laat het leven je leven

Posted on okt 1, 2017

De diamanten natuur van ons innerlijk is geheel immanent. Wijzelf zijn het niet die een grasspriet laten groeien of een bloem laten bloeien.
We ademen zonder dat we er iets voor doen. En het leven is gegeven, op elk moment gegeven, laten we ons daarom niet opdringen aan de levensprocessen. Dat is vermoeiend. Neem rust!

atlas van onze emoties (incl. strategieën om met ze om te gaan)

Posted on sep 30, 2017

The Atlas of Emotion was commissioned by the Dalai Lama, his purpose is “ In order to find the new world we needed a map, and in order for us to find a calm mind we need a map of our emotions”. The simple, but not easy, goal of this Atlas is to help us be aware of our emotions. Awareness of our emotions means understanding how they are triggered, what they feel like and how we respond. Awareness itself is a strategy, it helps us understand our emotion experiences. We do not want to get rid of our emotions, we want strategies that help us respond in helpful, constructive ways.

The Dalai Lama imagined “a map of our emotions to develop a calm mind.” He asked his longtime friend and renowned emotion scientist Dr. Paul Ekman to realize his idea. Ekman took on the creation of the Atlas alongside his daughter, Eve Ekman, a second-generation emotion researcher and trainer. The Atlas represents what researchers have learned from the psychological study of emotion. – atlasofemotions.org

laten wij toch gelukkig leven

Posted on apr 10, 2017

Laten wij toch gelukkig leven,
niet hatend onder hen die haten,
laten wij niet hatend wonen,
onder mensen die haten.

Laten wij toch gelukkig leven,
rustig onder de rustelozen,
laten wij heel rustig wonen,
onder mensen die rusteloos zijn.

De overwinnaar roept haat op,
de verliezer is gedompeld in leed,
de vredige voelt zich gelukkig,
overwinning en nederlaag opgevend.

Shunmyo Masuno – zen priest and garden designer

Posted on mrt 4, 2017

“Through Zen ascetic practice an emotion of the mind is found that can’t be directly exposed or understood. One must therefore discover ways to communicate this emotion to others. That is, ‘the expression of oneself.’ The Zen Priest has traditionally turned to such classical arts as calligraphy, Ikebana, and rock placement. The venue of expression is not of major importance, choose an outlet where interests lie.” Shunmyo Masuno
