It is always easier to say thn done.. you and I know it very well right? but at times, no matter how hard it is.. we still have to learn.. for the good of everyone right? Because, what good it is for us to remain status quo ? What do we loss for trying? but in fact, we will gain from learning to change right? This is one interesting email I got from my "brother" which I think I should share with you guys.. hope you all will like it..
「 Hold it up, and keep talking to me. 」
才聽見師父跟我說：「Now you can put it down.」。
There is no need to worry about problems that can be solved,
Problems that can’t be solved, worrying will do no good.
We should be glad when we are “problem- free” yet still be happy when we are troubled…
When tired, just let go of your problems
I’ve meet someone interesting not long ago especially when he asked me to hold on to the ketchup source while talking to him.
We were having normal conversations and listening to his explanations about karma and everything.. There was nothing special until I mentioned to him my personal troubled.. He insisted me to hold up high to the 3 bottles of ketchup source that he just bought while talking to him. Obviously, I can my left hand getting tired with the pass of time. I can’t stop wondering why he asked me to hold on to the 3 bottles of ketchup sauce while talking to him! I putted down the ketchup sauce when my left hand got too tired! But he continue to insist me and said “Hold it up, and keep talking to me.” Why can’t I put such heavy stuff down while talking to him? Won’t it be much more relax talking with him that way? This is what I kept thinking.. After about 15min, when my left hand can no longer support it, I finally heard he said “now you can put it down” He smiles while looking at my face that has thousand questions.
“You do not like to carry heavy stuff while talking to me right? Yet, why do you like to carry you problems while living your life? When your hand is tired, letting it go will made u feel much more relief, y can’t you do the same to your problems? As compared, problems are like ketchup sauce.. It is up to you to hold it on right?”
Interesting experienced right? We can easily let go of something we can see, touch and feel yet it is hard to let go of something that we cannot see with our bare eyes..
If you continue to be stubborn, you will have thousands of burdens to carry on your back,
Learn to let go, you will learn to live freely.
