2021-03-03 Doing and Not-Doing in Meditation and in Daily Life 1 1:10:10
Donald Rothberg
We explore the nature of doing and not-doing, first in dharma practice generally. The Buddha’s teachings seem full of exhortations to diligence, mindfulness, and skillful effort and doing. Yet there also is a clear place for not-doing—for example, in letting go and in cultivating mindful receptivity to experience. We can also see how being a “doer” is so central to many of our identities, whether in our roles or work or even our meditation. Given these dimensions of doing and not-doing, we suggest a number of ways to inquire into and respond to our patterns and habits related to doing and not-doing, both in meditation and daily life.

2021-02-08 Seeing the World with the Heart of Wisdom | Monday Night talk 51:25
Jack Kornfield
We have the capacity to be awake and to see the world as it is with a graciousness and an understanding. As the poet Mary Oliver writes, "To live in this world, you must be able to do three things: to love what is mortal; to hold it against your bones knowing your own life depends on it; and, when the time comes to let it go, to let it go." This is our dance, our human incarnation: to tend and love that which is ephemeral.
