Thoughts

Postby kalden yungdrung » Sat Jul 02, 2011 10:49 am

Tashi delek,

Yes thoughts that is what we know and that is the world where the most of the humans are living in, that is the froozen world (of thoughts)

Now we can eliminate those Bagchags by 2 ways like i did understood:

- One let the thoughts dissolve into the Nature where it came out
- One does see the emptiness aspect of those thoughts

The latter seems to eradicate the thoughts with the roots so here is the karma seems to be realy ended.

What kind of method do you prefer in case of eradicating the famous obsstructing thoughts of the:
mind of ego / karmic mind / the secomd mind / the mind of reincarnation / the mind of the wrong self?

Maybe it would be possible for you to give a brief motivation about your made choice?


Best wishes
KY

It is hard tp let go of thoughts when we regard them as important.
So, I slow down, and I see that there is nothing in the thoughts that I need to worry about and nothing to be concerned with.
So this way, I see the thoughts are not very important.
I consider how many thoughts I have had in my whole life!
What happened to them?
They are like the scrapes I got on my knees when I was a child.
Do they matter? Were they very important? Where are they now?
Then I can see my thoughts of today in the same way.
Can you find that very moment when a thought starts or when it ends?

Personally, I try to visualize the different arisings - I separate thoughts and emotions as either naturally-arisen or karmic-created.
Once distinguished, I send the karmic 'distorted defects' to 'stand in the corner' - where I can be aware of them without being influenced by them.
(I find this method works best for me, as I was already aware of 'thought-thought' etc as being different to 'known-thought' etc before begining Buddhist practice due to previous analysis.)
