如何学放下 How to Learn to Let Go?

Terjemahan Indonesia: Bagaimana Cara Belajar Merelakan?

From Mindfulness – Contemplation of Form [1]:


[--- in the same way, the monk reflects on this very body from the soles of the feet on up, from the crown of the head on down, surrounded by skin and full of various kinds of unclean things:

'In this body there are head hairs, body hairs, nails, teeth, skin, flesh, tendons, bones, bone marrow, kidneys, heart, liver, pleura, spleen, lungs, large intestines, small intestines, gorge, feces, bile, phlegm, pus, blood, sweat, fat, tears, skin-oil, saliva, mucus, fluid in the joints, urine.'

And as he remains thus heedful, ardent, & resolute, any memories & resolves related to the household life are abandoned, and with their abandoning his mind gathers & settles inwardly, grows unified & centered.

This is how a monk develops mindfulness immersed in the body. ---]

[--- From this I realized that no matter how beautiful a person may be while alive,
no matter how attractive or how exquisite she is, so that the more you think about her the more enticing she becomes, nevertheless, once she dies, she will swell up just as grotesquely as anyone else.
She'll get just as green and mottled, and her flesh will break open.
Could you love her then?

Then the blood and filth oozes out, and the corpse starts to stink.
Dogs like it at this stage, but people stay far away from it.

Then the pus and rot forms.
Just thinking about it makes you want to vomit!

It would be impossible to kiss her by this time.
Then the worms grow: big ones and little ones.
The flies and blue-flies come in swarms.
They draw near to her and at that point you wouldn't even get jealous.

The flesh scatters and the bare bones are all that remain.
Then it's burned and the entire thing disappears.

Tell me, where has that beautiful person gone?

Through this contemplation he grew to loathe forms, and came to understand that the nature of all form is unclean.



In the process, you will realised the Impermanence of All Forms!

AND, you need to practice to Perfect this "Skill" in order to reach Enlightenment! :)

In Lamdre, one of the 3 Visions is the Vision of Experiences!

Therefore, you need to put in regularly and diligent efforts to advance in the Cultivation ladder!

No one can do it for you, but a Good and Experienced or Enlightened Guru can guide you along.

THINK: Do you need anyone that dictates to you or force you to Obey & Execute or act out their "vengeances"?

Wake Up!

Realised now why I always advise you to "Listen only to your One & Only Root Guru"?

I am not putting anyone out of "Business", But just telling you the Truth As It Is, if you want to move along the Bodhi Path!

Cheers all.
