“A Dharma motivation looks beyond the happiness of this life to having a fortunate rebirth and eventually attaining liberation or full awakening. Some people might think that such a motivation takes us away from the present into some vague future. This is not the case. These Dharma motivations enhance the importance of this life because we can attain those Dharma aims during this life.

To have a fortunate rebirth, we must diminish our gross afflictions. To attain liberation, we must eliminate all afflictions. And to become a fully awakened buddha, we must purify the mind of all obscurations and cultivate all good qualities. To accomplish these aims, we must live vividly in the present moment, because the only moment in which to practice the Dharma is the present one.

Instead of dreaming of the things you desire or raging over what someone else did—all of which takes us away from the present—focus on cultivating merit and wisdom by transforming the present into the path to joy. Recognize your great fortune at meeting the Buddha’s teachings and take delight in creating the causes for happiness for yourself and others.” #takerefuge #refugerecovery #recoveryispossible #wedorecover #dharmapunx #againstthestream #meditateanddestroy #sithappens #heavilymeditated #meditatedontselfmedicate #soberlife #odaat #onedayatatime #onebreathatatime #soberandfree #sobrietyrocks #theravadabuddhism #buddhism #agnosticbuddhism #fournobletruths #eightfoldpath #meditationeveryday #freedomthroughwisdom #buddhadharmasangha #engagedbuddhism #rightnowitslikethis #iloveyoukeepgoing #iedharmapunx #awakeneveryday #thubtenchodron

Woodcut print: First color proof of 18x24 “Garden Buddha” — printed by hand on Mulberry paper at home. Now I really understand why using a press instead of a wooden spoon for burnishing would save tons of time... and my back ... more soon :)

“We get into a bad mood when we want things to be different from the way they are and are unable to accept what’s happening. No matter how much we fume, sulk, or complain, things are the way they are, and what’s happening is already happening. Rejecting the reality of the present is useless.

If we don’t like what’s happening, let’s reflect on the law of karma and its effects and see that our present experiences are the result of our previous actions in this or previous lives. Rather than reject what’s happening now, let’s accept it; it’s impermanent and will change. What is, is. Apply compassion and wisdom to the situation, and let go of the bad mood. With a peaceful heart, smile at the people around you (or at least don’t scowl at them)!” #takerefuge #refugerecovery #recoveryispossible #wedorecover #dharmapunx #againstthestream #meditateanddestroy #sithappens #heavilymeditated #meditatedontselfmedicate #soberlife #odaat #onedayatatime #onebreathatatime #soberandfree #sobrietyrocks #theravadabuddhism #buddhism #agnosticbuddhism #fournobletruths #eightfoldpath #meditationeveryday #freedomthroughwisdom #buddhadharmasangha #engagedbuddhism #rightnowitslikethis #iloveyoukeepgoing #iedharmapunx #awakeneveryday #thubtenchodron

“As we start to understand that preparing for future lives is more important than chasing sense pleasures in this life, we’ll experience more satisfaction in this life. However, don’t go to the opposite extreme of shunning this life—giving away all your possessions, depriving your body, or shunning the people you’re close to. That doesn’t benefit you or others and only causes more problems. 
Instead, use your body, possessions, and relationships to create virtue by practicing generosity, ethical conduct, fortitude, joyous effort, concentration, and wisdom. Instead of being attached to the things of this life, use them to create merit—for example, using your possessions to create merit through generosity; seeing your friends, relatives, colleagues, and acquaintances as beings worthy of compassion; and cultivating fortitude, the ability to not retaliate when others harm you. In this way, approach life with a balanced attitude free of clinging or aversion.” #takerefuge #refugerecovery #recoveryispossible #wedorecover #dharmapunx #againstthestream #meditateanddestroy #sithappens #heavilymeditated #meditatedontselfmedicate #soberlife #odaat #onedayatatime #onebreathatatime #soberandfree #sobrietyrocks #theravadabuddhism #buddhism #agnosticbuddhism #fournobletruths #eightfoldpath #meditationeveryday #freedomthroughwisdom #buddhadharmasangha #engagedbuddhism #rightnowitslikethis #iloveyoukeepgoing #iedharmapunx #awakeneveryday #thubtenchodron

“If we don’t receive teachings from a reliable guide like the Buddha, we may make up our own path to practice. We’ve done that in many previous lifetimes, but where has it gotten us? On the other hand, we shouldn’t blindly follow the Buddha’s teachings. He instructed us to examine his teachings using reasoning to see if they explain our experiences and the world around us, and to practice them to see if they work.

Through hearing, thinking, and meditating, we integrate our minds with the Buddha’s teachings so that the Dharma is no longer outside of us, but internalized into our lives. This takes practice and time. There are no shortcuts in this process. But no matter how long it takes, it’s worthwhile.” #takerefuge #refugerecovery #recoveryispossible #wedorecover #dharmapunx #againstthestream #meditateanddestroy #sithappens #heavilymeditated #meditatedontselfmedicate #soberlife #odaat #onedayatatime #onebreathatatime #soberandfree #sobrietyrocks #theravadabuddhism #buddhism #agnosticbuddhism #fournobletruths #eightfoldpath #meditationeveryday #freedomthroughwisdom #buddhadharmasangha #engagedbuddhism #rightnowitslikethis #iloveyoukeepgoing #iedharmapunx #awakeneveryday #thubtenchodron

“Does repaying the kindness of others entail doing whatever others want?

Repaying kindness doesn’t mean becoming a people-pleaser.  Squeezing yourself to become what you think others think you should be just makes you crazy. Furthermore, it’s impossible to make others everlastingly happy because they, like you, are beings in cyclic existence with dissatisfied minds.

Repaying kindness means opening our hearts to see that others are just like you. They have feelings like you. They want happiness and don’t want to suffer, just like you. In situations where you can be of direct benefit, take action. In addition, actively practice the path to improve the quality of your own mind. In this way, you’ll be able to introduce others to the Dharma and guide them on the path to true happiness.

That’s the best way to repay kindness.” #takerefuge #refugerecovery #recoveryispossible #wedorecover #dharmapunx #againstthestream #meditateanddestroy #sithappens #heavilymeditated #meditatedontselfmedicate #soberlife #odaat #onedayatatime #onebreathatatime #soberandfree #sobrietyrocks #theravadabuddhism #buddhism #agnosticbuddhism #fournobletruths #eightfoldpath #meditationeveryday #freedomthroughwisdom #buddhadharmasangha #engagedbuddhism #rightnowitslikethis #iloveyoukeepgoing #iedharmapunx #awakeneveryday #thubtenchodron

I love this quote from Thich Nhat Hanh because it speaks to the conciousness raising in our times...noone is free if one of us is oppressed, period. The times of the guru is over, the guru is within ALL OF US coming together right now. We can all have our needs met and be heard and this is an abundant planet where when we share, respect, listen, love and take care of one another we can all live free, abundant lives. Asking myself everyday how I can stretch to bring love more and that It's not about ME. It's about WE. 🙏🏽🙏🏽🙏🏽🙏🏽 This quote was in my inbox from @kellybroganmd and "sangha" means community.

“Sometimes we feel cornered by others’ expectations of us, or trapped by our negative feelings toward someone, or tangled up in feeling obliged, or desperately attached to someone and fear separation from them.

When these states of mind arise, it’s helpful to think that neither we nor the other person is something fixed. We are not solid, discreet personalities who always have the same roles and relationships. We are constantly changing entities. We didn’t have this relationship with this particular person in previous lives and we won’t in future lives. And when we do meet again, we’ll have a different kind of relationship because conditions will be different and so will our personalities.

Thinking in this way gives us mental space and enables us to treat the other person with respect instead of wrestling with our solid conception of who they are, who we are, and how things between us should be.” #takerefuge #refugerecovery #recoveryispossible #wedorecover #dharmapunx #againstthestream #meditateanddestroy #sithappens #heavilymeditated #meditatedontselfmedicate #soberlife #odaat #onedayatatime #onebreathatatime #soberandfree #sobrietyrocks #theravadabuddhism #buddhism #agnosticbuddhism #fournobletruths #eightfoldpath #meditationeveryday #freedomthroughwisdom #buddhadharmasangha #engagedbuddhism #rightnowitslikethis #iloveyoukeepgoing #iedharmapunx #awakeneveryday #thubtenchodron

It is 💯% a Buddhist sin how much I love my new meditation space. Took eight stupid years off from zazen, but what do you know—it's like riding a bike!

It is 💯% a Buddhist sin how much I love my new meditation space. Took eight stupid years off from zazen, but what do you know—it's like riding a bike! . . . . . . #buddhadharmasangha #ommanipadmehum #meditation #meditationpractice #meditation 🙏 #meditatedaily #committosit #zafu #mountainseat #takingrefuge #takingcareofme - 6 days ago

“Yes, but…” This is how we agree that something is true or good, but then try to get out of doing it by providing exceptions or making excuses. “Yes, it’s good if I do a daily meditation practice, but I have to do x-y-z, which makes it impossible.” Welcome to the book of 35,929,618 excuses. Who benefits from our “yes, but…”? Who is harmed by it? What mental factors are running the show?” #takerefuge #refugerecovery #recoveryispossible #wedorecover #dharmapunx #againstthestream #meditateanddestroy #sithappens #heavilymeditated #meditatedontselfmedicate #soberlife #odaat #onedayatatime #onebreathatatime #soberandfree #sobrietyrocks #theravadabuddhism #buddhism #agnosticbuddhism #fournobletruths #eightfoldpath #meditationeveryday #freedomthroughwisdom #buddhadharmasangha #engagedbuddhism #rightnowitslikethis #iloveyoukeepgoing #iedharmapunx #awakeneveryday #thubtenchodron

One of my long-standing struggles in my life has been with this particular fact of emotions. In much of my learning about addiction and therapy and even my practice in Buddhism I’m finding out that often the feelings I’m feeling aren’t really as they seem. Through out the years I’ve found at times I’ve had feelings that I couldn’t explain fully. After realizing the nature of primary and secondary emotions and also how they all come up it’s helped me in my practice to take note of it when they come up. I’m so excited for this next chapter of my life coming up. I feel like the seed is planted and now it’s just time to nurture that seed. ☸️🙏🏼📿💎💎💎#recoverydharmacollective #buddhistwisdom #recovery #dharma #buddhadharmasangha #sober #buddhistpsychology

If we truly see an impermanent condition we’ll see that it’s permanent. It’s permanent in the sense that its subjection to change is unchanging. This is the permanence that living beings possess. There is continual transformation, from childhood through to old age, and that very impermanence, that propensity to change, is permanent and fixed. If you look at it like this your heart will be at ease. It’s not just you who has to go through this, it’s everyone.

“Sometimes we meet “spiritual” people who hold the attitude, Forget this world. Everything’s totally screwed up. I’m going to actualize a trance state that’s totally unrelated to what’s going on here.

Spiritual practice isn’t about escaping from the world; it’s about learning to live in it with a wise and compassionate perspective that brings harmony in our lives and the lives of others. We aim to be of great service and benefit to the world. A state of deep concentration is a nice break from a crazy world, but it doesn’t last forever. Plus, a trance state isn’t liberation; it will eventually end, and we’ll find ourselves back where we started. The proper motivation for cultivating single-pointed concentration is to be able to use it as a tool to improve all our other Dharma practices.

The spiritual people I respect the most are humble. They cultivate compassion and wisdom and don’t try to impress anyone with how spiritually advanced they are or how many far-out spiritual visions they have had. Instead, with compassion, they don’t hesitate to help others, and with wisdom, they know how to help them skillfully. Wouldn’t it be liberating to be free of self-centeredness and self-doubt?” #takerefuge #refugerecovery #recoveryispossible #wedorecover #dharmapunx #againstthestream #meditateanddestroy #sithappens #heavilymeditated #meditatedontselfmedicate #soberlife #odaat #onedayatatime #onebreathatatime #soberandfree #sobrietyrocks #theravadabuddhism #buddhism #agnosticbuddhism #fournobletruths #eightfoldpath #meditationeveryday #freedomthroughwisdom #buddhadharmasangha #engagedbuddhism #rightnowitslikethis #iloveyoukeepgoing #iedharmapunx #awakeneveryday #thubtenchodron
