos , resolve it in the best way for the circumstances.
  15. 15. Samadhi: Striving to Freedom Right Mindfulness Right Spiritual Effort Right Perseverence _Collectedness
  16. 16. Samadhi: One Pointedness of Mind Right Effort [Samma Vayama] : To discard evil that has already arisen; To prevent the arising of unarisen evil; To develop unarisen good; and To promote the good that has already arisen. Right Mindfulness [Samma sati]: Mindfulness with regard to body, feelings, mental formations and ideas, thoughts, conceptions and things (dhammas).

  19. 19. Personal Management: Put first things first Are you an effective manager of yourself ? Follow your own deep values, their source. Act to actualize your proactive first creation.
  20. 20. The Laws of Love and the Laws of Life: When we love unconditionally, we help others to feel secure and safe, validated and affirmed in their essential worth, identity and integrity. As human beings we are responsible for our lives. Our behavior is a function of our decisions and not our conditions. We can subordinate feelings to our values.
  21. 21. Personal Management: Organize & execute around priorities FIRST: Important -Urgent, then [+Important-not-urgent] Focus on relationships & results Know when you got to say a firm ‘NO’
