Peace

Saying Goodbye to Loneliness

In the countries where statistics are opened, loneliness has killed many people. First of all kill the mind, then kill the heart and the body.

Few who realize, loneliness is not the absence of friends outside, but the absence of friends inside. Especially because of the inner conflicts.

To make you healthy and happy, the earlier you heal the inner conflict the better. For your information, mind can be a source of conflict or peace.

It depends on how skillful you’re in training the mind. If you serve the mind, meaning you follow any movement of mind, then mind bring many conflict.

But if you put mind back as servant, meaning you’re the master, then mind is a source of peace. Practically speaking, simply be a compassionate wtiness.

Imagine you’re standing in the bank of river, and any movement of mind is like the flowing water in the river. No need to reject the negative, no need to attach the positive.

Everything is impermanence. As impermanence as flowing river. As you keep witnessing the mind, the mind is no longer dictate you.

The mind grow wider and wider from a small cup, till one day enlightenment make the mind as wide as space. At that moment, you’ll experience perfect unity.

It’s another name of enlightenment. Everything in this universe become your friends. All beings are here to protect you.

That’s what I mean by saying goodbye to loneliness. Beautiful friend inside invite the coming of good friends outside.

Nothing left after this except beautiful smile. Welcome home beautiful souls.

H.H. Guruji Gede Prama

The journey is then being enriched with his experiences of studying abroad, his meetings with the world greatest spiritual Gurus: His Holiness Dalai Lama, The Venerable Thich Nhat Hanh, as well as Professor Karen Armstrong; and also being deepened by his intense meditation practices.

Despite the fact that he was once a CEO of a large corporation with thousand of employees, and was traveling abroad frequently for the purpose of teaching, yet, being deeply moved by the Bali bombing incident in 2002, he then decided to leave everything and went back to his home island.
He has never leave Bali for the past few years. In fact, he rarely leaves the silence of the forest where he lives, except for the purpose of teaching at the sacred sites within Bali.
