Mini Mindfulness Break for October 12, 2021

Dear *[FNAME]*:
Resisting what we can’t control removes us from reality, rendering our emotions, circumstances and loved ones inaccessible. The result is a terrible emptiness, which we usually blame on our failure to get what we want. Actually, it comes from refusing to accept what we have.

– Martha Beck, Victory By Surrender

Dear *[FNAME]*:
Reflecting Enlightenment

To wake up, to be liberated, is to be able to reflect the buddhadharma, as it is, without your projection. You don’t possess enlightenment. It possesses you.

– Roshi Robert Althouse, â€ŔAfter Awakening”

Dear *[FNAME]*:
Watering the Seedlings of Intention

Metta practice is the cultivation of our capacity for lovingkindness. It does not involve either positive thinking or the imposition of an artificial positive attitude. . . . Rather, we meditate on our good intentions, however weak or strong they may be, and water the seeds of these intentions.

Dear *[FNAME]*:
“I live in a place and time where the Buddha has appeared and his teachings still exist, and I have belief in things worthy of respect such as ethical conduct, concentration, and wisdom. Recalling this daily enables me to maintain a joyful attitude immune to depression and discouragement.”

– His Holiness the Dalai Lama

Dear *[FNAME]*:
It is hard to define engaged Buddhism. But I think it has to do with a willingness to see how deeply people suffer; to understand how we have fashioned whole systems of suffering out of gender, race, caste, class, ability, and so on; and to know that interdependently and individually we co-create this suffering… Some days, I call this engaged Buddhism; on other days I think it is just plain Buddhism – walking the Bodhisattva path, embracing the suffering of beings by taking responsibility for them.

Dear *[FNAME]*:
Good Anger

Anger that is motivated by compassion or a desire to correct social injustice, and does not seek to harm the other person, is a good anger that is worth having.

– Interview with H. H. the Dalai Lama by Noriyuki Ueda, “The (Justifiably) Angry Marxist”

Dear *[FNAME]*:
Peace demands the most heroic labor and the most difficult sacrifice. It demands greater heroism than war. It demands greater fidelity to the truth and a much more perfect purity of conscience.

Dear *[FNAME]*:
When pleasure is encountered in ordinary life it is usually accompanied by desire and craving. When we practice mindfulness with pleasant feeling tones as an object, the goal is to experience the sensations with equanimity rather than with preference and attachment. It is natural to experience pleasure; the danger comes only when we allow it to carry us away into unhealthier mental and emotional states.

    Dear *[FNAME]*:
    Learning to Be Human

    Fact is, we practice being human in every waking moment. And the more mindfully we practice, the more often our conflicts dissolve, the more easily we create new possibilities for relationship and community.

    – Philip Simmons, “Learning to Fall”
