Sometimes you find yourself being on your own. You must be that person that you would like to see more out there in the world. In the Buddhist teaching, it’s very clearly stated, don’t harm any being. If you are practicing the martial arts with the purpose of going out there and harming a lot of people, you change yourself to the better version, to the best version. It doesn’t matter in which situation you’re in.
You can be in a really bad situation. It can seem like that you have two choices. Either you get up somehow and try to stand up to get out of this hole. This is the one possibility. And the second possibility is you just in this way, give up.
I don’t know what other traditions would be teaching you, but now I think the Martian aspects start to come in again. Just don’t give up. Keep going, keep going. And this is how I see it. These are not easy times.
Yeah, but nobody that Qigong to be easy. So I have no options. I have no other choice than to keep going. And sometimes I’m in times where I have many, many supporters and sometimes you find yourself being on your own. But the choice, there is no choice.
I still keep going. All of this must come from yourself. You must be that person that you would like to see more out there in the world. Don’t look for other people to change. First, you change yourself to the better version, to the best version.
And like this, we take influence. The more you actually start to move and use the body. How do you build up a good relationship to your body? You must spend more time with your body. This is how you’re building up a better relationship.
The body talks to you and you can give comments to the body and eventually the body even will listen. So it’s about building up a good relationship between us and our body. Now, once this body awareness reaches a certain level, then the body is going to talk to you, not talking in that sense, but you will know which adjustments to do in order not to hurt or destroy anything on your body. We must pay attention to something which is very fine. This aspect of refinement, this is something that we are also finding, for example, in the practices of the martial arts.
The more time you become with the body, the higher your ability becomes. We also translate it into the refinement of the mind. And so this is one aspect where I see that the martial arts practices and the Buddhist practices can come along very well for other areas. They certainly don’t, because in the Buddhist teaching, it’s very clearly stated, don’t harm any being. Do not harm any beings.
With what type of intention now are you walking out in this world? So if you are practicing the martial arts with the purpose of going out there and harming a lot of people. I think many Masters that would know about this are not going to teach you this type of approach certainly has nothing to do with the Buddhist way of thinking. Thank you all very much for joining this session today. Appreciate your mother.
