Vajrasattva Retreat 2005:
Motivations by Miles - Feb 19, 2005
"Your stream of consciousness is
like a highway, so keep the energy flowing."
Good morning. What is Samsara? This question has had me spinning
for days now. After all, understanding this creates urgency in one's
life. Urgency equally to having a fire on your head. I don't know
about you, but there's no fire on this head. So I dwelled on this
I noticed that when I hear one of our mother
sentient beings (fly) crash into a window, burn on a light or pass
away right in front of me that it is hard not to cringe. My bones
freeze and the knot in my heart won't even allow for a tear to fall.
It is the worst feeling, but it is not my suffering.
My suffering is my own inability to help. My
own imprisoned mind. Stuck in the mud of confusion.
"I wish I could help this bug. I wish I
could help all the oceans of sentient beings." I rejoice because
I know that what we're doing here is the best. We are doing the
best thing in the best place. Blessed with the greatest friends
and a peerless supreme spiritual leader.
Let's change this world today!
