Prayers before bedtime. Then reading chapters of Dhammapada on illusory nature of transient pleasures to my boys at their request. Respecter of the world's religions.

Rockin' bhangra. Bollywood performance on my mind. Driving boys to practice. Can't be normal. We're pilots. Initiating hyper-drive in T minus 3, 2, 1, etc.

Angry. Disgusted. Contempt for X. Daughter, in her innocence, telling how the dirty tramp & her bf kiss in public (like this) *brings fingers together. Sings song about mommy & bf sitting in a tree.

So there's the emotionally charged thought and narrative. It draws in consciousness and pulls mood down, disturbing peace. I can continue to feed this and remain in darkness or choose to forgive and let go. Hmmm, easier said than done, tho.

Still, not one to miss an opportunity for learning & growth. Good time to practice- when the intensity is real! I accept the challenge. See what I can do with this.

Learned lots of things & developed many skills, but none contributes to my peace as much as the ability to disengage from the oppressiveness of thinking & resting in stillness even w/an agitated mind
John T

Disenganging thinking during meditation helped me think better if I had to work out a tough puzzle or some kind of practical problem. I just found meditation not very fun, it was certainly helpful though. How do you make it fun, Love?

Hi, John, I've been doing this for 3 decades. It's a tool for rebooting the mind and for discovering the true Self. The work can be challenging & lifelong, but worthwhile & essential all the same.

John T

Like I suggested I've tried it before. I guess one day it might stick into a routine for me. Until then, it's useful to have an understanding of the mind's potential peacefulness. It's something to keep with me and turn to should I need.

B/c we werent taught how to detach from thinking & disengage- we identify w/mind & suffer. A single thought charged w/emotion can obliterate one's joy. Better to obliterate addiction to thinking.

old friend wanted to know why I was living like a monk. He knew me when I was a Playboy. Assumed I was miserable. Far from it. Spirit is strong; heart @ peace. Mind is flexible, emotions pliant.

he's a beautiful friend. Was concerned. Surprised with transformation. Doesnt get it as he loves women. Unfaithful husband.I disapprove of that, but dont condemn him. We each find our own path.

17 Feb 2018 ·

Thanks, Esther. It's working for me as a kind of therapy. I started dating again post-divorce, but realized my heart wasnt ready. So, I'm putting my heart, passion, and energy into other things.

Love 1
17 Feb 2018 ·

Agreed, Jeff. For me, a quiet mind IS a happy mind. Lieteke, I think it's sad most people do not know peace. Sure, we all get overwhelmed and suffer time to time, but to have no refuge or quiet center to rest need not be.

Lieteke G
17 Feb 2018 ·

It is sad! Society is really putting so much pressure on everyone, to be thin, to have great jobs, to have all the latest gadgets to do.. to have.. but people don't realise that won't make them happy. Inner peace, staying fit, eating healthy is what

Lieteke G

Helps to make you who you really are. Trying to better yourself, through study, meditation or whatever way. And of course taking care and respecting others.. we humans really forget about that most of the time.

Slept well. Ended with an insightful dream on social dynamics. Saw X on V-Day. Yuck! Poor thing doesnt love herself. How can she possibly love another-yet maintains the illusion of such a possibility.
Love 1
15 Feb 2018 ·

Rather than model love- compassion, patience, faithfulness, tolerance, acceptance, kindness, forgiveness, consideration, loyalty, compromise, selflessness, et al- she confounds love with pleasure, which never lasts. The kids are watching.

Love 1
15 Feb 2018 ·

Anyway, my soul is at peace. I celebrated agape, the purest form of love, on V-Day. and a little metta. May she know true love and be freed from illusions and suffering.

Who are you thats lost & trying to build a concept of a self thats found? Who are you thats broken & trying to build a concept of a self thats fulfilled?

Who are you thats ill & trying to build a concept of self that is healthy? Who are you that struggles, trying to build a concept of self thats enlightened? Its ego wiggling into a new shell, like a hermit crab.

why do we care so much whether others accept the facade we put out there? Why do we defend it so vigorously? When we're offended it may mean it hit the false part of us we built in order to protect what needed no defense. Let the false self crumble.

Letting go of the pull that thoughts have on consciousness. What starts as a passing thought draws consciousness into it. Giving it attention & energy empowers it. Better to remain seated within.

7 billion billion billion atoms make up the entity I call me. The thing I call me sits in silent contemplation, marveling at the mystery of existence. Stepping outside the storylines of ego to wonder.

Dying to ego. Rather than self-destructing, there is deconstructing- the falling away of identification with thinking. The fingers reach for the mug of green tea sweetened with raw honey.

Try Moroccan Tea, it's a mixture of green tea and fresh spearmint leaves, with tons of sugar. (It's still nice without all the sugar because the mint is sweet enough for me, but then, I normally drink green tea without sugar...)
