Dear fellow practitioners,
In a recent visit to Melbourne, Australia I had several opportunities to meet with large groups of city-dwelling lay-practitioners. Feeling the not uncommon energies of both dullness, tiredness and scattered-ness in the room, it seemed appropriate to try to offer some encouraging words which might help those in attendance to feel good about their life opportunities and practice, and to help them to re-energise and re-focus.
The qualities that will actually liberate us are initially quite subtle. We can overlook their profound value and importance. The truth is that we have everything we need right here in our minds and in our human capacity to Liberate ourselves from every type of suffering… if we are willing to do put forth the requisite consistent effort.
I hope that something in this talk might serve as an encouragement.
