2008-11-03 Shoot Me First: Right Intention, Effort & Social Responsibility 1:17:35
As we follow the steps of the Eightfold Noble Path, our hatred, greed, and delusion abate. We may yet suffer, but we use our suffering to fathom the meaning of it, see its causes, and see the possibility for ending suffering. The four Noble Truths come alive within. Invariably, our suffering manifests in many forms. It may never ‘end’ but it ceases to be a problem as our fear or aversion to it die. Persevering in this work is the way to make peace with our suffering.

What is renunciation? Patiently we learn how to let go of the thoughts and actions that enslave us to samsara. And we begin to understand what it takes to tame the ego and cultivate greater and greater compassion in its boundless quality. Through this magnificent process, we study the way to ascend the altar and sit with our teacher, the Buddha.

Were you able to taste the silence? Do compelling thoughts continue to grab at you? Is it difficult to find the off button? Know that we all deal with these thoughts. We can train ourselves to practice in good conditions so that we are prepared for the vicissitudes of everyday life. We can indeed realize freedom. A talk given at a retreat at the Padua Centre in Montreal, Quebec in 2008.

Is your mind full of the present moment at all times? We can learn to integrate our practice with our everyday lives as awareness develops when we are both on and off the meditation cushion. With diligence, we can realize a mind that is bright and radiant, full of joy and peace. A talk given at a True North Insight weekend retreat in the Padua Centre, Montreal, Canada.
