Re: Rebirth in everyday life

"what do you mean by "would turn mind in delusion"? Do you mean show the mind its delusions?" No, by showing loving kindness thinking to then fall in distraction again (like emotional). Mind ( no nature recognition) ( no Paramitas) can think when I take care of fellows, like altruistic or engaged t...

Re: Rebirth in everyday life

"From a Buddhist point of view, the actual experience of death is very important. Although how or where we will be reborn is generally dependent on karmic forces, our state of mind at the time of death can influence the quality of our next rebirth. So at the moment of death, in spite of the great v...

Re: Would I be correct in thinking that the enlightened knowledge gained by Buddha-hood

Appears to be so. Each thought has no form shape or size yet it reflects appearance. Wonderful! Then craving-grasping becomes bit more clear when these appearances are perceived as real ( seen as being there apart of thoughts on their own) and get by our own habitual karmic baggage, their character...

Re: Rebirth in everyday life

There are no substantial apprehensions which can be collected and taken in a bag by the idea of self. That is why there is need for Dharma in daily life, I guess. H H Dalai Lama was asked whether or not Bodhichitta was "accomplished", he answered death would reveal it. Bodhichitta beyond birth and d...

Re: Rebirth in everyday life

This selfless Love as the living guiding Masters, pointing to own Love. Love is not passion, but COMpassion, which is no subje...

Re: How to (try to) resolve family conflict?

Emotional frustrations are 'artists', forming a scenario like a tv drama soap, seeing faults with others, which allows no inner peace, no harmony, no patience. Listening without pointing a finger, they perhaps can do? Remain aware of own mind, to not run in destructive dialogues, would help. Because...

But it is more at peace and more successful when based on the intention to accept everything as a foundation for further discernment.
