Excellence Reporter: Dr. Liu Dong, what is the meaning of life?
Dr. Liu Dong: Many students have asked me what is the meaning of life? I always answer with a smile, “Life is to have an ordinary life, be an ordinary person.” Not to be attached to the color of life or to the interference of your environment.
An ordinary person is like ordinary soil. The earth is simple yet contains and transforms all things. The earth has three functions: reception of all things, transformation of all things, and rehabilitation of all things. Only in this way can we transform emotions and diseases.
Every day I perform Misha Zen for 30 minutes, to clear my mind and achieve the four levels: stable, calm, emptiness, and inspiration.
Getting rid of the fogginess in a cloudy brain can show us true peace. The fogginess of a cloudy brain is like the moving wind, water, and turbulence in a lake. In the moment of clarifying the brain, we see the clean water of the lake thus we think clearly and we start to appreciate each moment of life.
Numerous neuroscience researches show that when people practice Misha Zen meditation, the brain waves move into the Gamma state. The Gamma wave facilitates the ability to create power, love, happiness, and simplicity. At this time, a positive attitude integrates into our daily mental behaviors and guides us to a higher and purer energy. The Gamma waves also stimulate the left frontal cortex, which then increases. The enlarged frontal cortex makes people calmer, happier, and at peace with themselves.
