Why approach monk mind❔

If you wanted to know how to dominate the basketball court, you might turn to Michael Jordan; if you wanted to innovate, you might investigate Elon musk; you might study Beyoncè to learn how to perform. If you want to train your mind to find peace and purpose? Monks are the experts

Letting Go

Letting Go

Leaves sprout, transform, drop. Reptiles, birds and mammals shed their skins, feathers, fur. Letting go is a big part of the rhythm of nature, as is rebirth.

We humans cling to materialistic stuff - letting those things go is a direct route to space (literally) and stillness. We separate ourselves - emotionally if not physically - from the people and ideas that surround us

Ways To Deal With External Negativity

Ways To Deal With External Negativity

Observer: We step away and look at the situation as if we are not in the middle of it. Negativity is a trait, not someone's identity.

Back away: Once you are in a stage where you can understand the situation, back away from negativity.

The 25/75 principle: For every negative person in your life, have three uplifting people. Be sure that at least 75% of your time is spent with positive people.

Allocate time: Only you have control over what you do every day. Allocate time for people according to their energy.

Don't be a saviour: If all someone needs is an ear, you can do that.

Filter OEO's, Don't Block Them

Filter OEO's, Don't Block Them

Once you filter out the noise of (opinions, expectations, obligations) oeo's, you will see the world through different eyes. The next step is to bring the world back in. When I ask you to strip away external influences, I don't want you to tune out the whole world indefinitely :)

Home = Hospital 😌

Home = Hospital 😌

The monks think of their ashram as a hospital, where they all are patients. They were all there to heal. To get better and healthier.

Everyone has different sicknesses, everyone is still learning, and just as we would not judge anyone else's health problem, we shouldn't judge someone who sins differently

We can also apply the same attitude to our lives.

Negativity Is Everywhere

Negativity Is Everywhere

Every day we are assaulted by negativity; no wonder we can't help but dish it out as well as receive it. This negativity is not part of anyone's plan of the day. What can we do then?

Rather than focusing on the negative, we can focus on the small joys of the day instead :)

We have three core emotional needs; peace, love, understanding

From these emotions stems all other sorts of emotional feelings; distress, anxiety, overwhelming feeling and so on

How? When we have a loss of any one of the emotional needs, it generates fear and fear further creates all sorts of negative emotions

Breath

Breath

The only thing that stays with you from the moment you're born until the moment you die is your breath. When you get stressed-what changes? Your breath. When you get angry-what changes? Your breath. We experience every emotion with the change of our breath. When you learn to navigate and manage your breath, you can navigate any situation in life.

Internal Negativity

Internal Negativity

Once we begin to neutralize the external tendencies, we become able to see our own negativity. Internal negativity Envy, complaint, anger.

The only competition you should do is to outstrip each other in showing love and respect

The more we define ourselves to the relation of others the more lost we are.

1) Anartha-nivritti: Letting go of unwanted emotions and thoughts

2) Spot, stop, swap: Become aware of the issue - SPOT, We address that issue - STOP, replace it with positivity -SWAP. Grass is greener where you water it. Complain mindfully. Choose words mindfully. Find joy in others.

Your identity is a mirror covered with dust. When you first look in the mirror, the truth of who you are and what you value is obscured. Clearing it may not be pleasant, but only when that dust is gone can you see your true reflection.

FATHER THOMAS KEATING

There is no commandment that says we have to be upset by the way other people treat us. The reason we are upset is because we have an emotional program.

I wanted to grow as a person. I didn't want to know humanity or compassion and empathy only as abstract concepts, I wanted to live them. I didn't want discipline, character, and integrity to just be things I read about. I wanted to live them 💗

Choice = Value

Choice = Value

Whenever we make a choice, whether it's big or small, we as driven by our values. If these choices work well for us, then our values are in alignment with our actions. But when things don't work out, it's worth revisiting what drove the decision you made.

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Sean Green

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Shankul Varada

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
