Nurturing Compassion

Shi Yao Hai/ January 28, 2017/ Consciousness Growth, Love and Understanding, Understanding Mind/ 2 comments

The whole world is in need of compassion. The whole world desperately needs compassion unconditionally and without limits… In Buddhism, we are taught that being unconditionally compassionate requires living from a mind that no longer has any reasons for personal differentiation. When a person has a reason to think personally, emotionally and dualistically about anything in terms of right-wrong, good-bad, special-not special, desirable-not desirable, they separate themselves from all others, from the energy of compassion and the Living

Tears of Love

Shi Yao Hai/ January 14, 2017/ Consciousness Growth, Healing, Love and Understanding/ 2 comments

In the last post, we talked about healing with Life Force energy. Another way of looking at this is developing loving consciousness. Loving consciousness is not dependent upon circumstances. It is a choice. A choice that when lived fully, frees the heart from all manner of stress and distress. In Buddha’s teaching loving consciousness is composed of the four sublime attributes: compassion, loving kindness, appreciative joy, and equanimity. These are the four types of love, and four ways

Healing with Life Force Energy

Shi Yao Hai/ January 6, 2017/ Consciousness Growth, Healing, Love and Understanding/ 0 comments

We were walking to the park, Shi Mai Ping and I. Shi Mai Ping was a long-time student of Shi Chien Li (my Buddhist Healing and Dhamma teacher). She was a great healer and teacher in her own right. As I already had a root teacher, Shi Mai Ping was more of a good friend and was a very senior student to me. Shi Mai Ping was expert at creating and transferring energy and a superb person to

Regarding Love

Shi Yao Hai/ December 18, 2016/ Consciousness Growth, Love and Understanding/ 0 comments

“Love gives naught but itself and takes naught but from itself. Love possesses not, nor would it be possessed; for Love is sufficient unto Love. When you love you should not say ‘God (Love) is in my heart,’ but rather, ‘I am in the heart of God (Love).’” – the Prophet by Kahlil Gibran Love is not a getting of “what you need to get,” in order to validate your own sense of worth. Love is not something

What is Spiritual?

Shi Yao Hai/ December 3, 2016/ Consciousness Growth, Happiness, Love and Understanding, Understanding Mind/ 0 comments

Before we begin to examine spiritual, we must address a common mental resistance to the term. Some people have a negative reaction to words such as spiritual, God, religion, etcetera. In truth, it is never the word that elicits emotional or egoistic reactions. It is the way the listener defines the word. Often these “negative” definitions elicit a reaction that closes the mind to all further hearing. First, thoughts preemptively decide what words (like spiritual) mean, followed immediately

Transcendence – Another Way to Happiness

Shi Yao Hai/ November 28, 2016/ Consciousness Growth, Happiness, Love and Understanding, Understanding Mind/ 0 comments

There is another way to happiness, outside of the 3 we have already discussed. This, Abraham Maslow calls transcendence. By removing all personal views and living from the removal of all biases, one reaches a state of clear mindedness. This level of understanding and way of viewing life is called realization. One enters the realm of clarity as to what is truly valuable and real. All limits of a personal to me view, all of what “is supposed
