2018-12-02 The Way We Look Shapes What We See 39:48
Nathan Glyde
There is always a little more we can see, and a little more we can learn; especially about how our way of looking is shaping what we see. There is always a way of looking shaping our view, there is no neutral mode, so we don't ever see the world passively. Understanding this brings a deepening understanding of liberation.
2018-12-03 Anything Can Be a Hindrance or a Teaching 50:33
Nathan Glyde
The 5 hindrances to deep ease are ways of looking at and relating with the world. By adjusting our view and creatively participating in the fabrication of body-heart-mind we can get free of these common entanglements of dukkhā.

Nathan Glyde
Some very obvious things need to be looked at with more honest clarity; One of those is our sense of self. It just seems so obvious, practically undeniable, that “I am”. Yet a separate self is impossible to find; what a paradox.

Nathan Glyde
Emptiness doesn't imply detachment, or that another's suffering doesn't matter. Understanding emptiness and Dependent Origination liberates love from self-concern, and opens wise ways to interact with and change the world. "The Sūtra says that outer things are not at all real – it is the mind that manifests in various ways. This teaching that dismisses outer forms was only a device to counteract the strong attachment that we have to things." –Chandrakīrti
