Path Work

On the Path

There is always some Work

 

HKD

 

It is quite a distance from the house I live in to the road.

This time Julia is warming up by shovelling snow.

If psychology is of interest:

The energy of action is Alpha – activity

The energy of slowdown is Beta – passivity.

I can be motivated to be active in different manners – A1 – A5.

For example: A1 motivates to rule, A2 to teach, A3 to deal, A4 to fight, A5 to think.

To do a work like this – to fight against the snow – I need A4.

 

HKD

 

If I would express the work she is doing in my terms: in this very moment she is motivated by A4 and B2, because she was not in a hurry but did shovel very serene – in a meditative mood. That means she is balanced.

I love doing work in a mood like this because the work is more like a play. If I do not resist, but be in inner peace, I am in harmony with uncomfortable situations like bad weather.

The energy of B2 gives all action a peaceful touch.

If B2 is predominant, I would not leave the house to do anything. Pure B2 is paralyzing and an extreme like total action or a forest fire – A4.

  

HKD

 

Es kommt stets auf die Auslalanciertheit der Kräfte an.

Ein Gleichgewicht zwischen Alpha und Beta kommt dem Gleichgewicht zwischen Yin und Yang gleich. Pure Harmonie.

Das Leben kommt in die Schwebe.

Diese Sichtweise kommt dem mittleren Pfad gleich, der vom Buddha empfohlen wird.

Von meinem Standpunkt aus ist diese buddhistische Weisheit unbedingt zutreffend. Die Vereiigung der Gegensätze im Bewusstsein ist ein korrekter Hinweis auf dem Pfad zum inneren Frieden und Glück.
