We Can Mould Our Mind into any Shape We Like

About the teachings

From Ven Robina  – One scientist a few years ago said that neuroplasticity “is the greatest finding of the twentieth century.” I’m glad we’re catching up with the Buddha who’s been telling us this for quite a while!

If we could have confidence in this, it’d radically change our lives. Right now, instinctively we assume that the anger, the fears, the depression are at the core of our being.

The skill we need to learn is to hear those thoughts and then to change them. But the trouble is we don’t notice what the mind is doing until our body feels it, and that’s too late.

For Buddha, what’s in my mind at this moment is mine, regardless of what triggered it; it’s mine, it’s my jealousy, my love, my compassion. This consciousness is one’s own. Awareness of this gets deeper and deeper and deeper as we go along in our practice. We really learn to own what we think and feel.
And therefore we learn to change it. As Lama Zopa Rinpoche says, “We can mould our mind into any shape we like”.
