The Practical Buddhist Blog – Practical Advice on Integrating the Practice of Buddhism in Contemporary Life


We are taught that we are all born with real Buddha nature inside us, which it stays within us throughout our lives. I have actually utilized that reality in numerous methods in my practice, most notably in specifying my real self, instead of my ego self.

Several months earlier, however, I discovered of a lesson in the Course in Miracles which has actually amplified the import of this reality. Lesson 50 includes the following: “You are sustained by the Love of God within you. . . .  This is the answer to whatever confronts you today.   Through the love of God within you, you can resolve all seeming difficulties without effort and in sure confidence.” All I’ve done is change “God” with “true Buddha nature”

What I have actually pertained to recognize is that not just is my real self my real Buddha nature, however that there is something bigger than my self that occupies my body and soul. And it plays an active function in directing me through life. It’s like Buddha nature takes my real self by the hand. (Or due to the fact that my real self and Buddha nature are one and the very same, my real self is much bigger than I had actually understood and plays a more active function in directing me through life.) Understanding that this force abides within me has actually ended up being a source of much deeper faith and lightness of spirit.

Recently one early morning while practicing meditation, when I recited the affirmation, “I am sustained buy the love of Buddha nature within me,” it notified my practice of opening my heart to welcome all elements of my being and experience, specifically my injury. (See my posts, “The Heart’s Embrace” and “Trauma.”)

I realised that my Buddha nature/my real self shines its light and love on my injury points. And when it does that, in addition to recovery the injury, it liquifies, dissipates, the unfavorable energy that has actually streamed from that injury. Such as worry, absence of faith, feeling there’s something incorrect with me, feeling that I am not deserving of good luck (the list goes on!).

Two things. For the very first time I understood from within me that all my unfavorable energy streamed straight from previous injury. And by accepting my injury, by my Buddha nature shining light and love on my injury points, these unfavorable energies have actually damaged and I have the ability to launch that unfavorable energy from my body.

Regardless how Buddha nature inside me is developed, the palpable sensation of the light of Buddha nature recovery me and directing me is beyond words. I am extremely grateful for this mentor fromthe Course in Miracles
