WHAT SHOULD WE DO WHEN WE CAN’T SEEM TO THINK THINGS THROUGH?

Caller:

Master Lu, when we can’t seem to think things through, is reciting the name of Guan Yin Bodhisattva the quickest solution, besides reciting Heart Sutra and studying Buddhism in Plain Terms?

Master Jun Hong Lu:

Yes, you should remove yourself from your current environment, get up and move around.  As a person moves around, any brooding thoughts will instantly be thrown into disarray and his initial train of thought would be disrupted.  In psychology, it is regarded as disrupted attention. At the time, he was concerned with the urge to pick a quarrel with someone due to the anger over the words said.  However, once he stands up and walks around, his attention would be disrupted, and this would effect a change in his attitude.

Caller:

Thank you Master Lu.
