Blue Sky Mind – The Wisdom of Dependent Relationship
An essential ingredient for daily happiness and harmony is inner peace. We all have the potential to experience this inner peace but it often eludes us due to our negative minds. Our mind is like a blue sky and our negative thoughts are like dark clouds that obstruct the clarity of our mind.
Just as clouds are not an intrinsic part of our mind, so negativity like stress, anger, and jealousy are not an intrinsic part of our mind. Negative minds have no power from their own side to remain. They are impermanent, like clouds, and they depend upon different causes and conditions – causes and conditions we can learn to identify and control.
In his teachings on dependent relationship Buddha taught six specific causes that give power to our negative minds. On this Friday Night Lecture we will explore these six causes and how we can use our understanding to take practical steps in our daily life to dissolve negativity and keep a light heart & a peaceful mind.
This course is followed on Saturday 17th February by the “The Wheel of Life – A design for our life”
