[quote="Dave The Seeker"]I was listening to Gelek Rimpoche of Jewel Heart this morning and he talked a bit about this.
In his talk he said we must remove the negativities and nurture the positiveities and tame our minds.
The difficult part of this is our minds are controlled by delusional thoughts.
We see something we like, strive to get it, possibly steal it, and then have control over it. This is greed.
We see something/someone we dislike, this turns to anger and despite, then to hate.
These are two of the of the things we need to remove from our lives to further our paths.
But this is also difficult to do as these things come naturally to our delusional minds.
I know I do my best to overcome these thoughts/feelings and at times it is difficult.
When I stay regular with my meditation, twice a day for 15-20 min each time, things are more easily overcome or delt with.
I am hoping to hear others view on this. Thanks
Seek the fruit of the Bodhi-tree. It cures all ills. But first you have to give up the ways of the world and asceticism.
