World Peace Through Inner Peace

Letters from the heart

Letters from the heart

To My Teacher

Posted on August 19, 2008 at 10:55 PM

 LETTERS FROM THE HEART 

LETTERS FROM THE HEART ARE REAL STORIES THAT HAPPENED TO REAL PEOPLE, I HOPE EVERYONE CAN BENIFIT FROM THEIR EXPENIENCES. 

 

I BELIEVE UNTIL YOU CAN PRACTICE MEDITATION ON A DAILY BASIS, YOU CANNOT BEGIN TO KNOW THE VALUE OF WHAT IT COULD DO FOR YOUR LIFE.

 

THE PAST IS WHAT IT IS .... THE PAST. WE SHOULD BE ABLE TO LEARN FROM OUR MISTAKES AND NOT TO REPEAT THEM.

 

BEFORE I CAME INTO THE LIGHT AND WISDOM OF MEDITATION, I MADE CERTAIN DECISIONS THAT I STILL AM RESPONSIBLE FOR TODAY.

 

MY LIFE NOW IS DEDICATED TO THE CAUSE OF WORLD PEACE. I THOUGHT THAT BECAUSE I HAD PROBLEMS I COULD NEVER BE A SPOKES PERSON FOR WORLD PEACE. BUT NOW I KNOW THAT BECAUSE OF MY PROBLEMS IS WHY I WAS CHOSEN. I DO MY BEST TO FILL THE REMAINING DAYS OF MY LIFE ON EARTH WITH MERITS AND GOOD DEEDS. THE WORLD IS FILLED WITH PEOPLE WITH PROBLEMS, THIS IS WHY I TRY TO SHARE AT LEAST A SMILE WITH OTHERS EACH DAY.

 

NOW I AM IN LOVING KINDNESS ADDRESSING MY PAST ACTIONS IN WISDOM AND IN LOVE FOR THE FUTURE.

 

THANK YOU FOR READING.

 

                     

Dearest Venerable Luang Phor Dhammjayo,

I write this letter to you from the depths of my heart. Since the day that we met you never judged me. Even before we met, Her Serene Royal Highness Princess M.L.Rajadarasi (Mom) told me so many wonderful things about you that I was quite nervous at meeting you. She showed me breathtaking pictures of The Dhammakaya Temple and about The Telly Award winning Television Network DMC,all the relief work you have done for families affected by tragedy's like The Tsunami floods ,and all of your World Peace awards.But most of all I was getting ready to meet one of the kindest and wisest men in all the world whose whole life is about meditation and teaching others to meditate.

Honestly years ago my brief encounter with Transcendental Meditation was something I did with my wife at that time for a few minutes a day for several weeks.Maybe it was my Christian background or my own negligence but the interest wasn't there for me strong enough for me to continue.

Mom shared with me that through meditation you become brighter and more knowledgeable. So the longer and more consistent you are , the more brighter and full of knowledge you become.

I was amazed at when I met you you told me of the time when I was 7 years old and I heard the voice that spoke to me and told me that I was going to be used as one of the instruments to help bring World Peace. You already knew that I was a Christian and embraced me a your Christian family member. You went on to further explain that meditation is something that is for everyone regardless of their race, creed , color , or origin. I remembering you also saying that war is very costly but it cost nothing to meditate.Also that the day everyone finds the inner peace of meditation is when we will have World Peace.

As a Christian Luang Phor I am familiar with the practice of prayer. I pray everyday. Even at The United Nations we have had a day of prayer on Sep 21 since 1981 for World Peace.Not much has changed since then. We still have wars, hunger, greed ,  violence and hatred. So then it came to me According to The Bible that prayer is only half of the spiritual dialog.King David said," Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable in Thy sight .Oh Lord My strength and my Redeemer.So meditation is about observing and listening.How can one have spiritual dialog and only speak and not listen.Now I understand that I need both to express as well as listen.

Realizing that prayer is where you make your supplication and meditation is where you listen for your answer.Meditation brings inner peace and we must first have inner peace before we can have World Peace. Now I embrace my Buddhist family and invite my Christians family and Jewish, Islamic, Hindu and all religious families of all faiths to meditate for World Peace.For Luang Phor as you say,"We are all but one family and live under the same sun."

Luang Phor , I have so much to learn and I thank you for being my Teacher. You are so young yet because of your wisdom you have become like a father to me. Never judging me because of my problems and all the mistakes I have made but patiently knowing that through meditation I would become a better person. I remember when we first met you lovingly told me," You must become refined through meditation". Now I find myself meditating most times two hours daily. I have now also been meditating for the past 2 years consistantly everyday of my life and it has changed me in the most wonderful way.

Just as I need food to feed my body, I now need meditation for my soul. My vision is brighter, I find myself more understanding and patient with everyone. I am facing my past mistakes by being responsible for my future, yet I no longer live in the past. I now am able to greet humanity with a smile of love from my heart.I want everyone to know about the joy of meditation so much that I feel as you do Luang Phor, " I will not rest until every living soul has seen the sun of peace inside."

It has also in my greatest honor to have the privilege to write music to your profound words of wisdom and guidance on how to meditate and the joy of meditation.

My life as yours is now about World Peace through meditation.

Thank you Luang Phor and allowing this Christian brother to join with you in your vision for a world filled with love,joy, happiness, wisdom and inner peace through meditation.

Respectfully,

Howard McCrary
