Mr. Nils Horn, its not good to say "Thank you" if it is not meant. How told you that it is my opinion? How told you that not the oracle is telling you that? What helps people? Drugs help them most, or? Or a new t-shirt. From Buddhas view, there is only one way to get awaken. And such as oracle can not be found. Of cause, most people just pray, of cause. If they knew they would not.
I always say what I mean. I live in the truth. That is one of my main principles. If you write something, I think that is your opinion. It is an important question what helps people. Drugs don't help people. They make them ill. A new t-shirt is the path of outer pleasure. It is the path of attachment. Buddha says that attachment leads to suffering. From Buddhas view enlightenment, inner peace and happiness is the wise way of life. To get enlightenment we have to follow the eightfold path including meditation and thought work. Playing with an oracle is a way of thought work. You train right thinking and positive qualities. You think about yourself. You find your way of truth. For many people oracles are very helpful on their spiritual path.

The Five Building Blocks of Health

The five most important building blocks of health are healthy nourishment, to avoid harmful substances, regular exercise, enough rest and positive thinking. We can integrate this easily into our daily lives if we want to. The five building blocks of health give us a long, healthy and happy life. If we live according to these rules, we can avoid most illness. If we get sick anyway, we’ll get healthy again faster.

1. Eat healthy. It is recommended to eat very little or no meat and that the diet comprise half raw fruits and vegetables.

2. Avoid harmful substances. Drugs, smoking and alcohol cause illness and shorten one’s life.

3. Get enough exercise. Once or twice a day a half an hour to one hour of cardio-exercise keeps the body strong ang healthy. If you can’t do anything else, a half an hour on a treadmill or dynamic yoga is ok, and if you don’t have any time otherwise, exercise an hour on the weekend.

4. Relax. Stress is bad for the health. Stress should be worked out through rest, yoga or meditation. It is important to have the right amount of activity and rest in life to facilitate inner happiness.

5. Think positive. Avoid stressful thoughts. Positive thoughts lead to positive feelings and a happy life. Motivate yourself with positive sentences and images. Read positive books and have a positive task or hobby. Have a positive way of dealing with other people.

Quote from Welt online (May 2011): “Those who eat healthy can hope to live 20 years longer”, says the nutrition scientist Michael Ristow (from Jena, Germany). Quote from Focus online (2008): ”Four simple rules for behavior lengthen life by 14 years: don’t smoke, do exercise, drink only a little alcohol and eat fruits and vegetables. That was reported by British researchers who followed the fate of 20, 000 participants over the age of 45 starting in 1993. The study is the largest experiment relating to nutrition and health that has ever been done. The experiment EPIC (European Prospective Investigation into Cancer and Nutrition) comprises ten European countries.”
May all people be happy. May the world be happy.

Good, so we can agree that the path is one and T-shirts and Oracles are others. Or do you just talk to put your Oracle Coupling into the path and feed on addicted like dealers do usually? There is nothing which does not accrue in this world or on you-tube...

Sadhu!

What for? Better to sell the car or even give it away. Its a matter of livelihood change.

4. Relax. Stress is bad for the health. Stress should be worked out through rest, yoga or meditation. It is important to have the right amount of activity and rest in life to facilitate inner happiness.
Meditation does not have the aim to be happy, that is the drugs aim.

Sadhu! But don't fall into Jesus ways. Maybe you know the sketch with the bus on the end.

If you would know where your healthy food is coming from, you would not quote such. And yes, sickness has reason and that is why the path does not begin with Yoga and Healthy food but with Generosity and Precepts, valued Mr. Nils Horn.

I believe, that there are enlightened masters, who can hear us and help us from a higher dimension. Praying is helpful. I believe, that they can lead us through oracles.

No body leads you anywhere. You might listen if wise speak, discern it, and follow it or not. There are no such as oracles for the way to liberation. Don't wast you time Mr. Nils Horn. And prayings in a means or "please help" is nonsense as well.
Just because you had asked about this, this was sad.
Thank you for your comment. This is your opinion. I have another opinion. Oracles are very helpful on the spiritual way for me and many other people. Most people of the world work with praying. Buddha did meditation with his body and got enlightenment. In Yoga you awaken through body exercises the kundalini and come to enlightenment. The body is a helpful instrument. There are many spiritual ways.

Hi Nils,
I appreciate your opinion and your gentle manner in response to Provider  :anjali:
Prayer and Yoga have been studied and proven to be beneficial to people that practice them.
As well there is a long tradition of learning from celestial beings in Tibetan Buddhism.

Unfortunately it appears that Provider has little respect for the opinions of others and seems to want to start arguments.

Nils: Things are not so easy. Buddha taught the middle way between extreme ascetic and worldly pleasure. Some joy can help us on the spiritual path. Like oracles ;-)

Live a spiritual life. Success. Think positively, act positively. Connect with Buddha every day. Then your life is blessed.

Paradise Meditation

Body = We concentrate on the body and calm the mind. We sense the legs and feet. We let light circle our legs and feet. We think the word “light” as a mantra. We let light circulate through our arms and hands. We think “light”. We concentrate on the head, let light circulate around the head and think the mantra “light”. We surround the whole body with light and think “light”. Then we relax.

Energy cloud = We begin our ascent to heaven. First we go into the astral world and become spirits. We visualize a cloud of energy around the body. We are this cloud. We concentrate on the cloud and not the body. Then we let go of the body. We repeat the mantra: “I am a cloud. I am a soul. I am independent of the body.” We repeat the mantra until we feel ourselves as the cloud around the body.

Stars = We visualize the cosmos around us full of stars. Our soul can go anywhere it wants. We meditate on the cosmos. We think the mantra “stars”. We make circles with the arms until we feel one with the cosmos. Then we feel good and secure in the order of the cosmos.

World of positive souls = We reach the highest astral world, that is beyond the material cosmos. That is the world of the positive souls. We become positive. We consider the positive points in life. We think the mantra: “Positive in my life is…” We count all of the positive things until we become positive of mind.

World of happy souls = Above the world of positive souls there is the world of happy souls. (Bodhisattvas). We are now in the paradise of Amitabha. We imagine that all of our wishes have been fulfilled. Which wishes do you have? Become aware of your wishes. Fulfill them or let go of them. Find your point of enough. Don’t go beyond that. Reach satisfaction with yourself and your life. “My way of satisfaction is…”

World of Buddhas = Above the world of happy souls is the world of Buddhas. We visualize ourselves as Buddhas of light or Goddesses of love. We wish for a happy world. We move the hand in a blessing and think: “I send light to.. (count all your people and surround them with light and love). May all people be happy. May the world be happy.”

Great transformation = We continue to move the hand in a blessing. We fill the entire cosmos with love and light. We stream light into the area of suffering. We send light to all suffering beings. We surround them with light and think the mantra: “I send light to..” We think of the problems in our life and send the problems light. We surround them with light and mentally repeat the mantra: “My problems are… I send them light.” We surround the problems with light until we can accept them and integrate them into our lives. We become masters of life, who can stay in the light throughout all life situations.

Seventh heaven = We arrive in the seventh heaven (highest nirvana, formless). We visualize a sun around us full of strong love and happiness energy. We think several times the mantra: “om sun, light, love, peace, happiness.” We fill the soul with light and happiness. We rest in the energy of light, love and happiness.

Enlightened masters = We connect with Buddha and all of the enlightened masters (Buddhas and Bodhisattvas). We rub the palms together in front of the heart chakra, visualize Buddha in the sun of the seventh heaven and think: ”Om Buddha. Om inner wisdom. Please guide and help me on my way.” We feel connected with Buddha and all of the enlightened masters. We sense how the energy of the mantra of Buddha flows into us and fulfills us.

Come back = We move the feet. We stretch and relax. We are then back on earth and back to our lives. Take the path of wisdom and love. Proceed with optimism.

Proceed on the narrow path of what is right. Success. Use a lot of inner sense to go through the day. Stick to the narrow path that balances between doing too much and not doing enough. Avoid too much activity, but avoid laziness. Don’t use up all your energy. Proceed slowly. Take a lot of breaks. Be a Buddha of peace and calm. Stop action if you notice you are using up your energy. If you start to feel uneasy and you feel like you can’t go on, take a breake. Meditate, practice yoga, take a walk, relax while lying down or sitting. Feel out exactly how long the break should be. When do you feel better? When do you start feel like doing something again? Then act again. Feel it out the entire day so you know when to take a break and when it is time for activity. Feel out just how intense your activity should be.


Laotse


Laotse lived 1600 BC. His greatest fear was to do too much. Those who do too much, lose their inner happiness. They lose their inner energy to outer activity. Their energy decreases over the years. That is the way to go from inner happiness to inner unhappiness. Most people in the western world live like that. They work too much, think too much, and talk too much. They don’t live in a state of peace and quiet. In old China, people were just as unwise. Even Laotse. He was the leader of the Emperor’s library. He lived only for his career. He used himself up doing too much. The difference between him and other people was he knew exactly what happened. As the leader of the library he had read the texts of the Chinese wisemen. The wisemen recommended a life of peace and calm and inner happiness. They warned of a life of too much activity and outer happiness.

Laotse recognized that he had done exactly what he as a wise person should not have done. He was so shaken by his foolishness that he changed his life dramatically. He took on the motto: ”the wise live by inner fulfillment and not outer appearances.” He sacrificed his carrier and began a life of solitude as a yogi. He wrote a book with the name “Tao te king” where he taught the art of doing little. What does it mean to do nothing? Simply put, it is the principle of a relaxed life. You live in a state of balance between activity and relaxation. You live in the right rhythm of work and rest. At a deeper level, doing little is the most important way to enlightenment. One does so little that the energy turns inward and the tension releases. One can say that you become healthy through peace and quiet. Peace and quiet is the main way to heal inner tension.

Peace and quiet alone leads to laziness, however. Then the inner energy does nothing and healing cannot take place. The great secret is the right amount of rest and activity. The line between the two is thin, and only each individual can decide for him or herself with wisdom and inner sense where this line is drawn. If the border between activity and inactivity is kept and balance maintained, then it means optimal spiritual growth. One does spiritual exercises for a few hours and the body releases tension on its own. Mostly, enlightenment takes place on its own.

This is a difficult path to take. Most people want to follow their neurotic tendencies. Most people are either too lazy or too active. They are either lazy bones or workaholocis. The wise have to fight both tendencies. The way to optimal spiritual growth is a constant effort to fight one’s own neurotic tendencies. Releasing tension means to dissolve inner resistance, often. At best one develops a daily plan with optimal balance between rest and activity and sticks to the plan using inner sense to find what is most effective at the moment.
May all people be happy. May the world be happy.

There once was a sufi master who gave his students an apple with a bad spot and told them: ”this is the paradise apple.” The students concentrated on the bad part and were unhappy. The master saw the whole apple and lived in light. Recognize your world as a paradise and be happy. Everything is fine. Be happy. Go your way happily.

The magic word

There are thoughts in everyone which hinder enlightenment and inner happiness. What is your magic word today? Think your enlightenment word as a mantra and go positively through your day.

1. Standing = We imagine a shower above us. We think the mantra “water” and massage “water” (light, energy) from the head to the toes. We rub tension and stress away. We energize ourselves with positive energy. It is as if we are really under a shower and cleaning ourselves.

2. Bending = We bend over and rub the holy water on the floor around us. We imagine that the floor is charged with positive energy. We draw a circle of healing in a healing color around us. What is your color of healing today (orange, violet, green, brown, pink)? We mentally repeat the name of our healing color as a mantra.

3. Friend = We walk in place and visualize a friend. We say something positive to him? Imagine the sentence really is heard by our friend. Repeat the sentence as a mantra. What does the person say to you?

4. Enemy = We imagine an enemy in front of us. Who do you see as an enemy today? Who is your emotional opponent today? What do you say to this person? Which thoughts help you to achieve inner and outer peace. You can try to understand your opponent. You can develop empathy or wish that things improve. What is your thought of wisdom and love?

5. A sentence for yourself = Examine our own mind. Is there a thought that keeps you from peace, happiness and a life of love? What are your thoughts? Which positive sentences can overcome this? Find your central negative thoughts and overcome them with oppropriate opposite thoughts. We are usually hindered by thoughts relating to a lack of self-discipline, peace (ego sacrifice, acceptance, modesty), wisdom (living from the essence), love (loving all beings), unity (visualizing the self at one with the world) and positivity. “The sentence for myself is…”

Start each day by considering the tasks that lie ahead. Then begin the day. Think positive. Work for the happiness of all beings and take sufficient breaks in between. Exercise (go for walks, do yoga), meditate, and eat healthy. If you live like that, you will develop your inner energy and keep your mind positive.

The future Buddha

Maitreya is regarded as a future Buddha of this world in Buddhist eschatology. In some Buddhist literature, such as the Amitabha Sutra and the Lotus Sutra, he is referred to as Ajita Bodhisattva. Maitreya is a bodhisattva who in the Buddhist tradition is to appear on Earth, achieve complete enlightenment, and teach the pure dharma. The event will take place when the Dharma will have been mostly forgotten on Earth.

It is an art to build up enlightenment energy. It depends on using the correct techniques at the right moment. It depends on finding the right way for everyone. Too much peace and quiet can make you lazy and dull. Too little leads to a loss of energy. Too much outer enjoyment strengthens attachments. A little outer enjoyment facilitates inner happiness. Too much work uses up the energy. Some work gives satisfaction and purpose to life.

There once was a yogi who did his spiritual exercises intensively for twelve years. He dissolved inner tension, freed himself of his energy blockages and was sometimes in states of bliss. But one day, he ceased to make progress on his spiritual path. His master explained that he used up his energy on his spiritual exercises and hindered lasting enlightenment. After that, the yogi lived in solitude as a nothing. He let go of all of his worldly and spiritual goals. Through this he relaxed deep into his psyche so that he landed in a consciousness dimension of unity. He finally found the correct mixture of calm and activity.
May all people be happy. May the world be happy.

Take the path of inner happiness and all-encompassing love. Become a Goddess of light. Go forward with self- trust. Success.

Goddess Yoga

With goddess yoga, we can quickly come to a life of strength, relaxed mindset, wisdom and love. It is important to maintain contact with the self. We should never just go through the motions. We should use mental pictures and mantras. We should be creative and playful and find our own form of deity yoga.

1. Goddess of Strength = Turn yourself into a goddess of strength. Whatever you take on, you achieve. Yo are a winner. Raise your fists high, shake them, and think the word strength until you feel the Goddess of strength within you.

2. Goddess of Calmness = Sacrifice your ego. Put your hands in your lap. Rub your feet in circles to the right and to the left over the earth and visualize the earth under you and think: ”I let og of my false wishes. I accept suffering in my life. I flow positively with life.“ What do you need to let go of or accept today?

3.The Goddess of Wisdom = What is your thought of wisdom today? Stretch out your pointer finger next to your head and think: “My way of wisdom is… Unwisdom is…”

4. Goddess of Fulfillment = Recognize yourself as a goddess of abundance. Rub your hands in circles on your belly and think the mantra: “The abundance in my life is... I am thankful for…”

5. Goddess of Love = See yourself as a mother to all beings. Consider all of the beings on earth your children. Identify with them. Wish them happiness. You are now a Goddess with giving hands. Bring your hands next to the pelvis, open them in front of you, move them back and forth, visualize all of the beings on earth and send them light: “I send light to all. May all beings on earth be happy.”
May all people be happy. May the world be happy.

Forward on the narrow ridge of correctness. Go with a lot of inner feeling through the day. Live on the fine line between doing too much and doing too little. Avoid the excessive activity and avoid the inertia. Not use up your energy. Go slow. Do a lot of breaks. Walk like a relaxed Buddha through the day. Stop to act immediately if you notice that you loose your energy. Stop acting if restlessness arises, if you are no longer in peace, if you feel that you have worked enough. Then take a break. Meditate, practice yoga, go for a walk or just relax in lying down or sitting. Feel exactly how long the break should be. When are you fully recovered again? When in you arises the desire for activity? Then become activ again. Feel exactly the whole day when it's time for a break and when it's time for an activity. Feel how intense your outer actions have to be. Success.



Just I did http://www.wikihow.com/Become-a-Happy-Buddha

It is good to be happy. There is a way for everybody. Try it. Taste it. Realize it.

#Have self discipline. Do every day your spiritual exercises. Meditate every day at least for five minutes. Find every day your positive sentence, that keeps your mind positive. Do every day your kundalini-exercises. Read every day a little bit in the book of an enlightened master of your religion (Yoga, Buddhism, Christianity). Don't give up. Never.

== Tips ==
*Those who are anchored in spirituality do not need to worry about anything. Everything is fine as it is. The enlightened masters will take care of everything. You are always protected. Stay positive, optimistic and upbeat. Don’t take anything too seriously. Celebrate the day. Eat sweets until you are happy, or doing something else that makes you happy.
*Hotei (Budai) was a zen master. He lived during the Tang dynasty in China. People also called him the laughing Buddha or the happy Chinaman. Hotei was a follower of the art of doing little. He enjoyed the happiness of enlightenment. He lived in happiness consciousness (Sat-Chid-Ananda). He liked to laugh, eat sweets and play with children. Hotei always had a sack with him, full of nice things which he liked to give children. He was popular with all of the children. And the adults loved to spend time around him because his energy made them feel good.
*Hotei came through a village. He was known among the people as the "laughing Buddha" because he always and everywhere laughed. Sometimes, however, he just sat under a tree. So also in this village. And he continued without laughing, eyes closed, under the tree. He did not even have a small smile on his face and was completely calm and collected. Someone asked him, "Hotei, why you are not laughing?" He opened his eyes and said: "I am preparing for it." First awaken your enlightenment energy. Then the big laughter is within you.
*One day Hotei was asked what enlightenment is. He stretched out his arms into the air, laughed happily and disappeared among the people. He lived in happiness and as a nothing. He followed his spontaneous needs. He rejected being a Zen master or having formal teachers. He was just a happy, fat Buddha. That was enough.
May all people be happy. May the world be happy.

Transformation. Build up inner strength through your spiritual exercises. Proceed with optimism.


Nāgārjuna

(c. 150 – c. 250 CE) is widely considered one of the most important Buddhist philosophers after Gautama Buddha. He is the first enlightened buddhist who mentioned the Amitabha mantra as a good technique to reach enlightenment. Nagarjuna practised kundalini yoga and therefore is often shown with the kundalini snake. If we look closely at Amitabha Buddhism, it is a simple form of kundalini yoga. We visualize ourselves as a Buddha and thus awaken the enlightenment energy in us. We visualize our world as a paradise and transform us into an enlightenment consciousness (unity consciousness).

Kundalini yoga has many techniques. If a person has strong energy, then sometimes just a simple gesture activates the kundalini energy. We can hold our hand over the earth or in front of the heart chakra. We can lay the hands on the legs, or in the lap. We can also hold the hands to the sky and thus activate the crown chakra. Kundalini yoga means that the spiritual energy collects in the middle energy channel. Then great strength, peace and joy and an enlightenment consciousness appear.

Look for an inspiring role model for your spiritual way. It doesn’t matter which you chose. It is important that the role model symbolizes enlightenment energy for you. Connect with your role model through meditation, a text (oracle), or through a mantra. Imagine a big sun in front of your crown chakra. In that sun, a Buddha sits. The Buddha is you. The Buddha sees the suffering of the earth and sends light to all beings. Move your hand in a blessing and think: “I send light to... May all people be happy. May the world happy”. Succeed on your spiritual way. Forward.

Buddha Amitabha


"Kyoshin broke off his priest carrier, made a pilgrimage through Japan, stopped somewhere, married, worked and concentrated on his spiritual way. He was anchored in the essence and was otherwise open with life. He flowed with things the way they developed. On the outside he lived simply, and on the inside he was concentrated on paradise. He spoke the Amitabha prayer as if nothing else existed" (Buddhism krass, page 163).

Comment = Kyoshin connected the material life with the spiritual way. He lived in the world, but on the inside in solitude, so he could preserve his energy. He didn’t lose himself in worldly enjoyment. He lived everything and didn’t get attached to anything. Normally worldly life leads to the loss of inner happiness energy. We use ourselves up in works stress. We lose ourselves to worldly attachments and addictions. We forget to practice spiritually and thus lose our true selves. We don’t live in light during life, and thus don’t come to light after death.

How can it succeed to come to enlightenment while living in the world? Buddha said that is hardly possible. For that reason he retreated from the worldly life and became a hermit. However, we can also grow spiritually with a life out in the world. We need to live so that we preserve our spiritual energy. A simple, modest life with a lot of peace and quiet has its advantages. Kyoshin lived as a simple farmer. He repeated his mantra and kept his mind on light. He rejected nothing and became attached to nothing. He used all the occurances of his life as opportunities to grow. He let go of his ego while suffering and practiced a balanced mentality. He enjoyed life, without losing himself in it. He stayed anchored in life.

He let Buddha Amitabha lead him on his way and so reached enlightenment. He lived daily in connection with Buddha (the enlightened masters, God) and heard the voice of his inner wisdom through which Buddha Amitabha lead him. So he could be transformed through the wisdom and energy of Buddha Amitabha. That is the secret of the way of prayer. We don’t need to be hermits. With the power of Buddha Amitabha (the enlightened masters, God) we can also lead a life in the world and come to enlightenment.
May all people be happy. May the world be happy.

Bring joy into your life. What do you need to proceed positively on your journey? Do what you feel like to get through the day. What do you need? What do you feel like doing?

Genza (1842-1930)

is a well-known saint of Shin Buddhism. He lived as a simple farmer, was married and had several children. Despite some difficult turns of fate, he remained happy and positive. He was thankful for everything that came his way. He saw it as help along his spiritual way. He loved to help others and do nice things for them. Because he overcame his ego, he couldn’t tell the difference between what was his and what belonged to others. Once he wanted to put fertilizer on his field, then he noticed his neighbor’s field needed it more, so he fertilized his neighbor’s field.

Enlightenment means healing. Genza was almost never sick. But one day, he slid by the river as he was carrying a load of hay and broke his arm. He praised Buddha Amitabha. Other people wondered at this. Genza explained: “just one arm is broken. I can’t change that. But I still have a second arm. This means I can continue to work. Isn’t that wonderful?”

Through his inner happiness he found himself in another dimension where he could barely feel his suffering. Even when his son and wife died, he remained in a permanent state of happiness. People visited Genza a lot. When they were close by him, they could feel his positive energy. Those who even slightly touched Genza felt the blessing of Buddha Amitabha. One day, Genza was invited to visit by a distant village. As he arrived, people asked him to talk about his enlightenment. Genza explained that there wasn’t anything special to it. “Things are the way they are. That is all.”

He lived in existence, unity and love. He was often asked if he didn’t get frustrated. He told them he didn’t really possess the ability to get aggravated. The aggravation was completely gone, and there was only peace and joy left. His favorite activity was to massage people and tell them about Buddha Amitabha and his paradise. One day he was invited to a temple. He massaged the priests’ feet and transferred enlightenment energy to them. He said “now you can perceive your mission well.” Then he left.

His advice to other people was: “If you are having difficulties, take counsel from Nembutsu.” We should pray to Buddha Amitabha and follow the voice of inner wisdom. Genza reached enlightenment as he loaded his oxen. Then he realized that Buddha Amitabha carries us through life and all we have to do is to trust our lives to Amitabha. We are then always protected and lead. Genza was modest and humble. He never forgot that he was a simple person, a poor person, a nobody. He saw himself in a state of inaction and let the light of Amitabha work through him. He didn’t live through his own power, but through the universe’s power and for this reason always had enough energy.
May all people be happy. May the world be happy.
