The 14. Dalai Lama on anger

Februar 12th, 2011 § 0 comments § permalink

Feelings of anger and hatred arise from a mind that is troubled by dissatisfaction and discontent. So you can prepare to deal with such occasions by constantly working to build inner contentment and by cultivating kindness and compassion. This brings about a certain calmness of mind that can help prevent anger from arising in the first place.

The 14. Dalai Lama on caring

Januar 7th, 2011 § 0 comments § permalink

I feel that the moment you adopt a sense of caring for others, it brings you inner strength. Inner strength brings inner tranquility, greater self-confidence. Because of such attitudes, even when things going on around you seem hostile and negative, you can still sustain your peace of mind.

Hence the insistence of all the great masters of the world…

If mind wants to comprehend reality, it will have to come out of the past and the future. But coming out of the past and the future, it is no more mind at all. Hence the insistence of all the great masters of the world: the door to reality is no-mind.

Sich wohlfühlen ist abhängig vom körperlichen und geistigen Empfinden wobei das Geistige dem Körperlichen übergeordnet ist.
Man kann trotz körperlichem Unwohlsein zufrieden sein, umgekehrt ist es möglich trotz bester körperlicher Verfassung zu leiden. Der Geist ist also die Basis der Zufriedenheit. Wer seinen Geist ein bisserl beobachtet wird feststellen, daß er ein auffallendes Eigenleben führt und wenig geneigt ist zu folgen. Ein erster Schritt also ist es seinen Geist zu formen.

Allgemein gesprochen gibt es zwei Möglichkeiten den Geist zu formen: Analytisch und „in einem Punkt ruhend“. Bei diesem Seminar wird „in einem Punkt ruhend“ vorgestellt und die analytische Form praktiziert.

Seminarziel

Der Teilnehmer vertieft Kenntnisse und Fähigkeiten über die Wechselwirkungen von Körper und Geist und wendet sie in persönlichen Lebenssituation an. Die Fähigkeit mit Veränderung umzugehen und sich entsprechend dem aktuellen Bewußtse neu zu positionieren wird geübt.

Zielgruppe

Das Angebot richtet sich an in Unternehmen eingebunde Personen und Privatpersonen die Interesse an selbstständiger Entwicklung haben.

Voraussetzungen für dieses Seminar

Ein persönliches Vorgespräch (kostenfrei)

Seminardauer

18 Stunden über einen Zeitraum 31 Tagen, auf Wunsch geblockt.

The 14th Dalai Lama on inner peace and joy

Juni 14th, 2002 § Kommentare deaktiviert für The 14th Dalai Lama on inner peace and joy § permalink

…inner peace and joy not only benefits the individual who develops it; it also benefits the entire human community,…
In this sense, the inner state of the mind is much more important than external conditions.
Therefore it is essential that we ourselves know the means by which a state of inner peace is created and cultivated. Not only would this benefit us individually in a very immediate, practical and down-to-earth sense; but also in this era when there is so much social tension on the earth, when the nations of the world are themselves so intensely concerned with competition and with efforts to overpower one another-even at the threat of nuclear devastation – it is most urgent for us to try to develop spiritual wisdom. At present the world is not lacking in technological or industrial development.
What are we lacking ?
A basis for inner harmony and joy.
Were we to cultivate the gentle pleasures of a loving and compassionate mind inspired by wisdom, the result would be that we would continually experience peace and happiness, even when confronted by external hardships, and we would have a pacifying effect on our chaotic environment rather than merely being caught up in and perpetrating it.

On the other hand, when our mind is bereft of spiritual qualities and instead we are controlled by inner forces such as greed, jealousy, aggression, pride and so forth, then even the most positive external conditions will fail to bring any significant comfort to the mind.
Hence this inner peace and joy not only benefits the individual who develops it; it also benefits the entire human community, and by extension this entire world in which we live.

Focus your mind.
Love your heart and cooperate with anyone who does the same.
