Mini Mindfulness Break for October 16, 2021

Dear *[FNAME]*:
Practice regarding the physical sensations that constantly flow from your body to your mind with detached curiosity. Some feel good, some feel bad—interesting! Resist trying to shape the next moment into something other than what it will naturally become by grasping for more gratification or pushing away any discomfort. This ability to be with what is, rather than yearning for something else, eliminates most suffering.

– Andrew Olendzki, Dharma Wheel – Tricycle

Dear *[FNAME]*:
“Compassion is comprised of that capacity to see clearly into the nature of suffering. It is that ability to really stand strong and to recognize that I’m not separate from this suffering… We actually aspire to transform suffering and if we are so blessed, we engage in activities that transform suffering… We cannot be attached to outcome.”

Dear *[FNAME]*:
There’s nothing in life that is not supporting us to choose Life over ego suffering. But we don’t see it. We don’t see it because as Life is unfolding goodness for us we’re zoomed in on conditioned mind as it tells stories of “something wrong” and “not enough.” It’s like being in a movie theatre with two side-by-side screens, one showing “wrong” and one showing “IS.” What we tune in to determines the life we have.

Dear *[FNAME]*:
When Pain Happens to Us

We suffer because we marry our instinctive aversion to pain to the deep-seated belief that life should be free from pain. In resisting our pain by holding this belief, we strengthen just what we’re trying to avoid. When we make pain the enemy, we solidify it. This resistance is where our suffering begins.

– Ezra Bayda, “When It Happens to Us”

Dear *[FNAME]*:
Be Still in Your Heart

When we wake up to how human life on this planet actually is, and stop running away or building walls in our heart, then we develop a wiser motivation for our life. And we keep waking up as the natural dukkha [suffering] touches us. This means that we sharpen our attention to catch our instinctive reactions of blaming ourselves, blaming our parents, or blaming society; we meditate and access our suffering at its root; and consequently we learn to open and be still in our heart.

Dear *[FNAME]*:
Invincible Purity

As we listen more deeply to suffering, we begin to notice non-suffering. The heart realizes its innate courage, strength, and invincibility. This journey through pain and suffering burns away the impurities, and what is revealed is something pristine, clear, and beautiful, like a moonlit pearl: the tender, merciful heart, and its infinite ability to receive the cries of the world.

– Thanissara, “The Grit That Becomes a Pearl”

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]*:
    Identify with Consciousness

    Suffering exists until we identify not with the changing conditions of our lives but with consciousness itself.
