You can’t hide from the truth, even in the darkest depths of your mind, living out of sync with reality, with expectations not in line with reality, avoiding hard truths, just creates more suffering for yourself . Live not by lies, accept truth, and live in accordance with nature, and your suffering will fall away like autumn leaves.
harder to do externally in times where everyone has their own truths , their own facts, and no one knows what they are doing, but all you can do is try your best and try to live in accordance with Dhamma.
waiting for my connecting flight, coming back from a rewarding weekend with new Dhamma friends from a place I never expected to visit in this lifetime.
meeting people from all over, being invited into their Dhamma family for a short time, and discussing Dhamma and many other things with them, its quite meaningful and rewarding to me… but now im tired and need some alone time.
for the first time since covid, im flying to another state( Arkansas) to share a weekend of Dhamma with people in person.
in these last three years, ive been on more planes then in the past 20 years of my life, but its all been for my development and growth on the path.
Its a good time now for me to get back to traveling to share Dhamma. talking to a bunch of black screens on a zoom is nowhere near the same as being with people in person, ive missed that actually.
I will be taking part in a day of Dhamma teachings by various monastics hosted by a group in Sydney Australia. All times are Sydney times, which means for east coast Usa most sessions will be afternoon/night the day before.
going out on all morning pindapat this morning, will return to doing MME tomorrow(Thursday)
Ill be going on an all morning pindapat today so no MME this morning.
