Be a Farmer and Feel Happy – Rely On The Sound – Small House Happiness

Be a Farmer and Feel Happy

Spoken by Supreme Master Ching Hai, International Gathering in Europe,
June 30, Golden Year 10 (2013) (Originally in English) (DVD#1014)

Please, remember. Be a farmer. Farmer, farmer, farmers. Have fun, okay? Instead of spending your time thinking nonsense sometimes, or feeling sad about something, just go and plant a pot of flowers, fruits, vegetables. Spend your energy on something conducive, and then you’ll feel happy. We are made from earth and water anyway. So if you are in contact with earth and water, that also makes you feel like you are in your element. You naturally feel happy. That’s why the research, I told you already, the research has found out that the most happily married couples are the farmers. Number one. And number two, I think, (Audience: Teachers.) Ah, teachers, and then doctors. These are the ones that help yourself and help people as well, you see?

 

Rely On The Sound

Spoken by Supreme Master Ching Hai, International Gathering in Europe,

Because the Sound, the mind can hear from afar. The Light is flickering, you see? It cannot be brought into this world. But the Sound can. You see, that’s why even if you’re on Fifth Level, you listen to the Fifth Level Sound, but you are still here, very consciously alive. That’s why we rely on the Sound. That’s why in the Buddhist sutra, the Buddha even said that all the saints, the Bodhisattvas (spiritual practitioners), the Buddhas rely on the Sound to come here to help the world, and rely on that Sound to go back to where they belong. The Buddha’s land. Heaven. Okay? Even Buddha has to rely on the Sound.

 

Small House Happiness

Spoken by Supreme Master Ching Hai, International Gathering in Europe,
July 2, Golden Year 10 (2013) (Originally in English) (DVD#1015)

Big houses never make people happy. Maybe that’s why a lot of people are not happy. Because so many things, you feel oppressive. Because big house, you collect things. Small house, you think twice before you want to collect something. And you need just a small car, if you are alone or two people. You don’t need a big car. I need a big car because I have still dogs. Before that, a smaller car is better, yes? And the smaller the house, the happier you will be. Because whatever you need is there!
