The Great Way Is Not Difficult; It Just Avoids Picking & Choosing: Sunday Meditation & Talk with John Tarrant & Friends
June 26 @ 10:30 am - 12:00 pmFree – $10
Not Picking & Choosing
The great way is not difficult if you just don’t pick and choose.
We can fairly easily see that not picking and choosing will help free us from some entanglements. At first you might think it’s about not caring, but actually it’s the opposite. It’s to do with befriending reality, listening to reality with a tender care. Mazu said,
When the mind of a person of the Way encounters any kind of painful or pleasant, agreeable or disagreeable situation, it does not recede.
When we listen in this way, many gates will open, and we will find the path that suits us and helps those we wish to help.
Join us on Sunday for adventures in the nature of mind and heart.
Meditation is not a task with a known goal. It’s something you can’t do wrong, a chance for the things of this world to come towards you and to meet you, for doors to open by themselves, and for us to see where the ancient paths lead.
Waking up is something we do together, in the online temple on Sunday. We love it when you join us.
—John Tarrant Roshi and all of us at PZI
