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 if it 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?
