May 08, 2019 - The Gift of Embodied Wisdom

There must be something that the Dhamma is pointing to—this seeing the harm that’s around us all the time, having to let go of the need to get my way, and turning towards a kinder way of being and relating in the world. To the thinking mind, this doesn’t make any sense! It cannot be that simply turning toward dukkha, walking the Eightfold Path of kindness and goodwill, doing no harm, and living this much more renunciate life can possibly lead to a better world for all of us. Clearly there’s got to be something else. But there’s not. There really isn’t anything better.
