When you fall down due to the potholes, are you going to share with people to avoid it?
When you being cheated by others, are you going to warn people to be careful?
When you discover a shortcut, are you going to share with people?
Sometimes, when you are kind enough to share with others, to be here and now instead of keep chasing in order to satisfy our desires, you might assume this as suffering, yet others see this as happiness in life.
Many of us, if we assume suffering as happiness, there is no chance for us to awaken as we are too contended by illusions in life. It’s just like bubbles, it’s not real.
I heard a profound teaching from Ajahn Brahm that most of us no longer “human Being”, we are “human going”. Why? Human Being, mean being here and now, totally at present moment. “Human Going” means we are always on the go.. no stillness, no peacefulness and not at present for sure…
Take some times to contemplate are you “human being” or “human going”?
No matter how much advice you give to others, to share with them how important to be at present, yet many might not aware and believe.
How should you react when people refuse to change? Are you sad? stress? angry? upset?
As long as you do your part to advice, to help people avoiding doing unwholesome action, whether they listen or not, it’s all depend on them.
If you are kept on “forcing them” to listen to your advice, you are going to create negative feeling.
They might keep a distance from you, and there is no chance to advice gradually.
Don’t force, when conditions are ripen, they are going to be awaken.
