27.03.2000 - Interpretation of dali48
Perhaps the death fear prevents you - Fear arises from violent emotional rejection:
From rebellion and hatred - but what does it mean to rebel against something that is already established? - Why hate what will happen with certainty? - That's stupid. Nevertheless, most people do it - It is one of our countless crazes... - If we enjoy the best health, and life also gives us many favorable opportunities, we probably also take it for granted - what does not contribute to our satisfaction - Satisfaction grows out of the gratitude we feel for all positive living conditions - We can not be at home anywhere unless we can be a refuge and a homeland to ourselves - if we can not relax, find no peace in ourselves - Where our heart is, we feel at home - not where our body is... - This basis is the warm-hearted and loving treatment of ourselves - It is stupid to make our happiness dependent on others - Maybe it is even more than stupid. We are simply crazy if we want to make our security depend on the other one, who is striving for his own happiness and his own security - that is, in himself also unstable. When we rest firmly in our inner happiness and inner security, we have the strength and ability to resist all the confusion and difficulties that are brought to us from outside - No man in this world survives unhurt - There are no exceptions - But only those who have found their own center know where to find refuge in an emergency - in their own heart... (Ayya Khema)
Interpretation of dali48
We can learn it by abandoning every unhealthy thought, until only salutary, useful, and positive things live within us - The more unhealthy thoughts we hold, the more stained and polluted is our home, the center, out of which we are living... - By this you have realized that there is nothing that is significant in itself - Nothing has any inherent value... - Everything is a magical game - that passes by. This experience is a key experience - You can now better understand what the Buddha means with liberation... (Ayya Khema)
