Letting Go, Part 2
In this podcast, we look at when to let go through the lens of the 8 Worldy Winds, and how to let go through a radical re-framing of welcoming.
Sitting Meditation – Letting Go
This meditation explores the interplay between goodwill, compassion, letting go and welcoming the moment just as it is.
Let go a little, get a little peace. Let go a lot, get a lot of peace. Let go completely, get complete peace. A. Chah
Sounds good, but how do we really let go?
We explore how intentional small acts of kindness begin to add up to change the quality of our day and tenor of our life.
This week concludes our study of the foundational teaching of Buddhist psychology in the Four Noble Truths, as we study Wise Action-- meaning learning to take a step, whether large or small, whether directed towards care for others or self-care, that is aligned with our deepest values and with what gives our lives a keen sense of meaning and purpose.
"Wise livelihood" has no easy answers, but that in no way means we give up. There is a moral complexity that is important that we wrestle with. We do this with a clear intention to do the best we can while knowing we won’t ever find perfect answers.
