The Practice to Respect Mind
King Flower has finally given Apriori Flower the teaching of the last of the Five Petals. The Five Petals are the jewels of the crown. The Five Petals are metaphorically the Five Precepts of Buddhism. Buddhism is the study of the Buddha who had awakened his mind.
The 5th Petal is Respect Mind. This also means to be sober. We are aware that certain chemicals affect us. Once we are aware there is the action of avoiding what we have determined is harmful because it affects our mind. Each individual in our society must make the decision.
It is like watching a train smash into a car. You see this happen. You hear about it happen. Do you need to park your car on the tracks to find out if this is true?
The mind is the most valuable tool that we have in liberating our selves from the mire of everyday life. Meditation will decompress the mind with practice. Making the mind distracted is only erratic practice.
