MORE IDEAS FROM THEBOOK
Don't believe anything I tell you, don't believe in religion or spiritual teachers, don't believe just because it's been written down somewhere but if after investigating, you find something beneficial in this, do your best to live upto it.
Man is created with two natures- the nature of flesh, with all its passion for eating, drinking, sleeping and all the rest - and then the nature of spirit. Here, in this lonely place, there is time to feed that spirit.
Those who claim to know, know nothing but those who say they don't know, know everything.
Noise has become our default setting, silence an ever more alien concept.
Noise is an integral component of modern civilisation.
It is an evil with deep roots, it all goes with the spiritual disorientation of our time.
Noise is welcome because it drowns the inner instinctive warning. Fear seeks noisy company and pandemonium to scare away the demons. Noise, like crowds gives a feeling of security, therefore people love it, noise protects us frompainful reflections, it scatters our anxious dream. It assures that we are all in the same boat.
To understand the truth, you must let go of the situation. A clear mind has no inside and no outside. A clear mind is clear of thinking.
2 Buddhist monks were fighting over a flag. One said the flag was moving. The other said the wind is. The master however said it was neither the flag nor the wind. "Your thoughts are the only ones moving."
Nature has no contradictions. Our problems exist just in our head. Our thinking is making us deluded. One had to let go of 🤔 to understand Zen.
One of the major reasons why silence can play an important role in everyday life is the ability to focus as the modern world and its various noises enter your brain all at once. The ability to focus on different tasks is often accompanied by a little background noise.
Focus is almost always lost when a sound reaches around 80 decibels. A Noise free environment or one with just a little background noise will help you concentrate the best.
