A Movie called Life

July 14, 2009

After a couple of years practicing Vipassana, I start to understand what the Blessed One really wants us to do; training mindfulness and equanimity. It feels like watching a movie of your own life. All the time being aware and merely noting.

The teacher instructs you to start observing your breath and bodily sensations. Later on you will notice other things, too.

This is sense impression
This is perception
This is feeling
This is emotion
This is thought
This is form
This is non-form

Instead of being swept over by the strong current of the river (of life), you climb onto the bank and watch the river itself. Observant and equanimous, you start to cut the ties of suffering.

    But life isnt a movie
    there’s no “CUT” or “rewind”

    wish to get that🙂

    Must we aware about unresolved emotional issues that are carried from one life to another can be either impediments or guideposts on our individual paths?

    The Guest House
    by Mawlana Jalal-ad-Din Rumi

    This being human is a guest house.
    Every morning a new arrival.

    A joy, a depression, a meanness,
    some momentary awareness comes
    as an unexpected visitor.

    Welcome and entertain them all!
    Even if they are a crowd of sorrows,
    who violently sweep your house
    empty of its furniture,
    still, treat each guest honorably.
    He may be clearing you out
    for some new delight.

    The dark thought the shame, the malice,
    meet them at the door laughing,
    and invite them in.

    Be grateful for whoever comes,
    because each has been sent
    as a guide from beyond.

    *buruan kabur sebelum dilempar sandal*
    *latest slang: diem kamuh, cah nakal, ngacak-ngacak blog orang*
