War and Failed Relationships

Do not practice war... nor the precursors of war!
Do not practice anger.... nor the precursors of anger!
do not practice irritation.... nor the precursors of irritation!

Instead

Practice peace.. and its cause: contentment
Practice loving kindness.. and its cause: equanimity
Practice joy... and its cause: compassion ~Domo Geshe Rinpoche ~~~





Today is first day of Yogic Healing training here at Joyful Path Meditation and Healing Center. Course runs for more than one year. Healers training from the inside out and the outside in!

Because of our own pain in failed relationships, real empathy is possible to arise. As "experts" in the suffering of heartbreak and damaged relationships, we can relate to the suffering of others in their time of difficulty with others. However, this can only occur when we break free from watching our own suffering. This empathic compassion sees that everyone is suffering at least as much as I am, and perhaps more! This form of compassion destroys inappropriate feelings of superiority and excessive pride! ~ Domo Geshe Rinpoche ~~~

"Es ist möglich durch Deinen eigenen Schmerz über misslungene Beziehungen wahre Empathie zu entwickeln. Als 'Experten' für gebrochene Herzen und kaputte Beziehungen können wir verstehen, wie andere leiden, wenn sie schwierige Zeiten miteinander durchmachen. Dies kann jedoch nur geschehen wenn wir uns von der Betrachtung unseres eigenen Leidens lösen. Dieses empathische Mitgefühl sieht, dass alle mindestens so sehr leiden wie ich, und vielleicht sogar noch mehr! Diese Form von Mitgefühl zerstört unangemessene Gefühle der Überlegenheit und übermäßigen Stolz!" - Domo Geshe Rinpoche ---
