Two Chalks

Master showed us a small chalk, less than one inch long, and asked, ‘Is it small?’

Of course.

Then he showed a little longer chalk compared to the previous one, almost one and a half inches long, and asked, ‘Is it also the small?’

‘No. It’s bigger’ people say.

‘Actually, both chalks are in or with their length. They are not competitors to prove themselves smaller or bigger than the other. It’s our mind which is comparing them’ I said.
I am also not in any competition or race. I am not to defeat anyone. I compare things in far-near, black-white, wheatish-brown.. to use common sense not to look-down anyone, anything. When I am compared with people – they are rich, they have bought their homes, they have cars.. – I am put into the race in which I never wanted to be. I don’t compare that – do they know Tai Chi? They did theatre? They know meditation skils? ..but yes, money, which was a medium to ease exchange things but has become main cause for all kinds of Evils, is necessary. And I am not good to have it.
Both of the chalks never even have the idea what human beings were talking about them. Chalks do not have consciousness, life.

We human beings are cursed to have comparing mind.

Master Knows

Ta – What are Doors to receive informations from outside world?
Wo – Doors for getting information from outside world are –

Eyes

Ears

Nose

Tongue

Skin

Chinese philosophy doesn’t include Skin in Five Senses. Rather they accept Consciousness, Intellect, Ability to Judge Right and Wrong. Indian philosophies recognize it as Sixth Sense. Western people misunderstand it with Intuitions. Dreams, Imaginations, Hypothesis, are not the main controller, the Master. All Indian philosophies even Charwaka accepted Sixth Sense as Swa Vivek, Intellect.
Ta – The Master, seems helpless, handicapped without Senses.
Wo – Here I have something not clear for me. Of course, without Senses, the Master is helpless to receive informations from outside world. But we should know that the Master knows everything. It may know something without Senses. It may also know something which is beyond the limits of our senses.
Ta – What is not clear in that.
Wo – Master seems, handicapped without Senses. But it also seems knowing all senses jobs too. Maybe your eyes cannot see something but The Master knows and informs you.
Ta – Intuitions?
Wo – It’s misunderstood with that, I have already said above.
Ta – If they don’t accept skin, or touch as a sense, how do they get information about hot and cold?
Wo – Actually, Chinese ancient people assumed that Eyebrows are the fifth sense. But it was wrong. South Asian philosophers believe skin as one of five senses are also wrong. It’s the Master who knows everything. He feels that hot or cold. He is the one who receives informations, analysis, synthesis and orders too.
Ta – Is that like Jeeva in Jain Philosophy?
Wo – Jeeva also has similarities with consciousness. Jeeva is a mixted concept of onsciousness, atman, Intellect, praana. Master is similar but not that.
Ta – Is that always in heaven?
Wo – No. There are different levels of mind. The heart experiences different feelings emerged by information from outside world or thoughts. If experiences are because of thoughts, that also either from inside or outside world. If Master is stronger than senses, it’s in heaven. If senses are out of control, or Master is under influence of one or more senses, it  definitely experiences the hall.
Ta – Seems that heaven and hell are state of mind.
Wo – All heaven and hell we read in books are imagination by our ancient people. It’s their way to tell us what and how they thought about results of good and bad.
Ta – Good and Bad also can be just results of our mind. One doesn’t like to chew tobacco and other likea to chew and smok it.
Wo – Result decides.
Ta – Is there always Cause-Action-Result ?
Wo – Sometimes it’s opposite of it and sometimes all three are at the same time.
Ta – Where is Master here? Doer, the one creating Causes or the one who experiences the Result?
Wo – The one, who observes the chain, without getting involved in process.

Helping Is Possible On Same Level. 

You cannot help them until their minds are ready to get your help.

You cannot ask them – ‘May I help you?’

You will be ignored.

If they need your help but are hesitant, will not ask you to help them.

You know they are hesitant but they need your help, you can’t go ahead to help them.

They’re hesitant but they need your help, you ask ‘May I help you?’ Their ego may get hurt.
Helping is between two or more people on equal level of understanding. A master and disciple are on same level of understanding only then they can exchange and communicate successfully. Master is no one but an having more experience and practice than disciple.
No-one is upper or lower, senior or junior. We all are same. Our mind in third level is almost blind and caged inside own boundaries. They cannot listen you properly if you are trying to solve their problem. Mind is not ready to allow your words to reach it.
Most of us are living like this.

We need help.

We cannot ask for help.

We can help.

We do not help.

We get hurt if one asks to help.

We wait for them to ask for help.

We keep ourselves on different levels.

– If they need help, they should ask for help.

– I can help, but why do I?

– I’m able to help means I’m higher.

– If I ask for help, I will be considered lower.

– ..
Still, you can’t help.

You are asked – ‘How to download this song?’

You know, but to clarify the question you ask – ‘Video or Audio?’

Your clarifying question is ignored and you see them suffering but you cannot help them. You could have help them and song would be downloaded within a minute but you see them suffering and still you cannot help.

— different levels of minds.

Three Lines Of Encouragement!

You can do!

You are nice!!

I will help you!!!
— These three lines I learned yesterday in Tao Class. It was regular Thursday class but DCS was here for her casual visit. She talked about so many things. I like to listen DCS because their topics are relevant. Unlike other religious gurus they talk about normal things and their speeches are not preaching. DCS are normal people with better understanding. This DCS is one who helped me to getting the treasures so I like her a bit more than others.
One has to be ready to accept their failure as well as success, politely. I will give me 70-80% out of 100 for this. I see my mind is not so polite to see things equally. I’m working for it and I should help others to get that simplicity. Though everyone of us is different, we are same inside. When our emotions and thoughts are wiped out, cleaned, we all are same – no comparisons are there.
Duality helps to understand outer world. It also leads mind to total mess if it gets attached with things. Hosh is there at front, but mind is not always there. The highest, purest level is near and possible for everyone to reach there. Just need is to encourage them with three lines —
You can do!

You are nice!!

I will help you!!!
I may not have money to help financially. I may not be having that understanding, to solve their problems. I can, at least, encourage them to get forward.
— for what?
Either it’s matter of psychological spiritual matter or worldly affairs, three lines are great encouragement.

I’m not going to search them but would be ready to encourage who comes to me. It all should be left on circumstances. I politely accept that my Boat is Small.

Presence Of Mind!

In a store in US, a man asked for 1/2 kg of butter.
The salesperson, a young boy, said that only 1kg packs were available in the Store, but the man insisted on buying only 1/2 kg.
So the boy went inside to the manager’s room and said “An idiot outside wants to buy only 1/2 kg of butter”.
To his surprise, the customer was standing right behind him.
So the boy added immediately, “And this gentleman wants to buy the other half”.
After the customer left, the manager said “You have saved your position by being clever enough at the right time. Where do you come from?”
To this the boy said, “I come from Brazil. The place consists of only prostitutes and football players!”
The manager replied coldly, “My wife is also from Brazil!!”.
To this the boy asked excitedly, “Oh yeah? Which team does she play for?” 
Moral:

Presence of mind helps, never Panic, there’s always a solution!

Be an Observer not a Thinker! 

It is the same way he was on yesterday but he is not the same person. He was a normal person yesterday, ignorant of his own thoughts and emotions. Now, he is aware! And when he reached on her doorstep, he was thoughtless but awakened. Buddha said – ‘See inside and don’t do anything. Remember! Each thought must be under your observation. No thought may pass without your permission. Just remember that.’
He stepped on her doorsteps. He was able to see his own breathings. He could see all movements of his hands, legs, everything. He was having lunch and feeling it was someone else he was feeding to.
When you become an observer, you will be in duality. This duality is not an illusion or hallucination. It is the last step of detachment. You will see yourself acting speaking doing all things and you are also another person at the same time. Doer and Observer! Both are different but same as well.
He had finished his food but it was someone else who was having food and he was just an observer. They say – ‘You are the observer not the doer.’
He was shocked. He came back to Buddha with divine happiness in his heart.
If you are aware then there is no thought. If you see inside yourself as an observer, you may have emotions but no thoughts. Thoughts are secondary, emotions are primary result. The time, when you are free from thoughts but awakened about emotions and aware about breathing, movements, ..You will clearly see Doer and Observer are different.
‘That is the Sutra’ Buddha says, ‘one who is fine to see this, is able to be a Bodhisattwa!’
Remember!

BE an Observer of Thoughts not Thinker!!
