If This Doesn't Change Your Destiny, Nothing Else Will.

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


I have actually composed in lots of posts about the need of releasing yourself from the control of your mind and seeing yourself as something aside from the mind. What resonated with me was that my real self is my heart, my real Buddha nature. I have actually likewise composed just recently about the significance of taking on a brand-new name to opt for the brand-new identity. As well as compassionately burying your old self with its injury.

This post demonstrates how this brings you cycle. We begin strolling the course due to the fact that we wish to end our suffering. We wish to alter this element of our life. And we find out the actions needed in order to accomplish that. The course is in one sense straight- forward and yet it is incredibly tough needing terrific discipline and perseverance due to the fact that the power that the mind has more than us.

When it’s all stated and done, what we have actually done through this practice is provide ourselves an option regarding how we choose to react to life occasions, instead of have our regular energy control how we respond to occasions, and hence the occasions truly manage us. And so we end our suffering.

For example, something occurs that would usually press your buttons; you would get mad, upset, and it would destroy your day. Now, nevertheless, you have the power to state you do not wish to feel that method, it harms you. This is simply the method it is today and you focus your energy rather on something that nurtures you. You not just rest undisturbed, however you reinforce yourself by doing something that benefits you.

This is the execution of the Serenity Prayer, “Lord, give the the serenity to accept the things I cannot change – which are the way things are right now at this moment – and the courage to change the things I can, which are the thoughts I think, the words I speak, and the actions I take.”

By providing yourself the chance to pick how to react to occasions, instead of respond constantly, you are altering the things you can. And you have actually discovered the essential to releasing yourself from suffering.
