The Master of Nebula said: Share the story: The Zen master gave the disciple a glass of water and a mirror. "They are your teachers from now on," said the Buddhist monk. "You should try to learn from them in your life. "The disciple said:" What do I learn from water? "The Zen master said:" Learn from water how to face different spaces. By pouring water into containers of different shapes, the water is changed to the shape of the container. The water never complains about the change in space. "
The disciple said, "What do I learn from mirrors? "The Zen master said:" Learn from the mirror how to face different times. The mirror faces different situations, and it is faithfully reflected without omission. The mirror does not count and the situation is good or bad. "
The disciple said, "Why can they do this? "The Zen master said:" Because the water has no self, the mirror is careless. So you don't fall into fantasy and get lost. "
How to treat your work
How should we live? Three points for reference:
Get some rest at work: Everyone has to work. If we feel that work is taking time out, that work is for someone else, and that work is just another bite of rice, then we have to work hard. If we feel connected with ourselves at work, have an interest at work, and show value at work, then the work will not only give us pressure, not a burden, and even in work we can transfer, can recuperate. Wen Yan's "taking a cool in the stool" and Dong Shan's "summer in a hot place" are the highest realm.
Second, in the troubles of Enron: people will inevitably have troubles, most people also use 3,000 troubles to describe the number of troubles. Master Hui Neng(Chinese Buddhist Zen Zen Nanzong) said: "Hui Neng has no tricks, he has a hundred thoughts, and he has a number of thoughts on the situation. How long is Bodhi's work?" In the face of everything in life, he can continue to think like Hui Neng. The so-called soldiers will block and water will cover the ground, so they can not fear trouble. We can have the power in the trouble, not for it around, down, then we can feel at ease.
Simplicity in Complexity: The mind of the human mind is complex, and the triviality of things is also annoying. However, we can simplify and simplify it in complexity. Someone once asked a Zen master: "When reading a classic, what do you do when you encounter a difficult word that you don't understand? "The Zen master replied:" Just look up the dictionary. "In fact, many things do not need to think too much. A capable man, a complex thing he can simplify; People who can't do it often complicate simple things.
Defending bad emotions
In our daily life, we will certainly encounter some personnel, the realm we do not like. When we're unhappy, we're uncomfortable. However, if we can achieve the "three things in life", we can be comfortable when we do not like it, which means that our inner strength is slowly increasing.
Actions taken in the context of emotional instability must be excessive. Excessive actions have a painful price to pay and people regret. Therefore, we must do a good job in the "bad mood flood" defense work, to prevent the most effective.
