Pearls of Wisdom

Georgia Meditation Center 

December 5, 2012 Dhamma Video 

Pearls of Wisdom

After our guided meditation we watch the first part of a dhamma talk given by Robert Mawson to a group of soon to be novices participating in the International Oridination Dhammadayada Program. A 30 day training period to ordain as a novice Buddhist monk, which is offered 4 times throughout the year check out www.ordinationthai.org for more information.

I had meditation members request a copy of this dhamma talk given by Robert Mawson and uploaded the talk to our youtube page. 

Robert Mawson gave some great points that I would like to highlight.

1) Realize the power of your mind, that you have more potential than any human being that has ever lived before you. The only thing that limits you is your mind, your only limited by how you think. You can actually meditate to such a degree that you are no longer are here, there is nothingness. You are one with the whole universe and beyond, and when that happens you can’t feel anything. This is where I'd like to insert that we truly are part of this universe, and when we connect to the center by meditating we are connecting to the universe. When you connect with the universe and become one with it, you cannot feel your own body.

2) Don’t give up on yourselves, don’t ever doubt your inner power. I don’t know how you have talked to yourself, all your lives, but start talking to yourself different from today. Start reminding yourself how powerful you are. When I say powerful I mean it in the best sense of the word, because all of you, each of you has the opportunity when you leave here to make a huge difference in the world, because you are so powerful. And remember when you touch only one life, that person touches someone else live, and  it goes out and it goes onward and with meditation it is like quantum physics it travels at the speed of light. 

3) You all came here seeking something, you came to the right place because this is where you find it. You probably came here seeking yourself trying to find out who you are, remind yourself you are very powerful, because you have a mind, and you know where to place that mind. And you know that this place 2 finger widths above your naval is the most powerful place that your mind can be, and when it is there fantastic things can happen in your life. 

Here is the Video and remember each and every one of us can make a difference!
