Last Sunday morning, I spent time to do netting for the new home of hairy melon. We’ve extended from the previous structure as we added in 3 more hairy melon plants. I enjoyed very much on the quiet time in the early morning accompanied with the happy songs from lovely birds. We can be so mindful and 100% live at now. You are observing your thoughts, you are aware on the arisen and cessation of thoughts. How wonderful to be live at now!
Sometimes, people might be misunderstood that meditation equivalent to sitting meditation only, as such, we might only doing sitting meditation and the rest of the time, we allow our mind to run like wild monkey. Think about it, why not be mindful in any moment of life, you can apply it to whatever you are doing whether sitting, working, cooking, reading, singing, laying down, talking, standing, gardening, driving, walking, running, eating, chatting and……Try to practice and you can feel the difference in your life and also your surrounding.
There is a good lesson for us to learn by looking at the hairy melon…
It’s so similar to our life, even though siblings yet our destiny in life might be totally difference. It all depend on us, what do you want in your life? How do you generate more good causes and enjoy the good effect later?
Don’t complain on bad luck, not fair and others negative excuses which not going to improve your life.
Why not follow the teaching from Master Cheng Yen:
“Do good deeds and make good wishes each and every day.”
Its bring happiness to yourself and others too.
