Nov 12, 2023 - Practice in Difficult Times

Our practice is designed to help us bear that which is difficult or overwhelming—not to find the solution or fix the problem. It’s designed to help us be with the difficulty, to have the capacity to hold it, understand it, and learn to distinguish between what is human existence and conditionality and then what is my added layer on top of that? The Buddha’s Middle Way is to accept the truth of the human condition—that it’s difficult and painful, rough and messy. We live in a world based on greed, hatred, and delusion, but wishing it were not so brings an added layer of pain that makes the whole thing stressful.
