The Experience of Gongjing
To Whom It May Concern,
I woke up this morning inspired me to write about a Chinese term Gongjing. Cultivating this state to its fullest can be very rewarding. Gongjing incorporates calm, trusting, openness, love, gratitude, reverence, humility, and true respect for life. It replaces all the defensive patterns that mess with our relationships with others and ourselves. It replaces wanting and brings it back to our natural state of having, being and enjoyment of what is versus looking at what is wrong in life.
