  • Not-doing vs. Non-doing

    Not-doing vs. Non-doing

    “Not-doing” leads to passiveness, detachment, egocentric giving up of, and flatness in life; whereas “Non-doing” allows active, free, vibrant participation, and manifestation of life, beyond the egoic self. Such is the essence of Chinese non-duality, as described in Taoist and Buddhism classics.

  • Taoist teachers, students

    Taoist teachers, students

    The universe responses, continuously. When we humble our “selves”, and ask for guidance, teachers and teachings appear. They could appear in different forms (a teacher, friend, family member, colleague, boss, team, customer, client, regulator, stranger, or even as general phenomena). When the student is adapt and mature, the “selves” become quiet, and the separation between…

  • 聆聽,欣賞,接納

    聆聽,欣賞,接納

    你懂身邊人嗎? 利益關係和情感關係外,他是個什麼樣的人? 有什麼的故事和追求? 你懂這世界嗎? 家庭教育,學校認知,和媒體描述外,這世界是如何運作的?跟我是什麼關係? 你懂自己嗎? 不同的社會角色,和面具背後,我到底是什麼?在無邊的生命洪流裡,和多元世界中,我要成為一個什麼樣的人? 自己都未認識清楚時,就認為自己了解其他人,及對其他人作出隨意的批判和評價,是自以為是的無知和莽撞,除增長我慢和製造混亂外,一無是處。 更好的態度,是保持謙虛和尊重的心態,去聆聽,欣賞,和接納。這樣做,會帶來知見的增長,心量的擴大,和生活的和諧美滿。 老子云:知不知,上(知道自己不知道,為上);不知知,病(唔知道自己不知道,扮知道,是病)。

  • Why practice Qigong?

    Why practice Qigong?

    Qi, or Chi, is the vital life energy everyone possesses. It connects the mind and the body. When abundant and balanced, leads to health and clarity of mind, when depleted and imbalanced, pain and illness. Thus Qigong is a good supplement to mindfulness practice, which focuses primarily more on the mind. photo source: wikihow

  • 七月

    七月

    這世界到底有沒有鬼神? 傳統中華文化是肯定的,雖然不會建議你胡亂來。 實質上,心物一元,心誠則靈。一般人沒有定力和覺力,所以覺知不到而已。 外國有沒有? 當然也有,不過習俗信仰不同,所以出現時間和形式不同。 同人生有什麼關係? 太上感應篇云:禍福無門,惟人自召;善惡之報,如影隨形。 召善神抑或惡神,善鬼抑或惡鬼,就要看我們的身口意行為了。 其實,每一刻都是七月,每一刻都是新年。

  • 高手

    高手

    一般人只看到治亂的英雄, 治病的明醫. 其實真正的高手是在亂象病象未發生之前, 已經平定了. 我們要學會欣賞高手, 和做高手. “一年四季春夏秋冬,我們身體及情緒的感覺也有春夏秋冬。 我再講個小事,跟我久了的同學就知道我有一個習慣,他們每天早上先把當天的氣象報告給我。最高多少度,最低多少度,今天是什麼濕度,知道了以後你就曉得穿衣服了。其實你要講養生之道,這些通通要注意。 從陰陽則生,逆之則死,從之則治,逆之則亂,反順為逆是謂內格。”所以你要懂陰陽四時這個法則,自己養生,調養、保養這個身體。如果違反了就會生病,內在出問題了。 是故聖人不治已病治未病,不治已亂治未亂,此之謂也。”這是中國上古的文化,醫道跟政治是一樣的,懂得政治的歷史上大名家,都懂得醫,因為都是醫學道理來的。所以“聖人不治已病治未病”,在沒有病的時候,有一點不對就先吃藥,先把它治好;等到已經生病再治已經晚了。 政治的道理也是一樣,天下大亂,你來平天下,不算有功勞;能夠使國家社會永遠不亂,這才是大政治家。看起來沒有功勞,其實功勞最大。這幾句話是中國文化的精華。” 南懷瑾 —《小言黃帝內經與生命科學》

  • 欲愛情

    欲愛情

    欲,是以“我”為中心,其他人事物,只是用來滿足“我”和“我”所喜愛的色受想行識。能量水平125 愛,是以“他/她/它”為中心,為了“他/她/它”的幸福快樂,可以放下“我”。看媽媽對孩子的愛,寵物對主人的愛,從有條件到無條件的。能量水平500+ 情,欲很薄了,愛也由強烈的二元往來,轉化為整體的關注和思念。看親情,人情,覺悟有情。 有智慧,有定力,先有條件談情說愛。否則,是隨波逐流,不能持續的。

    One day, when the Buddha was meditating as a Bodhisattva, king Kaliraja came test the Buddha.  He said, ok, now you are practicing the 6 paramitas (charity, precepts, endurance, diligent, concentration, wisdom), let see how enduring and charitable you are!  And he start cutting off Buddha’s limbs one by one.  The Buddha did not resist, and let Kaliraja…

    Diamond Sutra – There is no Buddha who attained enlightenment – 金刚经 – 佛没得道,因大道不能得故

    There is no Buddha who obtained enlightenment. Why?  Because real enlightenment cannot be obtained by anyone, as such implied the dualistic paradigm of “someone” obtaining something called “enlightenment”.  While in ordinary perception there appear to be a historical Buddha who obtained a state called enlightenment, in reality, or at least in Buddha self-described reality, this…
