Re: [SanghaOnline] Re: about detrimental thought process
- Dear Jess
its my pleasure to share my thoughts with you. yes i know that some times we make effort but there is not any result, in fact its no like that, what we having now is the result of what we did in past, what we are doing now is the cause for future, try to keep engage with meritorious work, we have to realise that by that the some bad situation we have to accept, when we accept some there are no any more suffering... you said its lack of patience too.. that is true. the foundation is Loving kindness and compassion.. on the base of compassion we have to practise six paramita, they are: 1,giviningness, 2, precept, 3,patience,4, effort, 5, mediation, 6, wisdom. when we arise the bodhicita with help of compassion, its help us to think about other sentient beings and by that we are easy and willing to practise six paramita, and while pact ice six parameta, others suffering is one own suffering, other happiness is one own happiness, other success is one own success. by that
one is very happy. But one important thing is don't be attach to any feeling or object. just let it go according to cause and condition but at the same time our motivation and attitude is beneficial for others.
good luck...keep practise..

Thank you for your advice/insights. Since writing my last
message I have come to see deeper into why my negative thoughts
arise. It is as you say because of selfish thoughts, but I also see
that lack of patience contributes greatly. It is hard in a society
that fosters the "I wasnt this now" or instant gratification
lifestyle to slow down and take our time. Because i see this at work
in my own life, I am learning to apply my efforts over a long period
of time for best results instead of putting all my energy at once
into the everyday things I do only to become frustrated with not a
getting a quicker result. thus leading to giving up, thus feeling
failure. the natural chain reaction. Patience and compassion towards
all living things is truely the only way to break this negative
habit. I thank you once again for your time and you thoughts.

> i can understand your feeling, and this is good that you
that kind of feeling which you have in your inner world. every one
have one own world, which is totally different then others. Most of
people are looking for outer to solve the problem. but that is not
the way. if we are happy or upset its arise from our inner heart
because of cause and condition.
> Now i would like to mention some method according to yourquestion. you have to create Bodhicita mind/ loving kindness and
compassion to all sentient beings. depression always come from
negative thoughts, try to think positive not only for oneself,but
for all sentient beings, when you sit for meditation, meditate on
happiness for all sentient beings. happy are those who work for
others and always thinking about others. its does not mean that
don't work for oneself dedicate you life for others. when you work
you can think about others. if one constantly think about other that
will bring happiness in one inner mind.
