Practice for the Week: The First Noble Truth - There is suffering
Thank you all for coming last night. I felt nurtured by your practice and presence.
Here is the reflection I mentioned towards the end of the talk last night:
Is there some aspect of suffering in my life that I would like to be able to know better so I can change my relationship to it?
Spending a few minutes or so everyday this week contemplating this, recognizing the habitual pattern that makes the suffering repeat itself and then thinking about another way of responding the next time, are good places to start.
See you next Sunday for the Second Noble Truth, the origin of suffering.
