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

2018-12-05 Everything Changes But You 41:08
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.

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.

2018-12-02 The Way We Look Shapes What We See 39:48
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.

A broad talk: The comparing mind; Working with the inner critic with skill and care; Inquiry of scale when we question how we measure up; In moments of calm we can open further into the emptiness of all things; using the inquiry of refutation: Neither One Nor Many.

2018-06-16 Meditation - Breath Energy All Body 43:51
Using imaginal feeling to breath in ways beyond an anatomical understanding is easier, and more natural, than it sounds. We can attune to the breath as a movement of energy, which can enliven and relieve body tension. We can still the heart-mind and resolve the body contraction, while cultivating an unshakeable attentiveness. In this way we bring nourishment and a sense of greater aliveness with the in breath expansion, as well as letting be and relaxation on the out breath release.
