empty mind…

You see everything with empty mind.. Be at present!

You see everything with empty mind.. Be at present!

Some of us, we might only associate meditation as only in sitting posture with no thoughts in mind. The worst thing is we believe in whatever we are thinking is correct. If you are thinking you are right, there is no chance to correct your error and to follow the right path. Always open your heart to check and not believe blindly.

Its great if we can follow the teaching of Buddha,

“Do not believe in anything simply because you have heard it.

Do not believe in anything simply because it is spoken and rumored by many.

Do not believe in anything simply because it is found written in your religious books.

Do not believe in anything merely on the authority of your teachers and elders.

Do not believe in traditions because they have been handed down for many generations.

But after observation and analysis, when you find that anything agrees with reason and is conducive to the good and benefit of one and all, then accept it and live up to it. “

By Buddha

Always give yourself a chance to understand, to contemplate and to practice. Never ever believe in hear-say.

What is the meaning of meditation?

“True meditation is to calm the restless mind in everyday living.”

By Master Cheng Yen.

As such, you can practice meditation in any moment of life. When you are in present moment, your mind is free of the past and the future thoughts. You are just living at now, how free you are! You are mindful on what is happening in your surrounding, you are fully aware, your senses are so sharp with empty mind. Nothing bother or disturb you, you just want nothing in your life! What a beautiful moment! Why not continue your practice and let yourself be free in every moment of life!

Some of my friends asked me why do you see things that sometimes others not seeing? Imagine, if your mind is keep thinking about the past and future, there is no way you can see anything. You are “blind”, “deaf” when you are not at present moment. With the empty mind, you see everything!

Let’s practice, its benefit to you and also all beings.

  1. Very nice article! 🙂
    If you mean, by “practice”… to actually “do” things effortlessly, I agree with you. If you mean, by “practice”… to mechanically follow some man-made technique… then I do not. The true, historical Buddha was undoubtedly beyond mere mechanical methods and techniques… for such techniques are merely handed-down (old and dead) traditions.

    • Thanks bro.. “I want nothing, I do nothing and I am nothing…” “Do thing effortless and live at now.” With metta, Li Jiun

  2. I agree that one should not ‘blindly” believe concepts presented to them. In my opinion, our minds are built to question and through questioning we come closer to achieving understanding. Understanding then leads to freeing the mind, and being able to more successfully live in the present. A very interesting post. Thank-you for sharing your thoughts. Cheers!

  3. I so do agree with the teaching of Buddha you quote here, I despair at those that do the opposite.
