Are you winning the battle within your mind?

Patience matters. Whether you are a parent, a teacher, a manager or anyone who deals with people, you need to know how to respond skillfully and peacefully to provocation. We will learn an inner technology called the four siddhis that will help us become more effective when others are angry, unreasonable or stubborn. These striking manifestations of wisdom are expressed in Buddhist art, ritual and practice. Becoming familiar with and practicing these methods will help us to become more peaceful with ourself and effective in dealing with others.

    Great class this week:-) Please try to remember to Recognize, Reduce, and Abandon any deluded states of mind such as anger, jealousy or resentment. Try to maintain mindfulness, alertness and consciousness in and out of meditation and notice the difference in your practice of patience.
    Looking forward to seeing you all next week:-)
    Fondly, Dechok

    Tonight was my fourth time at this meeting and once again it didn't disappoint. I look forward to each week and find myself thinking about and using what I hear at the meditation during the week. It has made me so much more aware and a little less on auto pilot. The time goes so fast that I leave wanting more.

    I am so sorry for the short notice, but I am going to have to cancel for this evening because I am feeling quite fatigued.

    When was the last time you felt angry?
    Were you loosing your Patience at someone or something? Were you able to recognize it coming, were you able to reduce the feelings that were building inside, and finally were you able to let go of them,
    or did they have you?
    Enjoy this precious moment, and this beautiful day.
    Looking forward to seeing you on Wednesday:-)
    With love, Dechok

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
