The 3 Ds ~ May 2

Buddha Moon

Detachment, Dispassion, Discrimination

The secret of health for both mind and body is not to mourn for
the past, worry about the future, or anticipate troubles but to
live in the present moment wisely and earnestly.

- Buddha

The Buddha’s Zen nature is based on maintaining a relatively neutral point of view, wherein higher mind is used to think creatively.

Through detachment man learns to withdraw his interest and his consciousness from the things of the senses, and to turn a deaf ear to the calls of the lower nature. Detachment imposes a new rhythm upon the man. Through learning the lesson of dispassion he becomes immune to the suffering of the lower nature as he detaches his interest from secondary things and the non-essentials, and centres it upon the higher realities. Through the practice of discrimination the mind learns to select the good, the beautiful and the true. These three practices, leading to a changed attitude towards life and reality, will, when held sanely, bring in the rule of wisdom and prepare the disciple for the Christ life.
