Sadhu! x3. Very good and I had edited the draft short notes and am pleased to attach and forward the edited short notes as below for sharing by all:
Short notes to our Tuesday class sharing dated 16.1.2018:
- Bro. Teoh gave a Guided meditation on how to train one’s mind to be mindfulto develop the meditation as taught by the Buddha.
- Nature’s Universal laws or orders ….. This whole universe is governed by these 5 natural universal laws (Panca nyamas) or orders: they are Nature’s physical order (utu niyama), biological order (Bija niyama), law of karma (karma niyama) , law of mind (citta niyama) and law of truth (dhamma niyama). Hence all beings are also subject to these laws. The 1st two are scientific laws and the last three are spiritual laws.
- Mindfulnesswill arise when our mind is not crowded with thoughts, for mindfulness is awareness before the knowing or the arising of thought.When we are mindful we will be more aware of our own mental and physical movements and our environment and surroundings. We will also be more sensitive to our feelings and emotions including the emotions of others around us – we can feel and sense their fear, worry, anxiety and sadness etc. The problem is most people can’t cut off their heedless thinking, mental chattering and inquisitiveness. Such mental activities (which are our thinking and emotions) uses up a lot of our life force energy.
- Bro. Teoh did a detailed review of our previous 9th Jan 2018 Tuesday class sharing bygoing through its printed short notes. These review and short notes will help kalyanamittas (especially the newer ones) to better understand all that were shared during the classes.
(Note: The above draft short notes was prepared by Sister Hooi Yoon Chun)
Bye! and with metta always, Teoh
