Life is a practice.
In order for us to practice, God creates various illusions around us, and makes us fall into it. There are two main illusions:
First: Your envy of others, always look forward to their lives.
Second: Compliments from others to you always live in the eyes of others.
Most people spend their entire lives in the practice, so they can only feel it at the moment of death.Wake up and find that I have lived my entire life in admiration of others, and I have been expecting others to compliment myself all my life, but I have never lived my true self.
They only find that the true meaning of life is to live well every moment when they are dying, and every day that they never dance is a betrayal of life, but At this time their lives have also ended.
The world is like a huge cage, and life is like a huge chain. We are like the criminals in it. Everyone seems to be born free, but the chain is nowhere Not here.
No one’s life is not bitter, no matter the rich or the poor, the power or the powerless, you can see and can’t see groundFang, every family has scriptures that are difficult to recite, and everyone has unspeakable suffering, but everyone is at a different stage and in a different way.
Many people think that as long as they succeed, they will be able to break away from the entire huge shackles, but in fact, the so-called success is just another kind of practice Try another kind of suffering: before you succeed, you suffer from the torture of trivial life, and after success you suffer from the torture of loneliness.
Life is alive, the only The way to be liberated is to treat life as a kind of practice, to understand that everything we experience (good or bad) and everyone we meet (good or bad) is here to save us and we experience Every surprise, every pain we suffer is what makes us realize. Good or bad, pain or happiness, are just references for our practice.
Seeing through the price of success is a coup to keep success; discovering the meaning of suffering is the only way to face it.
True spiritual practice does not require hiding in the mountains and forests, nor in temples. If you can really see through life, you can see it the moment you close your eyes. See the Pure Land.
Therefore, the best practice site is the Hongchen Secular World, and the best way to practice is to practice your mind in the Hongchen. A common thing, every layman, as a tool for your practice.
