„Pain is inevitable suffering is optional“ Buddha
We are alive and we have a body, we do have emotions and we have mind so far so good.
How does it work?
„Mind creates reality“ Buddha
Because of the body mind connection we creating our own personal bodily sensations by just thinking or name situations in positiv or negative or like or dislike. It means you are by your own responsible how you feel, i.g. suffer or happiness.
For example you drinking a good bottle of wine and after while the bottle is half done. Now there are two main internal human thinking actions:
a) Yeah… very good still a half bottle to drink
b) Ohhhhh…only half left
In case a) the body will feel light with good sensations. Because this is how the body is reacting on so called happy feelings.
If the mind becomes negative like in case b) bodily sensation are more heavy and more tensed.
In terms of suffering both can be the same in both cases. In example a) some want to have back this yeah very good feeling sensations and starts craving for it. If that person can´t repeat it suffering starts. In example b) its similar the person do not like so much the created sensations and inner disquiet and starts to suffer because of it.
If you can keep your mind monolog quite means with no assessment you are in a state to enjoy fully alive the wine. You are 100% in the particular moment fully aware and how you experience the external reality within you body. If you are able understand that you are the one who has responsibility how you feel you toward to a more happy live.
It is like it is…mind interpretation can´t see it but is creating sensations. These sensations are creating again your like or dislike. Interrupting that circle means inner peace and happiness.
„Silence isn´t empty it´s full of answers“
But if there are answers where is the silence…is there silence only acoustic or at the mind level or both. The sense organ are such to get into the contact to the external world and because of that they will create a bodily sensation. Mhhh…there are sensations…the normal human is dividing them in like or dislike. If you able to react differently you would be more centered and not to be the mercy of game point anymore.
There are sensations because we are alive. But you can choose how to react to be in contact with the world. If you are able to be at the present moment all the time with all your sense organs but staying without any comments you will find you centered, smiling and happy. Do not follow your internal Facebook manner like or dislike be aware of you all your sensations without internal reactions and you will be happy and fully alive.
Ahhh now I understand:
Silence means no internal comments but if its necessary switch it on but only if there is need for it. Leave the mind empty and quite and use it by purpose not by old habit. Just do not feed your monkey mind.
Have nice sensations… 😉

The „true nature“ what does it mean ? Many time reading it in spirituell books or was hearing it at lectures. Example:
Unless you see your true nature , you shouldn´t go around criticizing the goodness of others
Good and bad are distinct. Cause and effect are clear. All/ most mortals are unaware because of the heaviness of their Karma. They creating their own good and bad as well cause and effect. You can see things positive or negative. Like> the bottle is already half empty > negative or ahh the bottle is still half full > positive. The Zen master is seeing the bottle and ? is just drinking …. Mind creates the reality for us. The meaning of your reality in this examples is the judgement with emotions. And this is not the reality at all, the bottle don´t cares about your positive or negative thoughts or speech. A bottle is a bottle and flower is just a flower and so on. To see and judge makes life positive or negative if you understand this you will come closer to the ultimate truth. Oneness with constant flow in a deep aware state of mind….so be happy… its on youhuhuhu
