環境保育、倡導社會政策改變、為不平而鳴……。在亂世之中,如何保持平靜澄明的心,不受紛擾牽動?如何擁有穩如泰山的力量去面對重重困難和挑戰?

想一想,甘地先生、曼德拉總統、一行襌師及其同修們,是怎樣做到堅持信念,並且鍥而不捨地對不公不義進行非暴力抗爭的?答案是一顆強壯的內心。

強壯的內心並不能靠健身修練出來;鍛鍊強壯的內心的方法,是靜。平靜,需要合適的環境空間造就嗎?需要100平方呎,還是1000平方呎?不,平靜來自內在。讓心靜如止水一樣,我們內心的污垢才能浮現出來;去除污垢的內心,才有空間注入堅實的能量;唯有心變得徹底的實在,我們才能有力量去創造,去改變。

現代生活節奏急促,有沒有給自己機會:停一停,靜一靜?

綠活地圖邀請心靈環保哲人烏普老師再度來港,主持一系列綠色心靈活動。當你體驗過靜心的力量和學習靜修的智慧過後,你會變得更強更有力量。準備好了嗎,迎接一 個不一樣的自己!

Environmental protection and conservation, advocating policy changes, speaking up against injustice…

how can we keep our heart calm and clear in the face of disturbance and troubles? How can we acquire steady strength to deal with the difficulties and challenages

Think, how did leaders like Mr. Gandhi, President Mandala and Thích Nhất Hạnh  insist on their believes and show great preservance in staging non-violence movement against injustice. The answer is a strong heart.

A strong heart is not acquired by gym training; it is silence that trains up our heart. How to reach silence? Does it require a suitable environment or space? 100 sq feet or 1000 sq feet? NO, silence is from nowhere but within. Let’s bring our heart to a quiet condition as ifit is static water. That would help separate the dirt from our heart, and make space in our heart for energies to fill in and to strengthen our heart. Only when we have a strengthened heart, we can effectively create and make changes.

Have your got tired of the hectic pace of city life? Why don’t you give yourself an opportunity to pause and quiet down?

Wherevergreen will invite  green philosopher Mr. Upul Nishantha Gamage to Hong Kong again to host a series of green, mindfulness activities which will help make you stronger with the strength of silence and wisdom of meditation.

Are you ready for meeting with a different self?
