We tend to think enlightenment is something we'll get around to about the same time we get our estates in order. And in the meantime, we're trying to figure out how to work toward it, or toward a reasonable facsimile… something that's actually handy in our everyday lives.
Scheduling enlightenment or working toward it isn't going to work. There's only one moment in your life when liberation from suffering is possible – now. And with the holidays bearing down on us, with so many emotional hazards wrapped up in hope and good will, it's a perfect time to realize freedom.
Come this Sunday from 7 to 8:30 pm and explore the wondrous possibilities of This Moment, even when it's tucked under a tree in risky territory. Give your friends a priceless gift and invite them, too.
And if you're wondering how to deal with difficulties in your meditation practice, come a little earlier. At 6:40 pm, in the same room where we meet at 7pm, I'll offer a class in meditation for anyone with Beginner's Mind, tailored to your needs and questions.
See you then,
