修什麼 What to cultivate
Someone asked Buddha, “What does one get through cultivation?
Buddha replied, “Nothing.”
“Then why are you cultivating yourself for?
Buddha smiled, “But I can tell you what I’ve LOST though. I lost anger, worries, pessimism, and depression; I’ve lost anxiety and worried less; I’ve lost selfishness and the three poisons (ignorance, attachment, and aversion.)
It’d be here if it’s meant to be. It’d be no used to expect if it’s not to be, even when one begs. If it’s meant to be, don’t push it away. If it’s not, no need to ask for it. Welcome it when it comes. See it off when it’s gone. Follow the fate as the course of nature.
A wise person does not live as dictated. Nor does he/she live a life for other people. Be free. Be active or be silent; do what feels right. As long as you know what you’re doing, you’re cultivating yourself. Don’t wear a mask. It’s hard for people to know the real you and be your true friend.
The worst pain is a homeless soul. No matter you know it or not. Admit it or not. With a beautiful heart, nothing worries you. With a kind heart, no one is hateful. Be simple-minded and troubles in the world trouble you not. Be a good person and you’d have a calm mind and sleep well. Do good deeds and heavens and earth are your witness.
The real peace does not mean that you can sit in silence for hours. It’s more like viewing whatever happens in the world with a calm mind, such as listening to the sound of flowers in blossom.
Whatever appears in our life, they can not be owned, only experienced. We are travelers in time and one day, we’ll say farewell to everything. Whatever is in the present, cherish it. Whatever happened in the past, face it. Whatever is to come, accept it with an open heart.
