Meditation for children

I want to share how my friend is a Vipassana Volunteer. And he showed me and moved me. There is even vipassana for children.

My first Vipassana was in England. I had denied it many times, and I wrote and was afraid, lazy, etc. And one day I was in Turkey, and a boy on the train and he spoke to me, and in English. He told me he’s from Greece, he said “I don’t know why I think you should do Vipassana”. Amazing because I had just denied it, applied again, and went. So I recommend it to everyone who feels. And if you have a child , have a look.

I want to share how my friend told me now. He is a Vipassana Volunteer, for many years. And he to showed me and moved me. There is even vipassana for children.

Loads, and peace for all,

In our paths, we try to wake up

Facing the sea is the house that grandma gave me, without telling me, and now it has Buddha in front and Dao.

Since I was little I learned from my grandmother “What you give is no longer yours”. It was because many people still want to control as their own.

Well, my grandmother Lucia was Catholic and my house is changing as she should have imagined.

She is slowly becoming Asian. As soon as she arrived at Dao she is a beautiful cat. Which are the same ones she saw in Burma and Thailand.

And all I went through in Asia was more meditating and doing yoga and suddenly I found Buddhists. Fortunately in Dharamshala I met and took classes with the Dalai Lama and Karmapa.

The Dalai Lama’s first word was “Don’t be Buddhist, respect all religions, respect what’s inside you”

So I started to admire Buddhism and meet so many lamas, and that made me find a way. And so I find great friends who aren’t even close.

And I would look for the right place. And never knew. I would go from every region of the world that I lived and I would always take off and feel trapped
And Buddhism has always stood in my way.

Yesterday I was listening to Lama Dorje and it really touched me. I met him in June, but since those days I have meditated more and my hallucinations have disappeared.

It touched me when a person submitted their question. “Lama, what is the level of compassion? If I already help my brother, if he has no home, and he is very drunk, etc. What do I do? Lam said, “First you did well to help him, don’t judge him. Doing so will help make you more drunk.”

Even he reminded me that I had learned that we should never judge a cat that has done something wrong, because that stimulates the cat’s mind. When we play, always encouraging us to do the same. They can't even speak, but the mind works like a cat. One Lama said that a friend said that we are never alone.

I heard something like that, but I also remembered that a Tibetan once told me “Now if we always want to think that we are alone we are alone in a negative thing. But in fact we are never alone, but we need to free ourselves from ourselves.
As long as we are at peace with ourselves, then we have the path of compassion.” So my house my grandmother gave me and it turned Asian. Buddhas inside and out. And grandma is still inside me, and so many friends. And like the Tibetan lamas, it makes me think of Tara that she is the mother of all Buddhas.

Gratitude to my mother and for her who is even more of my house Tara. And of course I know that everything is impermanent like the sea, and my home is becoming my home, but I know it’s a mandala, like us. Just as the place is our mind.

With love,

Being explosive is easier than being calm

You know I’m explosive, and I always have been. But I’ve been trying to be calm. I’ve even thought about the people I know. And who stayed close to my life.

My dad said it’s because we’re Spain and Italy type. My grandmother Jandira played on several instruments and had her blast. It’s true, but I’ve always been on the run. Or stronger since I got out of it which I disagree with. I was greatly influenced by many teachers and friends from all regions of the world.

But, my mother, my brother, my grandmother Lúcia, my husband André, my first husband Haiko, and several friends are already on the side of the calmer ones. And they’re also from all over the world.

Explosives that talk a lot, that calm people already know how to listen better than we do. And the quiet ones always prefer their inner stuff

Now when I train to stay calm, I sometimes see the explosion of the calm ones and I’m even happy. But it’s hard when they attack us from the inside. And I end up attacking back. So I had thought a lot about cognition.

.

I always talked a lot with my friend Andrey, and he is from Russia and we were doing a PhD at LSE. I remember we talked a lot about cognition.

I know that my beloved teachers Maurice Bloch and Rita Astuti influenced me to question. How do I know that Professor Mustapha took the Decolonize the Mind class.

These days I was calm, as I was training to meditate and keep my mind calm. But one day I went to spend a day of conversations and it was strong. My mind was calm, but a calm person, he would get angry. That’s when I went to record the funny stories, when the person next to him got desperate.

He asked me to delete it, I declined. And it wasn’t even about him in the end. And I wanted not to forget. Well he snatched it out of my hand.

I got angry inside me. I left and when I went to sleep and even got up I went out to write. After all, in the same place I made calm criticisms and couldn’t even sleep.

I started figuring out the laws, then I focused on all the conversations. And he had told me about his psychologist.

Well, at 3 am I wanted to make a review. So I wanted to say that the psychologist, and it was old for many years. I remembered the criticisms I had on my PhD and cognition. It was wonderful and I went to find articles on cognitive psychology and cognitive science. But the past stays in our body.

The next day I had chest pain, cold sore and when I went to see that in addition to that it comes from immunity and emotional. And it’s been days because my body has turned into pain.

.

But today, when I meditated, there was silence. In it, I felt something that came to my mind. It was clear. I learned that in the silent and the pain is all within. And I say explosive knots, it’s easier than calm. Even harder is that explosive nodes don’t see how calm ones don’t forget. But in that inner silence I want to be. It is the place of Peace.

With love,
Jules

Ser explosiva, é mais fácil do que ser calma.

Sabe que sou explosiva, e sempre fui. Mas eu tenho tentado ser calma. Eu tenho até pensado nas pessoas que conheço. E que ficaram perto da minha vida.

Meu pai disse que é porque somos do tipo Espanha e Itália. Minha avó Jandira tocou em vários instrumentos e teve sua explosão. É verdade , mas sempre fui da fuga. Ou mais forte já que saí-o do que discordo. Fui muito influenciada por muitos professores , e amigos de todas as regiões do mundo.

Mas , minha mãe, meu irmão, minha avó Lúcia, meu marido André, meu primeiro marido Haiko, e vários amigos já estão do lado dos mais calmos. E eles também são de varias razoes do mundo.

Explosivos que falam muito , que já os calmos já sabem ouvir melhor do que nós. E os quietos sempre preferem suas coisas internas

Agora quando eu treino pra ficar calma, eu às vezes vejo a explosão dos calmos e fico até feliz. Mas é difícil quando eles nos atacam por dentro. E acabo atacando de volta. Então tinha pensado muito sobre a cognição.

.

Sempre conversei muito con meu amigo Andrey, e ele é da Rússia e estávamos fazendo doutorado na LSE. Lembro que falávamos muito sobre a cognição.

Sei que meus am professores Maurice Bloch e Rita Astuti me influenciaram a questionar. Como sei que Professor Mustapha fez a aula de Descolonizar a mente.

Esses dias eu estava tranquila, pois estava treinando para meditar e manter a mente calma. Mas um dia fui passar um dia de conversas e foi forte. A minha mente estava calma, mas uma pessoa calma, ele ficava bravo. Foi quando fui gravar as histórias engraçadas, quando a pessoa ao lado dele ficou desesperado.

Ele me pediu deletar, eu neguei. E nem era sobre ele no final . E eu queria não esquecer. Bom ele arrancou e da minha mão.

Eu fiquei revoltada dentro de mim. Fui embora e quando fui dormir e até levantei sai para escrever. Afinal mesmo lugar eu fiz criticas calmas e nem consegui dormir.

Comecei a descobrir as leis, depois fui focar em todas as conversas . E ele tinha me dito de seu psicólogo.

Bom, as 3 da manhã queria fazer uma crítica. Então queria dizer que a psicóloga, e era antigas há muitos anos. Lembrei das críticas que eu tinha no meu doutorado e a cognição. Foi maravilhoso e fui achar artigos sobre psicologia cognitiva e ciência cognitiva. Mas o passado fica no nosso corpo.

No dia seguinte fiquei con dor no peito , afta e quando fui ver que além de que vem da imunidade e emocional. E faz dias porque o meu corpo tornou em dor.

.

Mas hoje, quando meditei, houve um silêncio. Nele, senti algo que me veio à mente. Foi claro. Eu aprendi que no silencioso e a que a dor , é tudo dentro. E digo nós explosivos, é mais fácil do que calmo. Ainda mais duro é que nós explosivos não enxergam como os calmos não esquecem. Mas nesse silêncio interno é que eu quero estar . É o lugar da Paz .

Com amor,
Ju

My Friends in the path

Nothing is valued at the moment and nothing is known I went back to meditating.

And according to Dr Rodrigo I saw the result of my new exam. And he told me that there is no new lesion in my brain, you can’t even imagine my happiness.

Like I said, all takedowns have an edge. I hallucinated a lot and the thoughts were the same. In the first Coma I always thought negative, and I thought that people wanted to poison me. In the second I heard voices. And then a voice inside my head turned from outside and walked away from me. I went back to meditating. I forgot. And I was lucky when I spoke to a Tibetan lama and asked what it was. This happened last year. I wondered if it was a spiritual enemy thing and he told me it must be an injury to my brain, that I should meditate. I confess that, for a change, I was disappointed and expected something better. And that had a resolution

Dr Rodrigo told me that he must
Injury related to a part of the brain.

This touched me, after all he thought like Lama GyaLtseng, that it was an injury. Buddhism always respects science.

I told you about me meditating, and that I realize that when I hallucinate it seems to have something to do with when I get nervous and hallucinate and that I meditate it lessens.

I came back my way. In addition to asking for help from nature, I ask to be connected by the energy of my friends.

I ask for contact with my friends that I met by chance and who are on this path.

Then came Sho, the Denise I met in the Dalai Lama’s class, and she introduced me to the lamas in Tibet. Then I met Isabel and when I lived in Peru I went to a lama’s class and she lives in Peru, but she is from Chile.

But this year, I met Lúcia in a Drinkung class in Ubatuba. And the Lama lives in Chile and is from Nepal.

During this contact, I met her meditating with Thalita. And me meditating in front of the sea, and Helena I met and she filmed it and then when I woke up she asked me if I could. She has been days and sent me.

I was so moved, I could see the people who are still in my mind, in my meditation.

In our conversations about so many things. And I felt like we are friends. Nothing is wrong with people who are on the same path. Just like the people who help us and don't even know it. So my friends, I just wanted to give my gratitude. So my friends, meditation is the best gift. We've all done it, even for a few seconds.

With love, Jules

Our anchor is our mind

Life is ironic. And we have to deal with ourself , my friend told me. I always liked to keep watch and in fact, I didn’t even know why I was alive. But now I am present.

Today I saw a message that I wrote la from Asia and said 12 years ago.

“You know when you grow up and people teach you to get tired of strangers? Your first hears it from the parents, then you learn it in political speeches, then the scientists will give you how two evolutionary would have selected the group… things. I try my best to go to the homes of groups we hear are so different from us. Every time you go, over and over, over and over, if you show your best self to be respectable… People know. You obviously always make mistakes and rules to break you obviously because you’re not socialized in that system, but as people are always felt generously when you’re trying and always more generous I’m being weird for those transgressions than for your own. Of course, we are in these situations like children who don’t know. I’ve never felt more than now that strangers are like the kindest people there are. I feel it’s not just about assigning responsibilities. What I mean is this: in many places like things that cannot be responsible for what they do not know about. That’s certainly true, but somehow I feel like we’re kinder to strangers because it’s so easy to be. It is not easy to identify to them a more secret meaning or motivation for a particular action. In fact, I think it’s the people who are close, the ones who let into our deepest, darkest places, who are the most dangerous of all. These hurt you like nothing else. But nevertheless, we must always open up, otherwise what kind of life would we live? “

I think it’s amazing that I’m like this. I miss words, languages ​​as they say my brain exists. But when I read today , and this message also I said ? But in way I am still the same. I still believe in the unknown. I believe that freedom can allow us to be free. Those were close they have their perception of how we are.”Years ago I was rescued by a sweet stranger guy and was a friend of a friend I had met in

This was from a new friend those days, who did more than I could ever ask form. This stranger took me to a doctor, helped me with bureaucratic situations, gave me food and shelter when I needed it most. This stranger gave me the feeling of being at home with mother, brother and sister, dog and cat. And when this stranger finally let go of me as if all this weren’t enough, he gave me a small gift

“It’s no big deal. But it has meaning.”

I open my hands and see a small anchor. I smile.

“You can go on and when you need you can use an anchor. You will find many anchors on your way. I am one for you.”
)

It made me smile. Me and tell him. I’ve lived in so many countries and languages ​​and friends but I don’t remember my friend’s name.

But when I read , what I had said comes in my mind is deep. All the memories, is in our mind and not the brain.

I never have any animal, always thought it was to take away the freedom of the animal. But then came in our house Dao came here in January here.

Since I live in Thailand, and I my friend saw the picture , he told me she was Siamese

Dao does not have a anchor , but she makes me be present. It is even more Ironic because I never want to be in prison a person or an animal. I love birds because they go away .
I did all kinds of Yoga, Tai Chi chuang, Ballet and I aways run away.

But my responsible of companion on yoga and meditate.
I am always about freedom but it is Dao who put me in prison. She wakes me up and then I go back to yoga I mix
with the way she makes her movements I eat when she is going to eat.

Even funny that she comes to my house and she meditate with me. She does not like other cata, nor kill birds. Sometimes I think she would Budhist temples in Thailand. Doe she feals alone with the same? Is it the nature? I guess my friend

Dao is my companion to meditate and she even observe the birds. I’m trying to teach her to eat something differently and kill a bird🙂

But I guess that Dao makes me be more present , she bites on me, my brain was destroy but I say the same
These hurt you like nothing else. But nevertheless, we must always open up, otherwise what kind of life would we live?

But it is our mind that is our anchor. And the way is our meditation.

Love, Jules

Word puts agent in the prison of ourselves.

I was in the kitchen, which is a place I didn’t know. I stayed there for so long.

No cooking, but I know how to talk and learn, I always knew. But the truth is, we don’t even realize the value. Just by cleaning in the kitchen I learned old lessons. But while I was cleaning I got a message from Rafaela. It was a long message but it touched me a lot.

I had sent a question from the Indigenous people, and she responded.

Rafaela is a psychologist, and an anthropologist, she had even seen her as a psychologist in the Amazon.

Marcelo was in Brazil, but Rafaela had gone with the indigenous people, and he went to look for them
in the airport.
Indigenous people have never been to big cities, imagine taking a flight and going to another country. They came to a meeting to pray for the indigenous people and for the world. Rafa was the translator.

In June I met the Kuikuru Indigenous people, and they are from the Xingu region. I know why, she is Marcelo’s wife. He was my teacher and we’ve known each other for years. Marcelo celebrated his birthday in Ubatuba.

I was lucky enough to meet the Kuikuru, but I didn’t have to talk, but to be close. I met 3, they were parents and their son. I am the son who spoke Portuguese.

I don’t question Rafa, but everyone and how Traditions, and translations always change

I reflect on the translation that I always reflect on, we don’t even know what the other meant, and even in the same language.

But as I was in the kitchen and I heard a message that reminded me of Lama Lobsang.

So I was in the kitchen and I was taking classes as Lama Losang, and I was a Lama from Tibet. He said that the kitchen was a place for a psychologist with himself.

Rafa had told me that the indigenous people were shamans. They were meetings of various indigenous peoples of the world.

The shamans who also assisted people with severe trauma. With trauma from wars, rape, trafficking in women, drugs, etc.

She touched me that in addition to the prayer, it was “We must forget our past. Making a new life, knowing in the present.”

That reminded me, when he invited me to go and I was desperate and I was talking, crying and Lama Lobsang said “Let’s sew and he told me to cook

It took hours of cooking, mantra, eating and I had forgotten about my despair. Psalms for a room, Lama Lobsang speaks a word and despair came.

“One word and back to despair. You should even be grateful, because you can do everything. And every time you attack your mind of what once was. You have to be at peace with yourself.”

At the time I thought it made no sense.

We have to get out of our prison of ourselves.

1 Word puts agent in the prison of ourselves.

How can Dao makes me think abount freedom and prison. :)

I who didn’t want to be responsible for anything, but came to Dao. Dao showed up at the house, and we started to leave food, but it wasn’t even close. But when we leave the house because we leave it on Airbnb, and we need to. We left food and went.

But when we left, she was on the engine. Andrew who saw. When we were at André’s parents’ house. How terrified she was of everything. Even more terror was to see the dogs. She stayed a week in the engine.

 It was so hard to pinpoint close.  We didn’t even know she was a female, and we couldn’t even touch her.  She was terrified of us.  I imagine she must have gone from a terrible thing.

 As we have space inside the house, I had already decided that it was better for every 1 to have a room.

.

 That privacy of mine in my room, and André had hers, but Dao also invaded mine 🙂

 Now she got closer to me, she was much more like André but now she was terrified when he went to hold her.  I was just getting advice from friends and more doubts

 But one day Dao jumped on my bed, and I woke up a thousand times.

  André wakes up late, and I love waking up early and when he arrived in Dao, everything changed, she wakes me up.  I wish I woke up André.

 The day Dao stayed in my room and she came into my room and jumped on my bed.

 So I let her out of my bed.

 I thought she should do the natural thing.  As she disappeared I went to call and her name came and she came, and one eye was closed.  I died of pity, and thought she should sleep next to me.  She stayed in bed for a long time.

The next day I left the room locked, and she got angry and sad and well disappeared. She climbed a tree, was going to catch a bird. I didn’t even think she would make it, she’s three months old. We went to try to help, she wanted to get down. She fell and stayed behind the garden

 That day she slept in the other bed, and next to me.  When I woke up and went to pee and when I came back and she jumped on my bed.

 She went to cuddle, but when she turned into a joke, and sometimes she started playing and I said stop, and that I don’t understand anything

 I go to her space and run, and she went there.  Guys it was very funny.  It felt like I entered her space🙂 I never imagined it feels like her territory🙂

 3 days she disappears and comes back.  Even she peed in the room.

  But then when André’s parents came to visit us, they were the dogs.  During the day the Dao was hidden.  It was closed, but at night and it would find me.

 I asked people.

 Some people size me “declare it’s the territory, others think it’s necessary to be a companion because I’ve been out a lot, and also that it can be a problem to talk to the vet

 But what I do know is that everything has changed.  That is, until I have that everything is changing too much.

Since I love freedom, and I know the cat that came to my house. And now that it’s Dao here, I sometimes feel like it’s when both sides are learning from freedom. We both have. How do we both learn we’re spies? Or is it helping us that helps us to get to know each other? Perhaps this search for what freedom must exist within ourselves.

Love, Jules

I am aways for peace, not weapons

I’m always against guns.
But I have many reasons for war that I am against.

I also wonder who is behind this. In Wars, there’s always someone behind it.

In my doctorate, which was at Lse. I had a friend who came from Israel. I had hope for peace for Israel and Palestine.

But today’s topic is Russia and Ukraine. I have a dear friend who was from Lse and came from Russia. He lives in Sweden, but for many years he has not been able to see his mother and grandmother and meet their son.

Andrey was very sad about what is happening in his country and with Ukraine. But in his name he is not part of a war.

In the name of a country, he is destroying Ukraine.

It reminded me of another friend of Lse’s, and he came from Israel.

In Israel you have to go to the army. But his night because he thought it was unfair with the Palestine.

When my friend told me that he had denied to go to the army. He was put in prison inside of Israel.

After one year the army ask him if he would go back to the army. He denied again so he was put in the prison inside of the Palestine. He learned to speak Arabic.

When I told him “you should do this since you speak Hebrew and Arabic, I’m never just learning”. His answer was “why don’t you do it in Brazil about indigenous people?”

Those were harsh words, he’s right, it’s easy to solve the problems of people who are far from us.

I abandoned my doctorate and I still hope for peace. I don’t know how we can solve our problems in my country. And they are huge ones.

All of America, South America that is colonized by Europe. I am of European descent but I also meet indigenous people, but would I give my home?

What can we do? Names of countries, regional countries and religions and weapons do not solve problems.

So again, I’m against wars, army, weapons, but I hope we have to stop destroying. I guess we are not learning from the history of the world.

So, as it stands at the moment, I hope that no Ukrainian creates heat and Russia and means weapons. Even I think it’s cruel that another country has to do it (Help

So at the moment, I know what Andrey feels, Like me in Brasil since they are killing indigenous. I aways admire the indigenous. Even if I am the representation of me.

I know that my friend from Israel steal admire Palestinians he is like me.

But I also have friends who are Palestinians Ukrainians any indigenous.

For me all the problems I related to the world. But I also have friends who came from indigenous country and living in Europe.

I think yes simple and humble people we have comb our mind. I learned from the Tibetans and they taught me a lot.

Before my Comas I was studying international politics . At the time I had hates it and angry.

But I learn a lot from those who had lost from her land. I met Tibetans who still respect China. I had learned from the Vietnamese . In fact in Asia I never heard about anything I wanted to be a weapon.

So who is he fighting to win, oh it’s simple who’s behind is just someone who never realized that the power of money and will is never going to make you win yourself.So me and all my friends, we all have hate and a feeling that we have to justify who we are. I'm still trying to be better, and not be part of Destruction. love compassion and try peace.

Love, Jules
