Comment on To be less conflicted with others, be less conflicted within yourself by Tracking Happiness https://www.wildmind.org/blogs/on-practice/to-be-less-conflicted-with-others-be-less-conflicted-within-yourself/comment-page-1#comment-1065035 Fri, 15 Dec 2017 15:10:08 +0000 https://www.wildmind.org/?p=37524#comment-1065035 This is so true. Happiness is something we can control, by being aware of everything that causes unhappiness.

Great read :)

Comment on Should I listen to music when I meditate? by Odile https://www.wildmind.org/background/can-anyone-meditate/music/comment-page-2#comment-1064703 Mon, 11 Dec 2017 18:07:38 +0000 https://test.wildmind.org/background/music/#comment-1064703 Personally, my experience with meditation accompanied by relaxing or “nature music” has been quite helpful. My guess is, it works for some and maybe not so well for others. When I meditate with music, it helps me focus on my visualizations and block annoying thoughts that hinder me. My goal is merely to reach a peaceful state of mind and bliss as well. I personally believe that if things are chaotic externally, there must be something going on within ourselves as well. Meditation helps me with this factor and it helps me out in life, basically. I love hearing other people’s accounts on mediatation and I just wanted to share this part of my experience. Happy day to you all!

Comment on Lovingkindness chant by Derek Hummerston https://www.wildmind.org/metta/special-lovingkindness-meditations/lovingkindness-chant/comment-page-1#comment-1064241 Thu, 07 Dec 2017 15:45:48 +0000 https://www.wildmind.org/metta/special-lovingkindness-meditations/lovingkindness-chant/#comment-1064241 As others have already said, this is a very special page. If you know could you tell me who owns the copyright to the chant by Venerable Ariya Ñana? I’d very much like to put a low-key musical accompaniment to this.

Yours in the Dharma,

Derek

Glad you & Kevin joined forces. With your energy & passion for recovery & the Dharma, the BRN will get a much needed boost. I am re-starting the Buddhist recovery group at Aryaloka that Anilasri & I facilitated for a few years. Be well.

Comment on Let the breathing observe you by Ian https://www.wildmind.org/blogs/on-practice/letting-the-breathing-observe-you-in-meditation/comment-page-1#comment-1063832 Tue, 05 Dec 2017 20:44:18 +0000 https://www.wildmind.org/?p=37490#comment-1063832 This is very helpful and insightful. It reminds me of something Meister Eckhart said — “the eye with which I see God is the same eye with which God sees me; my eye amd God’s eye are one eye, one seeing, one knowing, one love.” (No type of theistic/metaphysical belief is required to appreciate that)

The solution to a problem is almost always simple. This quote is so true.

I like reading the updates! Keep it up :)
