Short Dhamma Talk - Thanissaro Bhikkhu
And get away from all the turmoil the world outside.
But you can't run away from turmoil after all there's turmoil in the human heart too.
Each human heart.
What you have to do is learn how to create a quiet corner in your heart and then carry that with wherever you go.
This is why we meditate.
To find a part of the mind or awareness of the present moment that's separate from the thing it knows.
In the beginning you actually try to make it one with its object.
Make it one with a breath.
Wherever there's breath have there be awareness where there's awareness have to there be breath.
Have them fill the body.
And then as they stay there together for a while, they begin to separate out.
Just like oil and water or vinegar and water.
And put them in one bottle and it as it gets shaken around it gets all mixed up.
But if you're allowed to sit for a wile, these things begin to separate out.
You see that oil is one thing, the water is something else.
It's the same with the mind.
As the breath and the mind stayed together and are still together for quite a while.
You begin to see what the breath is one thing, awareness is something else.
and that awareness doesn't have to be affected by what's going on in the breath, going on in the body, and going on in the world outside.
It can be aware.
It knows it's not that it doesn't know, but has a sense of being separate.
A sense of well-being inside.
The reason we get things all stirred up and mixed up together is because the mind feel the lack inside.
And then goes running around outside trying to fill up the lack.
That shakes up the bottle.
But if you have a sense that the awareness is sufficient.
It's enough in and of itself.
And things don't have to be shaken up.
I guess this is the Buddha pointed out the things in the world are not the problem what's happened.
But the problem is what the mind is doing.

於是你遠離外界的紛擾
然而你卻無法逃離這些動盪,畢竟他也存在於人的內心
每一個人的心
你所需要做的是在心裡創造一個安靜的角落,不論到哪裡都帶著他
這就是為何我們要禪修
找到心的一部分,在認知中分離出覺知
在一開始,你確實要讓他與其對象是合一的
讓他們在呼吸中成一
不論何時呼吸,那裏就有覺知,當你有覺知時,呼吸也所至
讓他充滿全身
而當他們一同安住時,他們就會開始分離
就像油與水 醋與水
把他們放在一個瓶子裡,當被搖晃後他們就會混在一起
但若你讓他靜止一段時間,他們便開始分離
你會看到油在一邊,水在另一邊
這與心是一樣的
當呼吸和心在一起時,當一同靜止一段時間
你會開始看到呼吸是一件事情,而覺知是另一件事
而覺知是不會被呼吸、身體、外在世界發生什麼影響的
他可以保持清醒
他知道他並不是不清楚,而保持一種分離感
我們會把所有事情攪和一起的原因是我們的心感到內在匱乏
於是開始向外搜尋什麼把填補空缺
就是這個搖晃了瓶身
但若你對於知足的覺察
那麼這些事情就不會被搖晃
在自己與內在裡就已充足
他並不需要動搖
我想這就是佛陀所說的,並非是外在世界的問題,
而是問題在於心做了些甚麼
