Meet Shaolin Master Shi Heng Yi in his serene talk about self-discovery. Learn why rainfall is an essential part of each flowering. And every small step - part of the journey to the highest peek. The hindrances along the way to self-discovery and personal growth are easy to overcome. Learn how from his talk. For more than 30 years, Master Shi Heng Yi has been studying and practicing the interaction between mind and body. His strength is the ability to smoothly combine this knowledge with physical exercises and to practice Martial art -Kung Fu and Qi Gong. He has an academic background but he prefers to live at the Shaolin Temple Europe, Monastery located in Otterberg, Germany. Since 2010 he has been taking care of the settlement and he personifies the sustainable development and spreading the Shaolin culture and philosophy. As a contemporary monk, Master Yi holds a smartphone in the folds of his clothes as he sees no contradiction between living together with ancient knowledge and high technology. “The universal law of being successful and happy at the same time means finding the balance”, says master Yi. And as for flying - yes, he really can do it! He only needs a stick and a little space. We expect him to fly-in and share about the Shaolin way at TEDxVitosha 2020.

5 Hindrances 1. Sensual desire (pleasures & distractions) 2. ill will (negative mind) 3. Slothful body & mind (lack of energy, lack of motivation) 4. Restlessness (worry about the future or regret about the past, unable to stay in the present) 5. Skeptical doubt (indecisiveness) Each of these hindrances is placing a dark cloud on your mind. Solution: Align and structure your life to prevent these hindrances from arising. 4 Steps to remove these Hindrances 1. Recognize (what state of mind you’re in) 2. Accept (accept and allow situations and people to be the way it is/they are) 3. Investigate (your emotional & mental state) - “why did it come up?” “what is the consequence if I remain in that state?” 4. Non identification (practice “I’m not the body, I’m not mind, I’m not my emotion, I can just see all these 3 aspects about me”)

Five hinderance is clearly specified in the sutras, and the ONLY solution, also specified, is four foundations of mindfulness. However, his solution is totally unheard of from Buddhism.

I have been avoiding this video for years, thinking “I don’t want to be lectured or taught something in such a disciplined and cold manner, as the monks go very deep into and make me uncomfortable” but everything this man uttered had a place of good intention and understanding just how difficult this self journey can be if we do not have the right track to go. I stumbled into this video on autoplay while dozing off and I was amazed at how focused this speech was, and how some thing as simple as mountain climbing stories let us know what is happening within our self destructive behaviours. From what I heard, now there is a root for me to make more conscious choices and not identify too strongly with what I experience day-to-day. The first step was admitting it and now I hope to begin my walk on you all and see things clearly.
@miiiiimiiiiiii Yıl önce
It felt like someone came and analyzed my life in the most accurate yet nonjudgmental way. He is very good at speaking about what he has mastered. I have heard some of these things before but what matters is the way it is said and this definitely touched my heart. I too am at the foot of the mountain, asking people about what you see at the peak. I too am restless, my mind is a mess, I'm losing motivation, asking myself if I'll be able to do it, asking myself if I should stop even before starting and I too, feel like I'm locked in a cell; even before starting I feel like giving up. But there's something that wouldn't let me. This video showed me what I was looking for, to climb without thinking where I'll end up the next day, all the way up to the peak, to see for myself how it looks like from there. Also, very impressed by the way he described depression as imprisonment, very accurate.

Almost 14 years ago I participated in a program in the Shaolin temple where he used to live. This guy taught me proper meditation and breathing skills and shared his story with me. Absolutely fantastic person with an unbelievable amount of discipline and a mind which is the strongest I've ever encountered. One time the other 3 guys who were in the temple and I couldn't keep up with him and the monks and we fell behind during the morning routine. As punishment we had to do 500 push ups which sounded completely unreal but he said we won't get to eat unless we finished it. He said all this in a very calm voice and we just did it. He taught me how to achieve anything if you're disciplined and calm enough. 非常谢谢师父!

Words to abide by (goal words), when avoiding the 5 Hindrances (opposites of the 5 Hindrances) 1.) FOCUS OR CHARACTER 2.) POSITIVITY 3.) ACTION 4.) PRESENCE 5.) CLARITY Surrounding these goal mental concepts are: - ALIGNMENT (deep visioning/planning/goal-setting) and - STRUCTURE (manifestation of goals through committed character and daily habits) Steps concerning the mental state, to reach the mindset for the goal words: 1.) Recognition 2.) Acceptance 3.) Investigation 4.) Non-Identification
@jdanderson915 2 yıl önce
Fabulous talk. From beginning to end. direct, clear and concise. He is a master. Clarity of mind and directness of purpose. Five states (hindrances) of the mind to derail your clarity, purpose and path. It can be foggy and unsettled along the journey as well as at the top. Aligning your life and structuring your life to prevent these hindrances will keep you on your true path. Self-knowledge and self-discipline are key. This is where meditation and the natural tendency of the mind to look inward can clarify your journey. Transcendental Meditation will give you peace, clarity and focus to work hard(easily) to your true self. No matter what age. You can be in the moment with clarity of purpose and mind. Your journey to pure awareness, pure conscientiousness starts today.

@@tubomania in case you didn’t get it, the story of the travelers and the mountain is a metaphor to symbolize personal growth, so it’s not a literal mountain. That’s what his whole speech is about. You’re not gonna meet the master or anybody there. He also mentioned 5 hindrances, I think you’re victim to 2-3 of them either a skeptical doubt or negative mind/aversion or both. The master mentioned 2 types of travelers, what he didn’t mention is a 3rd traveler, that’s you 😂😆 Let me put it this way- You have people that work hard to get to where they are at in life to achieve their own goal and overcame the 5 hindrances. Then you also have people that depends on others to achieve that goal. You also have people that think the goal is impossible and doesn’t quite get it and chooses not to have any goal at all. The master’s story is one of many symbolisms. You can apply it to any scenario and the rules still apply. Let me give another one, I have friends that are MD from med school because thy studied hard and didn’t need anyone’s help and wasn’t born with a silver spoon, i also have friends that were sociable and had help in finishing their education via study groups/family/friends support, and then I also have friends that goes “college is not for me” without even trying to apply, “i’m too old to go to school,” or “i’m not smart enough.” Either their negative mind had clouded their judgement or made the decision for them or they’re just too lazy iono. If you don’t care about your personal growth then no1 can help you in that regard because only YOU can do it, it’s personal for a reason. I joked about it all the time to my my wife “huney, can you go pee FOR me?” she was like “what? that’s impossible! Your bladder is full, not mine”😂 Then, the next time chocolate came around, she didn’t save me any, she was like “ughh...I ate it FOR you??” .....🤦‍♂️😆😂 (don’t mess with women) 🤦‍♂️

I learned that I am a master of my own self from watching this. Always have been, learned it all years ago through my own trials. Life has an odd way of allowing you to learn all of this on your own, you just can't let emotion control you; understand that you control it. You have to know that you are not your mind, your mind is a part of you. Your body does not decide how to act based on the two, you control them all simultaneously, forever. You always have... One day I hope, we all may learn this at a younger age...and be thankful for being in such control.

7:52 Clarity: More Clarity - Better Decisions (You can distinguish for yourself which is the proper direction to take, which decisions need to be made) 9:15 The Five Hindrances. Different states of the mind. In those states it is very hard to see clearly and therefore make good decisions. 1. Sensual Desire 9:43 2. Ill Will/Aversion 11:08 3. Dullness/Heaviness 12:16 4. Restlessness 13:13 5. Skeptical Doubt 14:09 15:07 Align and structure your life in such a way to prevent those hindrances from arising. If you’re not successful, you need to use techniques to remove them. Simply remember one thing. Just let it R.A.I.N.. This is a four-step method to help you remove those hindrances. The first step is, RECOGNIZE in what state of the mind you find yourself in. Afterwards, learn to ACCEPT, acknowledge and allow the situation or a person to be the way how it is, to be the way how they are. INVESTIGATE your emotional and mental state and ask questions. Why did it come up? What are the consequences if I remain in that state? Ultimately, NON-IDENTIFICATION is the practice; I am not the body, I am not the mind, I am not my emotion. It’s just that I can see all these three aspects about me. ALL OF OUR LIVES ARE TOO UNIQUE TO COPY THE PAST FROM SOMEONE ELSE. To bring meaning to your life, to bring value into your life, you need to learn to master yourself.

As a child, when I didn't have much control over my environment and I wasn't able to just be inside my room undisturbed and not go to unimportant events because of my parents, I was able to accept my environment. I suffered in the noise, the social anxiety, the judgement, the stress, the standing around, the heat of the sun etc. It toughened me up. It made my body and mind adjust to that environment and see it as "normal". Once I saw discomfort and chaos as normal, I was able to sit in it peacefully. I was hurting and suffering a lot but I didn't think of it as unfair, and thank god I didn't. It was the best childhood I could have ever wished for. It taught me how to be at peace with suffering. Once I was able to do that, I was able to fully feel actual peace inside my room or when sitting outside somewhere looking at the clear blue sky and hearing birds chirping. Calmness is a superpower that doesn't seem to need any real effort. All it needs is for you to let things go. To stop controlling and just experience. To stop reacting and just feel. To stop thinking and just be.

It's amusing how closely aligned modern psychology has aligned with buddhist teachings. It's as though as a profession they looked to their teachings and realised: These guys have already got us beat. They've wrapped all concepts covered in these talks in western language - Cognitive behaviour therapy.

Yes! At first I talked back to him in my mind, “I feel it. How dare you tell me I am not my feeling?” Then I realized what he meant. My emotions, my thoughts and my worries are just the state of minds or actions and they are not ME. We suffer because we identify ourselves with our state of feelings or doings.

Same here, if an 18 minute video can change your perspective and restore faith in yourself wholly - then imagine what years of buddhist training can accomplish. I deeply admire the wisdom these people carry within themselves, but also the discipline.

I will tell you something about yourself Master Shi Heng Yi. You are intuitive, kind, slow to anger, thoughtful, intelligent, resourceful, very good looking, you had to fight the self to achieve the inner stillness. You win because you can work until you get what you want. Others look up to you and you don't have to have that, to feel like a success. You are amazing! I would love to know you!

💟 *That's because you are the Impartial Spectator, the Watcher - the real you is "One" with G'd, your Divine Soul. And therefore your actions will be without the 5 hindrances, based on love, what is needed in the here and now, as "G'd's Spirit" further directs the way you should be.. Salvation comes from true self-realization.* 🙏🏽

There is a sixth hindrance, most agree: Greed. This is desire; as in the desire for things to be other than they are actually and right now. In prison I learned "it's all right here." Or as another remarked, the greatest obstacle to happiness is our idea that there's a way things should be.
