Meditation for PeaceA Mind Free of Sorrow.This means that the mind is affected with something undesirableIt’s unavoidable for every one to face the eight worldly conditions except for the enlightened one or the noble one whose mind is kept calm and collected no matter what pleasant or unpleasant objects come to him/her.The Buddha saw through his mind that:1. Anicca is impermanence or transience, and instability.2. Dukkha is suffering that can definitely be destroyed is one day, and is not long lasting.3. Anatta is actually not one’s true self and is not in control to lead one to satisfaction, all of which are opposite to Nirvana, which are permanence, happiness and self.This is similar to an ill person who is not ready to do any kind of work.Another thing that one does not need to face but causes a person to struggle and then get addicted to is temptation. At first, a person is happy to have something but it is subject to the conditions of impermanence, suffering and not self. So when it is gone, we are blue. This philosophy also refers to love.The ones who attain Enlightenment do not preoccupy themselves with love, so they do not experience the grief of it, since they love nothing but Nirvana.A sorrowful mind is a drained mind or a dispirited mind similar to soil or leaves dried up without moisture. This means that the mind is affected with something undesirable, making our mind exhausted. A gloomy, heavy heart is one that is longing for something,A gloomy mind is not a good state of mind to go to work with, and not capable to perform a responsible job with. This is similar to an ill person who is not ready to do any kind of work.
