Recent study says that seeking how to deal with loneliness is interesting. This article shows that in order to figure out how people would react while they are alone. The experiment was designed to let them give themselves an electronic shock. While they doing the experiment at home, most of them at first not to follow up and then while they feel about bored they tend to start the shock. Of course, all the participators would get paid within the experiment. The result gives people that people while they were alone, most of them would find out to stay just alone without cell phone, mobile devices and Internet’s bothering are hardly to bear.
Since many people are seeking their inner peace or their true selves from the busy business society. They might not be able to get through out of the study’s result. However, Chan Meditation participants will not have the result at all. Through the practice, we would not even have the thought of “bored,” all the thoughts would be let go. Our goal is to seek the purification. Once we access the true purification, we can be benefited with joy from inside our heart and fulfillment.
The vernal equinox symbolises spring is already half past. On this day, the sun shines equally on the north and south hemispheres; the day and night is of equal length. From this day on, the day will become longer while the night becomes shorter.
The weather is relatively unstable and can change dramatically during this season. People can easily get sick due to the change in weather. Remember to carry an extra coat with you and stay warm!
The Chan Master mentioned Solar terms are a good time to meditate. It is when the energy between the earth and sky is exchanged. Especially for those who don't feel anything during meditation, try practicing today, when the heaven and earth is 'on your side' (figurative).
Karma doesn't have to be a religious thing, or a life and death issue.
Its just a circle, result of the universe because everything is interconnected.
How many times does something have to happen to you
till you realised it and find the courage to jump out?
The awakening of the insects represents spring is here. Spring thunders begin as new life sprouts. The harsh winter nourished the land the insects within the rocks and holes awaken by the spring thunder. Spring is here!
In this solar term, the farmers are busy planting the sprouts. If there is thunder before this solar term, then it means the rain (weather) will be abnormal and may result in natural disasters.
As the saying goes...「未到驚蟄雷先叫，四十九日暗天打」thunder calling before the awakening of insects means continue anger of the weather. (sorry may not be the best translation...)
Try practicing meditation on this day! It is when the energy between the sky and earth is strong. It will be easier to enter meditation and receive energy of the universe.
