Student: Master, you mentioned about opening your mind in order to open the realm.  How do we open our mind?”

Master: The understanding of phenomena and one’s purpose in life requires that one open his mind and open the realm.  This is very important.  The mind is formless, but the mind can manifest phenomena. The mind creates phenomena.  The different status and conditions of our mind will create different types of phenomena for us.  Therefore, open the mind by realizing the defective phenomenon created by your mind.  For example, if you have a negative relationship with your spouse, how can you fix it?  Your mind is manifesting it. The phenomenon is here.  That is the reality.  In order to open the gate or remove hindrances, you need to open from the bottom of your mind.  Because we do not know the status of our mind, we cannot see our mind, but at least we can realize the status of our mind through the phenomenon created in this present moment.  Through the defective phenomenon and through the defective relationship, we should be able to realize it.
