Mini Mindfulness Break for October 09, 2021

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]*:
We’re Already Complete

You and I don’t manifest in the universe as meaning, we manifest as living human beings. We’re not here to represent something else. We’re here in our own right. A human being, or a garden hoe for that matter, is complete in itself.

– Lin Jensen, “Wash Your Bowl”

Dear *[FNAME]*:
For Whom Do You Practice?

If we wish to live well in the world, not just amble along through life without any examination of our being, then we must engage in the effort to find meaning in our lives. In order to do this, we have to find a way to balance our own interiority with an empathic recognition of others.

– Eido Frances Carney, “The Way of Ryokan”

Dear *[FNAME]*:
Pure Freedom

The practice of generosity is the practice of freedom, and it carries with it all the joy and pleasure that are associated with liberation. Indeed, there may be no greater sense of fulfillment in life than the simultaneous feelings of human interconnection and pure freedom that arise from an authentic act of selfless generosity.

– Dale S. Wright, “The Bodhisattva’s Gift”

Dear *[FNAME]*:
Challenge How We Cling

When Buddhism says, ‘It’s an illusion, it’s empty,’ I think back to when Ignatius said, ‘Your self–that’s your problem. You have to conquer self, kill the self.’ It’s that tradition, both in Christianity and in Buddhism, in which we are challenged to let go of what is so comfortable and what we cling to as who we are, if we’re going to open ourselves to reality and truth.

– Jerry Brown, “Politics and Prayer”

Dear *[FNAME]*:
Feel Impermanence

Impermanence should end up being a feeling, not just an intellectual understanding.

Dear *[FNAME]*:
Buddha’s answer in the Discourse on Happiness, when he was asked:

“Many gods and men are eager to know what are the greatest blessings which bring about a peaceful and happy life. Please, Tathagata, will you teach us?”

And the Buddha replied with 13 blessings, one of which was:

“To persevere and be open to change, and to have regular contact with monks and nuns, and to fully participate in Dharma discussions – this is the greatest happiness.”

– Buddha

Dear *[FNAME]*:
Generosity Goes Beyond Gifts

An act of giving is of most benefit when one gives something of value, carefully, with one’s own hand, while showing respect, and with a view that something wholesome will come of it.
