Buddhadharma : Summer 2019
THICH NHAT HANH 65 Although our seed of mindfulness may be weak, it can grow quickly if we practice doing things mindfully. In order to grow, mindfulness needs nourishment. We all have seeds of mindful ness, lovingkindness, understanding, and joy in us. These seeds can become beautiful flowers if we can learn how to transform the garbage of our hatred, discrimination, despair, and anger. By look ing deeply into the nature of suffering and transforming the energy of suffering in us, we can help the energy of happiness and peace to manifest. interBeing 43 Don’t run away from birth and death. Just look deeply into your mental formations. When the true nature of interdependence is seen, The truth of interbeing is realized. This is the conclusion of the previous verse. Nobirth and no death lie right in the heart of birth and death. As long as we run away from birth and death, from suffering, we will never reach the realm of birthlessness and deathlessness. When we stop and look deeply into our mental formations, our notions of self and other, birth and death, ignorance and awakening, then we see their true selfnature of interdependence. That is interbeing. In order to look deeply, however, we need the energy of mindful ness. Mindfulness is like a generator that produces electricity. From the electricity created by the generator comes light, the energy of heat for cooking, and many other benefits. We need to practice in a way that produces the power of mindfulness in our daily life. When we live mindfully, observing deeply what is in us and around us, we realize the nature of interdependent coarising, the interpenetration of all things.
