قسمت اول

THE FIVE SPIRITUAL POWERS
What most people call power Buddhists call cravings.
The five cravings are for wealth, fame, sex, fancy food,
and lots of sleep.
The five powers are
faith, diligence, mindfulness, concentration, and insight.
The five powers are the foundation of real happiness;
they are based on concrete practices we will learn in this
book.

The Power of Faith
The first source of energy is faith. When you have the
energy of faith in you, you are strong. In the Gospel,
Jesus said that people with faith could move mountains.
But the word faith is better translated as “confidence”
and “trust,” because it is about something inside you
and not directed toward something external.

The Power of Diligence
The second kind of power is diligence. You are capable
of coming back to your best and highest self, but you
must maintain this practice. Don’t allow yourself to get
distracted and forget to practice. Practice regularly,
daily, with the support of your family, friends, and
community—this is diligence and discipline.

There are four aspects of diligence. The first is that
when negative emotions haven’t manifested in your
mind, you don’t give them a chance to manifest. In
Buddhist psychology, we describe our
subconscious as
having two layers, two levels. The lower layer is called
store consciousness, and the upper layer is called mind
consciousness. Mind consciousness is our normal,
waking mind; store consciousness is our unconscious
mind.

The second aspect of diligence is calming and
replacing negative seeds that do manifest in your
conscious mind. When a negative seed is triggered—the
seed of despair, the seed of anger, or the seed of
violence—you need to know how to help it stop
manifesting and return to its original form as a seed.
Don’t let it stay too long on the upper level of mind
consciousness, because if it stays a long time, it will
grow stronger and cause a lot of destruction. There are
many ways to calm a negative energy without
suppressing or fighting it. You recognize it, you smile to
it, and you invite something nicer to come up and
replace it; you read some inspiring words, you listen to
a piece of beautiful music, you go somewhere in nature,
or you do some walking meditation.

The third aspect of diligence is to always invite good
seeds to manifest. You know that you have a seed of
love, a seed of forgiveness, a seed of joy, of peace, of
happiness. Learn ways to touch them and help them
manifest. If you live in a good environment, where you
are supported by a loving, healthy community, you have plenty of opportunities to help these positive
seeds manifest.

The fourth aspect of diligence is trying keep a
good mental formation in the living room as long as
possible. We have to nourish it, to keep it in our mind.
If a seed of compassion, a seed of joy, or a seed of
peace in manifesting as a mental formation, it is good for
you, so keep it there, invite it to stay, don’t let it go

The third power is the power of mindfulness.
Mindfulness is the energy of being aware of what is
happening in the present moment. When we have the
energy of mindfulness in us, we are fully present, we
are fully alive, and we live deeply every moment of our
daily life. Whether you are cooking, or washing, or
cleaning, or sitting, or eating, it is a time for you to
generate the energy of mindfulness. And the energy of
mindfulness helps you know what you should do and
what you should not do. It helps you avoid difficulties
and mistakes; it protects you and shines light on all
your daily activities.
Mindfulness is the capacity to recognize things as
they are. When you are mindful, you recognize what is
going on, what is happening in the here and now.
With mindfulness we do not
have to regret the way we have lived. Mindfulness
helps us see and be in touch with our loved ones. It is
the energy that allows us to come back to ourselves, to
be alive and truly happy.

The Power of Concentration
Mindfulness brings about the fourth power, the power
of concentration. When you drink your tea, just drink
your tea. Enjoy drinking your tea. Please don’t drink
your suffering, your despair, your projects. This is very
important. Otherwise you can’t nourish yourself.
There are things that you have seen but not very
clearly. You can use the power of concentration to
experience a breakthrough and see deeply the nature of
what is there. Perhaps you have some difficulty,
depression, fear, or despair, and you want to look
deeply into the nature of your affliction to be able to
transform it. To do this you need a lot of concentration.
Concentration on the nature of impermanence, nonself,
and interbeing can help us realize great breakthroughs
that will bring us the fifth kind of power, insight.

The Power of Insight
Insight, the fifth power, is a sword that painlessly cuts
through all kinds of suffering, including fear, despair,
anger, and discrimination. If you are using your powers
of concentration, insight allows you to fully see what
you are concentrating on. Concentration on
impermanence and nonself leads to the insight of
impermanence and nonself.
Impermanence is not an idea, not a notion, but an
insight. Many of us try desperately to hold on to some
notion of stability or permanence. We become anxious
when we hear the teaching of impermanence. But
impermanence is not just negative; impermanence can be
very positive.
When the Buddha spoke about impermanence, he
was speaking of insight. He was not being pessimistic
but only reminding us that life is precious, that we have
to treasure every moment of life.
When we
begin to touch insight, we are deeply in touch with
reality and there is no longer any fear. There is
compassion. There is acceptance. There is tolerance.
This is why we talk about insight as a kind of
superpower.
All of the first four
powers lead to this fifth superpower. And with insight
.comes a tremendous source of happiness
