It asks us to let go of these ways of life and thought that have been trained into us from birth: humans as special, nature as resource, greed and hate as normal. In Buddhism, greed, hate, and the sense of separation are called the Three Poisons. The way Life actually works is that each one of us is created by everything around us, past and present, and we in turn give life to everything else, present and future.

We are a speck on the wave of Life, never lonely while in a way profoundly alone. Knowing this is freedom. We can drop our burdens, whether those burdens are saving the planet or making a successful career. Life takes care of itself. Our job as individuals is to respond to the movement of Life in and around us.

Fortunately, even a glimpse is enlivening and energizing, and glimpses are common. This way is joyful. Its hope is not the hope that something will change, but hope that embraces things as they are, joins with them enthusiastically, and responds in kind, with gratitude, creating resiliency without expectation.

This way is open to anyone who wants it.

We live in difficult times. Words fail. We need to look deeply into the nature of our society. Why are we the only country on earth with this problem of mass shootings including children? The first is a interview with Martin Prechtel, offering a completely different way of relating to the world.

Both point to a profound dysfunction in society, and Prechtel makes it clear how this leads to destroying our own selves. My question, and the business of the Alliance, is how we change this in ourselves and in the broader culture. For our own survival, it needs to change. Meanwhile, praying for the leaders, and doing my best to carry out the work that has called me, which faces and addresses the nature of our shared mind.

The Sakyadhita Conference was over a month ago.

Please forgive my silence. I will just write a little now. The conference was an immersion in the varieties of Buddhist women — particularly the many kinds of nuns. Those of us in Japanese traditions, wearing black and having wide lifestyle choices, were very few. I made friends with a wide range of nuns who lived with full vows — celibacy, wearing robes all the time, living monastically, depending on gifts for food and shelter any day.

We spent an hour there, finding it difficult to leave.

Before

At the top of the hill was an ordinary park, with a water fountain, exercise stations, grass, and a tree identification walk. Janet and Sophie returned, I continued — wanting to spend as much time as possible. I asked this tree to give fertility in my work. Thought she said yes, but I stopped again on the way back and she said let go, let go, let go; trying is the obstacle. The waterfall was full of light, life, youth. She did not give permission to share photos, except of this formation which seemed to me like the face of the spirit of the falls. I could have stayed forever.

Coming back down the hill, I went back toward the Buddha. This time I saw another figure in the rock wall: a carved dragon and phoenix. So I stopped for conversation. And I asked if they would help me. You are nothing. Suddenly I realized that I was engaged in trying to make things happen. Some of my friends immediately understood. Beth said that letting go makes one more effective.

So I got sick. It feels like the right step at this time. Tags: alliance , ally , Buddhism , climate change , community , consciousness , cultural change , Dharma , intimacy , nature spirit , prayer , shrine , spiritual practice , spirituality , Zen. We began the conference with a series of sacred chants, from nuns in different traditions.

It was beautiful. Then we had brief welcome speeches, a ceremony of lighting the altar. Most of the conference will consist of panels of speakers, on a variety of topics related to Buddhism and to women. The first day panels were mostly stories of Buddhist women across cultures, and specifically in Hong Kong where we are meeting.

My roommate, a scholar, gave a talk yesterday. She was researching feminism in monastics in the area where she does research. I really liked her process of inquiry.

The variety of styles and colors of robes is beautiful and amazing. Gray are China and Korea, maroon are Mongolian or Tibetan Buddhism, black are from Japan, and there are lots of brown or gold ones. The Theravadins classical Buddhists come in a wide variety — you can see them in the first photo of chanting. A Nepali nun with minimal English helped me identify where the various robes were from. A moving thing has happened twice now: a lay person walks up to me, bows, and hands me a small red envelope.

I bow in return and accept the envelope. Receiving a gift whether asked or not compels a certain quality of life — to live wholeheartedly, to be worthy of the gift. It is amazing to be here. My workshop is two days from now. Make a single or recurring donation here. Tag Archives: Buddhism. This act of healing and nourishing is our offering to the land, and creating a sacred space opens a door to more offerings.

In other words, we will make beauty.

G uidance. For me, Buddhist practice is about living as part of the earth, fully sustained and embraced in joy. Usually we think of Buddhism as a philosophy — intellectual, disembodied — or a religion.

Buddhism calls us back to the ancient or indigenous way of relating to the world and to the sacred. It asks us to let go of these ways of life and thought that have been trained into us from birth: humans as special, nature as resource, greed and hate as normal. In Buddhism, greed, hate, and the sense of separation are called the Three Poisons.

The way Life actually works is that each one of us is created by everything around us, past and present, and we in turn give life to everything else, present and future. We are a speck on the wave of Life, never lonely while in a way profoundly alone. Knowing this is freedom.
