Humans always make mistakes. Life is a ceaseless succession of millions upon millions of moments. Sometimes when you are enlightened, a moment later, a new lesson will arise. Everything is always changing…
There are times when we have difficulty. It can be when work is deadlocked, family is messy, body is not healthy. At that time, the mood is often tense, or irritable, angry, sad, and even desperate for some reason. Like a coat is put on the back of a donkey and it falls down.
We can let loose words a couple of times with the people next to us, who are always loving, caring and closest to us. It can be your mother, father, husband, wife, or children. It is easy for everyone to talk about their own difficulties, but there are few people who understand the feelings that the people next to them are carrying… An arbitrary word is not fleeting, but like a knife cutting into someone’s heart. And there are wounds that take a long time to heal.
What practice to have long-term happiness?
I once, because I was busy, should have gone home, but had to leave immediately. Because of being subjective, I couldn’t go home or call my mother. My mother heard that when I came back that day, I was ready and looking forward to it. Then I didn’t see it, so I worriedly called everywhere to ask. My mother did not dare to call me right away because she thought I was busy and was afraid that I would be sick or had something wrong but did not want to tell her, she thought that I was often afraid of her worry, so she would not tell her many truths so that she could feel at ease. .
There were also times, I heard again when my mother dreamed that I was sick, that I was not happy. She never told me her worries and concerns, but somehow, I still know, and understand, and love her more! Over half of my life, I am still cared for by my mother and still find myself in a mess of foolishness and shortcomings.
“The hand that exercises compassion
Share the joy of the ordinary life”…
My mother is such a person.
I still often worry and have pangs when thinking about my mother. Always in the heart is always a worry.
Early this morning, while drinking tea in the early autumn period. I have a really good and beautiful space to look back on the pieces of time, nostalgia and the present. Colorful patches of feelings and mental formations are intertwined. Everyone has enough moments of sadness, anger, grief, shame and smugness… All like a slow-motion movie back in the mind.
I suddenly met a close friend from the old days. I took my friend’s hand and we smiled together, drinking tea together.
Meeting old friends again, I rambling to share the line of my heart. As to clarify, as to explain. Humans always make mistakes. Life is a ceaseless succession of millions upon millions of moments. Sometimes when you are enlightened, a moment later, a new lesson will arise. Everything is always changing. That’s why there are sentences “depending on conditions” and “according to the law”.
Because life operates like that, which is the law. Impermanence is inherently normal. Everyone is sometimes clumsy, sometimes heartless and hurts the people they love. So in this revolving life, from one lesson to another, the most important thing is to carefully observe and pay attention to your feelings to master your mental activities.
Of course, everyone will have a few times when they find themselves indifferent, a few times when they feel ashamed, be it with themselves or with others; then a few times I feel tormented and dissatisfied… But I can’t help but make mistakes, I can’t always be right and complete. The important thing is to see the truth, to see how I have matured, how I have loved life more, how I have understood myself after every event in my life.
I am an ordinary person, born in this life to learn my own enlightenment lesson. After learning this lesson, move on to another lesson. I rambled on. Then, suddenly, my friend took my hand, smiled and said: “So, let’s live innocently”…
We smile and drink tea together. In the cup of tea also appeared a good cloud.
