The way it is…

or should be?

A friend to me: I don´t read you

I: The greatest happiness in life is to be associated with the spirit

Friend: what ?

I: And the greatest misery is to know to much

Friend with a great question mark over his head: but ähh if when…

I: And yet be unable to be detached

Friend is shaking his head  turning around and left the room

To seek...

My mind became loud:

Waves are moving deep sea stays unmoved

Sometimes is to say nothing the best answer…

or body benefits from movement mind from stillness

Wish a happy stillness

The way it is…

“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

JING_QI_SHEN_Kalligraphie

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.

The way it is…

“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… 😉

 

 

How to find a master….(a part of my life story)

was the last phrase of my previous blog. After practicing already for 17 years martial arts and mastering five arts my Sifu (Chinese term for father teacher) entered actually my Dojo/Gym/Kwoon. This is how the places get called where you can learn martial arts. My previous martial arts school name was “Budocan Frankfurt” and was very well known in Germany because of its high level competitors. So how does it come that my Sifu was entering my school ? Much later around two or three years or so Sifu (Grandmaster Wong Kiew Kit) just answered my question about with following phrase:

 Kai thats a easy to answer, if the student is ready the master appear.

 

It sounds a bit strange but what to do if the master say so. But actually I was looking i.e. searching for thus strange not explainable spiritual experiences. Now after over twenty years walking the Shaolin arts path who Sifu learned me it becomes more and more clear. I was searching by heart not by intellect. This was also the reason why I was all together more then five years traveling to Asia to search for a real master. For me a real master is more then one who master only the external art i.e. method/ technique. From the so called external masters I had already the best for my practice art. I still respect them all from my heart because they were showing, leading and educated me very well until I was ready for the complete art. What it mean complete art?, a combination of practical, energy and mind/spirit. But about this I gonna talk in a other blog later.

Ok five years searching by traveling Asia and finding nothing what I was looking for. Visiting martial arts schools all over from Shaolin Monastery to other Kung Fu schools 1,5 years in China. Later Malaysia, Indonesia, India, Thailand from country to country from art to art and MA-school to MA-school. But nothing what I was looking, searching or was dreaming about. But what was is it? Actually motivated from books who where writing about the masters from the past who where able perform for me so called “crazy” stuff. And I was sure there are still some around us somehow hidden. This belief was so strong to start my search around the world. I felt it in my heart but could not explain why my belief was so strong. The most friends where thinking at that time now he will get crazy, hahaha, when I was starting traveling and saying good by to them. The questions of my relatives and friends I couldn´t answer. Questions like:” where you going first..”, which you going next…”, do you got an address where we can get in contact with you…., and so on. My standard answer:” I realy don´t know” or  “I gonna start with the transsiberian- train then I will see”

Shaolin Training, Kung Fu, Frankfurt, Qi Gong,Taiji,Taijiquan
Shaolin Training in “Special Chamber” Frankfurt –

Flowing with the clouds thats how I would describe my past action now. I was moving by intuition following the flow of situation and never forgetting what I was searching for. The central theme to my vision (find a real master) was my pilot.

More about is coming soon….
