Recently, Ajahn Brahm celebrated his 60th birthday. I really hope that I have the good fortune to listen to him for many years to come. I have been to many talks, and it is rare to find a teacher as good as Ajahn Brahm.
Below are some of my take-ways:
- Put the cup (worry) down and be Still
- During meditation:
Let go of things that make you move -
The Past and The Future.
-We miss out a lot of things in life because we are moving too fast.
Be Still and appreciate the beauty around you.
-Stillness is the medicine we are looking for.
-When people shout at you, give yourself 5 seconds of Silence before you react.
- When surrounded by enemy. Drink a Tea.
Life is always changing
- In Silence, you see more.
