which way to take?

(Shaolin Master Shi Heng Yi, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4-079YIasck%5D


prevent you from going ahead,

the five hindrances describing states of the mind

in which it becomes very hard

to see clearly and engage in the right decission

KAMACCHANDA .. sensual mind .. arisies if you pay attention that gives you a positive emotion (five gates of your body = seeing, hearing, smelling, tasting, feeling) .. temptation turns into obsession
BYAPADA .. negative mind .. dislike leads to rejection
THINAMIDDHA .. BYAPADA .. slothful mind .. dulness of mind
UDDHACCA .. unsettled mind .. restlesness .. worrying about future, traveling in past, judging .. monkey mind .. not staying at the present .. because of this: there is no time to see clearly
VICIKICCHA .. skeptical doubt .. getting lost in thoughts, what if’s, unsynchronized with actions

align and structure your life
in a way
to prevent these hindrances
from arising or use techniques to remove them

Recognize .. what you are in
Accept .. acknowledge the way it is
Investigate .. questioning
Non-Identity .. practice „I’m not my body.“ „I’m not my mind.“ „I’m not my emotion.“ 无身,无心,无念

there are 2 mistakes along the way to mastery
Not starting
Not going all the way

unique means not to copy
mastering yourself means bring meaning and value to your live
