Boredom: The Gateway To Freedom...?

Boredom has gotten a bad rep.

All my life, I've looked at it as something negative. This week, my perception shifted.

I was visiting family in my hometown and accompanied my mom to a meditation and discussion session at the Shambhala center. It was excellent. So I went the next week as well. And in the discussion group, an article was read that contained a small nugget of wisdom that created quite a powerful mindshift in me. Namely, that boredom can serve amazingly.

When discussion time came, I shared my ah-ha, and the lady leading the group proceeded to talk about the concept of 'hot' versus 'cold' boredom - 'hot' being that usual boredom people most think of when lacking stimulation/excitement, 'cold' boredom being significantly more useful as an exhaustion of attachment to that which no longer serves us.

Boredom with our neuroses. Boredom with old habits. Boredom with our own bullshit.

Yeah.

Who knew.

Looking around the Buddhist temple. The beauty of the History.

Somebody told me that there is a beatifule temple near my office.
He told me that I can get someting what I want if I pray for it in that temle.
I dont belive in the superstitious, but It was interesting.

Yesterday was perfect.
Sky wss blue, birds were singing.

From the parking place, It took a more than 30 minuits to meet a stone showing me there is a temple.

image

Passing to the stone, I found the Portal.

image

Inside if the portal was very colourful.

image

More than 20 mins needed to walk

image

On the road the stone Buddha welcome to me.

Silence is a virtue

https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/2/28/Pause_%28silence%29.svg/326px-Pause_%28silence%29.svg.png

It was Ben Franklin, (1706-1790), who said that Silence was a virtue in his autobiography, and described the virtue as, Speak not but what may benefit others or yourself; avoid trifling conversation.

With young children and a noisy open-plan office environment, I crave silence in all its forms. The absence of sound, the inner stillness that comes from meditation, yoga and retreat and times of solitude is an antidote.

I once attended a 10-day silent retreat at a monastery in the countryside. It was quiet, with woods and fields for walking meditation and silent contemplation. It had a powerful effect upon me, particularly when we were permitted to talk again with other participants and all speech appeared to lack harmony.

For spiritual growth and transformation, a silent mind, free from thought is considered essential in Buddhism and has been common practice since the rainy season retreat

4 things to do if you want to become a Buddhist monk

Phurba-me-588x516.jpg

Ever thought about leaving everything behind and become a Buddhist monk?

Have you, at some stage in your life, felt inspired by devoting yourself to meditation and helping others?

I’m always happy when I hear that someone is considering to walk that path. It can be a unique way to deepen one’s understanding and to help people.

However, let me share a few things I learned on the way (I was a Tibetan buddhist monk for 10 years). I summarized them in 4 tips that you might want to consider before making a decision.

Here are 4 important aspects of a monk’s life, I’ll start with the rough ones. If you are a woman considering to become a nun, the very same applies.

## Personal tranquility? Just forget it.

The mass media has fed us pictures of serene meditators, facing gorgeous Himalayan landscapes.

You’ll probably have moments like that if you chose to become a monk, but tha

The Root Cause: Social Oppression and the 4 Noble Truths

https://i.imgsafe.org/3cb83c1f57.jpg

It is no secret that freedom can cease to exist. Far beyond the dogma of religious institutions, we find that our social architectures can reflect our spiritual traditions. If the ideas and actions of Mother Teresa, Simone de Beauvoir, Noor Inayat Khan, Vandana Shiva, Pema Chodron, and others, were supported to the same degree as our banking and real estate systems are, how different would our world appear!? Pope Francis, Abbie Hoffman, Muhammed Ali, Ghandi, Lama Garchen Rinpoche, and countless others, have expressed their spiritual values in respect to social philosophy. Political philosophy and social activism exemplify an evolutionary process. Like all relative matters in an objective and ever changing duality, a time-based reality of what was, is, and is to come, socioeconomic action has causes and effects. These causes and effects are secondary to our internal observation of our external identity. Even to a Tibetan monk, while emolliating himself, the primary issue a

Slow Saturday: Cutting Through Spiritual Materialism, by Chogyam Trungpa


In an ideal world, Saturdays will be reading days. There will be laws stating the exact amount of cosiness of your coach, the exact amount of coffee in your cup sitting handy on the coffee table and the exact amount of hours dedicated to reading in this context: minimum 6. And we should all obey these laws, otherwise we will be punished by working, instead of reading.

Alas, there aren't such laws on this planet, at least not yet.

Well, even without these laws, I managed to do a solid block of 6 hours reading today. Minus coffee. And minus the cosiness of the coach. Because what I read wasn't a book, but code. JavaScript, AngularJS, stuff like that. Ok, I admit it: I worked almost the entire day at @zentasktic. With some moderate success, to be honest, but not with the success I was expecting. If my work would have been as effective as I wanted it to be, this post would have been generated from within

Nobody is Compassionate

"Myths tell us how to confront and bear and interpret suffering, but they do not say that in life there can or should be no suffering.

When the Buddha declares there is escape from sorrow, the escape is Nirvana, which is not a place, like heaven, but a psychological state of mind in which you are released from desire and fear ... (and your life becomes — ) harmonious, centered, and affirmative (even with suffering).

The Buddhists speak of the bodhisattva — the one who knows immortality, yet voluntarily enters into the field of the fragmentation of time and participates willingly and joyfully in the sorrows of the world. And this means not only experiencing sorrows oneself but participating with compassion in the sorrows of others. Compassion is the awakening of the heart from bestial self-interest to humanity.

Consciousness Exists Eternally.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1cpDDXQNZ_Q

Apparently consciousness is everywhere. And it is consciousness that re-incarnates according to Buddhism. New theories in neuroscience suggest consciousness is an intrinsic property of everything, just like gravity. buddhism and neuroscientists are on the same page.

Worth listening to these wise words of both a great scientist and the Noble Winner, Dalai Lama about what consciousness is really...

Solitary Monk sits atop a mountain in Phu Hin Ronkla, Thailand

https://s21.postimg.org/uewp9y5jr/IMG_8714.jpg

Some friends and I had traveled to Petchabun province in the north of Thailand to see how the locals celebrated Thai New Year. Nearby where we were staying there was a large National Park. The national park although not particularly well known among travellers, covers nearly 80,000 acres and stretches across 3 Thai provinces all the way to Laos. Due to the rugged terrain and isolated location, the park served as home to the CPT (Communist Party of Thailand) during most of the tumultuous late 70's and early 80's.

We were suggested to take about a 20km drive to the top of one of the mountains in the park (Phu Hin Ronkla) where we would see the rock formations of Lan Hin Taek (‘field of the cracked stones’). At this point, near the edge of the mountain sandstone knolls create a strange visual aesthetic.

Bubbles And A Butterfly

https://scratchliving.files.wordpress.com/2016/10/unnamed-file.jpg

I was into bubbles a few years ago, still like to draw and paint bubbles. I like iPad games popping bubbles too! This was done in watercolor if I remember correctly. I did a whole series of bubble paintings and sold or gave all of them away.

Phena Sutta: Foam, translated from the Pali by Thanissaro Bhikkhu

Form is like a glob of foam;
feeling, a bubble;
perception, a mirage;
fabrications, a banana tree;
consciousness, a magic trick —
this has been taught
by the Kinsman of the Sun.
However you observe them,
appropriately examine them,
they're empty, void
to whoever sees them
appropriately.

Beginning with the body
as taught by the One
with profound discernment:
when abandoned by three things

— life, warmth, & consciousness —
form is rejected, cast aside.
When bereft of these
it lies thrown away,
sensele

How To Find Peace Of Mind

https://youtu.be/Bi6vvhXfScU

This is the first video released by a project that I admire very much, called Study Buddhism. The project is coordinated by prof. Alexander Berzin (many times translator of The Dalai Lama and a very profound connaisseur of Tibetan Buddism) with whom I had the privilege to talk a few times. In February this year I also had the privilege to organize an event with him and one of his colleagues and it was a very enlightening, but at the same time natural and warm, experience.

The short video above dwells on 3 main principles that you need to understand before starting to train your mind for happiness: interdependence (everything is related to everything), impermanence (everything will cease to exist, eventually) and compassion (everybody has his own set of troubles and fighting his own battles).

It's simple advice but it just works.

Tibetan letter "A" for dream yoga.

Tibetan A is a sacred symbol that is used in tibetan practices of yoga dream. It is essential to concentrate on that symbol for improvement of awareness in lucid dreams.

The images below are drawn from tibetan script. I've made to use as a desktop background. I can make it in any resolution you wish absolutely for free. Feel free to ask.

Voluntaryist Reflections on Literature- Buddhism's 8 Verses for Training the Mind

#reinvest post

 Religious writings have always been the most controversial throughout  history, so I thought to myself, why not give a good critique of  some of the most inspiring, thought provoking religious writings from my  current perspective as an anarchist. I have started in on this  reading religious meditations, verses and other writings on and off for  most of my life, but never dissected them before for what they are. In  the Anarchist Reflections on Literature section this week, we will  review Buddhism's 8 Verses for Training the Mind 

Verse 1 "With a determination to achieve the highest aim For the benefit of all sentient beings Which surpasses even the wish-fulfilling gem, May I hold them dear at all times." 

According to the Dalai Lama, this first verse identifies the greatest  achievement for oneself is to work for the benefit of all sentient  beings. At first, you may se

Free Your Mind and Escape The Matrix

https://www.steemimg.com/images/2016/09/17/freeyourmind1ce27.jpg

I'm trying to free your mind, Neo

Like Neo in The Matrix things are not what they appear to be. We may live our whole lives thinking we know what is real only to find out perhaps when we draw our last breath that we were wrong. A lot of people think the Matrix is out there - our jobs, the people around us, society…so we start looking around ourselves for a way out of the maze and start running and moving and changing things on the outside thinking YES this time I’ve got it!

But the Matrix is not out there. It’s inside of us. We are the ones that create it. The way that we create this matrix is by thinking that our thinking is who we are. So, when we notice the narrative in our heads that says this job is wrong so now I need to escape or this person is wrong so I need a new partner or society is so messed up that it’s society’s fault that I feel bad or my life is terrible it must be true, right?

I’m not saying that it’

Buddhist Philosophy for Beginners: Understanding Emptiness

You might know me as a film producer and Bitcoin activist, but I am also interested in other subjects.

Buddhist philosophy is one of the topics I find fascinating. One of the most misunderstood concepts of Buddhism is Emptiness, so I would like to explain it today.

In western languages, emptiness sounds quite negative, like the famous half-empty glass that pessimists always see. If you „feel empty“ you lack meaning or purpose in your

Anarchist Reflections on Literature- Buddhism's 8 Verses for Training the Mind

Religious writings have always been the most controversial throughout history, so I thought to myself, why not give a good critique of some of the most inspiring, thought provoking religious writings from my current perspective as an anarchist. I have started in on this reading religious meditations, verses and other writings on and off for most of my life, but never dissected them before for what they are. In the Anarchist Reflections on Literature section this week, we will review Buddhism's 8 Verses for Training the Mind

Verse 1

"With a determination to achieve the highest aim

For the benefit of all sentient beings

SEAT OF HIS HOLINESS THE 17TH GYALWANG KARMAPA ORGYEN TRINLEY DORJE

From the Monastery of the Practice Lineage, Karma Kamts’ang (sgrub-brgyud karma kaM-tshang gyi dgon-sde):

Respectfully addressed to all the Assemblies,
