The five lines Empty The five lines

Fri Dec 31, 2021 12:05 pm
Dear all, I wonder how you are doing with the five lines? Are you still working with them or did you turn to another practice?
After we finished the course I kept doing audio 5 every day, so all 5 lines. Yesterday I decided to work one by one, to again really take time to start again with only the first line and the first guided practice for some time. I repeat "Vision is mind" a lot of times during the day and I try to look at my projections. For me it feels good to take time to really deepen the lines.

Good post Marijke:

I am working daily with the 5 lines - together with my regular zhine practice. Just now I don't need more.

There is so much in the 5 lines: it is very profound. Easy to say the words, and understand intellectually, but difficult to realise truly.

I am still working with "vision is mind" - "mind is empty".

Continued:

There is so much in the first line. Just now I am working on "vision is mind" - in formal sitting meditation and in everyday life situations

The difficulty is - keeping naked awareness - in the stuff of daily life - in "real" situations - in relationships with family, friends, society etc, - without getting obscured.

Dear Jim, Maybe " naked awareness "are big words for daily life and "awareness" is already a lot!!!

I started with audio 2 today. It feels like a kind of relief to work with the two in stead of only the first line because it feels more natural to me to turn to my mind...

I agree totally with you. I'm also working on the 2 first lines . But sometimes happends, for a not long time, that I have experiences of the others lines. They are fleetings. The dependence on the samsara is so deep!
