as i've mentioned before were
we're on we're on a new dharma wave now
we're trying to ride it a new wave
tom time could you move a little bit to your left side see your face move your body great thank you
so we're on a new dime away if can you hear me ten yes and so one word amusing for the new dharma wave is
the teaching of buddha nature

there is a good
a great
vehicle scripture called the nirvana scripture and in that scripture
it says something like all living beings
fully possess
are all living beings without exception possess the buddha nature

whereas tracy did she leave

and and then in another very important scripture it says
the buddha says now i see
all living beings fully possess the wisdom and the virtues of the buddha's
but because of misconceptions and attachments they don't realize it

and then there's a number of other
scriptures that also bring out this buddha-nature teaching or teaching
of what buddha nature is and
for whom that's an issue and yeah one my and that's why i might say now that buddha-nature is an issue
for all living beings
we have this buddha nature
but it's an issue
in the sense that
it needs to be realized
it's calling for realization

and the realization of it is buddhahood
so there's something about us that's calling us
to realized something about us
and the realization if when that realization is fulfilled we realize buddhahood
now the first computer just says all living beings
without exception have this buddha nature the second scripture says something slightly different it doesn't say buddha-nature but it it actually described with and nature
it says the boy says now i see all living beings fully possessed the wisdom and virtues of the buddha's
so the buddha's have perfect wisdom and they also have
virtus they have great compassion they have great skill to help people realize
that they also had this is that they possess this wisdom and these virtues
you know in a way to say the buddha's now i see all living beings are fundamentally pure
because this perfect wisdom is is fundamentally pure and this compassion of the buddha's is a pure compassion
you can maybe later asked me about what that pure compassion is but for now to say that the buddhist seized the buddha wakes up and sees that we all possess the wisdom of the buddha's
and also the virtues of the buddha however
there is some kind of problem there what is the problem attachment and misconceptions are misconceptions which lead us to think we can attach to something
the wisdom which we possess is is the mind which realizes that there's nothing to attach to or unattached to that's the wisdom
we possess that wisdom however we also have these misconceptions
which we kind of make and we believe them so we think we can attach to things to life and we do and we suffer meantime we've also have this perfect wisdom and great compassion
so then the buddhist says well i guess i have to teach people because they don't they didn't understand
that they possess his wisdom and that does nothing to attach to
so we have with us today on man i would say is young maybe he feels old do feel young or old jared
yeah when i first met you you are even younger
right yeah i met him a while ago he was younger than and is now jared is get is getting older
or as we sometimes say your is not getting any younger
but still from a certain perspective he's young
he's young
but is getting older
is your name tony tony looks young too
but to me but tony's tony's not getting any younger

andrew he looks got a young too
but he's not getting any younger
and i could go on because almost everybody here it looks young to me
anyway jared had a horrendous
automobile accident that he was in and his dad was not in the accident
but it was almost as bad as being in the accident because his boy was in it
so that big trauma to adjust to this young man's body and he's here back with us today we're so happy to see you
our prayers are coming true

and jerry's said to me i say something you said to me i was so all of em
jerry says to me
there was so much support
it was overwhelming
these is something like that
and you can also continue you can say you didn't say this but all he can say the support for you is overwhelming and to support for all of us is overwhelming
the support for us is overwhelming
there's no way to attach to it it's overwhelms any attachment it overwhelms any ideas you have about it like for example the idea that is overwhelming it overwhelms that too
the realization that we are overwhelmed
by support and also
that we overwhelmingly support
all the eggs
all beings overwhelmingly support us we overwhelmingly support all beings that's perfect wisdom that's the wisdom of the borders
we all have that we are all we are that we are we are being overwhelmed by support and we overwhelm the universe with support
that's buddha's wisdom and buddhism virtues and
we have ideas misconceptions we have a deluded mind
which projects
this overwhelming support and this being overwhelmingly supportive we have a mind diluted mind which projects on this fundamental purity which nothing can attach to or get away from
it projects on it and makes it into manageable packages like betsy and tony and terry and tom
we have a mind which can turn a not not turn which can project on this life this inconceivable
all pervading all pervaded life which we all possess which we all are
project upon it with imagination and then believe that the projection is
what's there
the buddha nature is not just
the boot is that we possess put his wisdom is not just buddha's wisdom it's not just the way things really are
although it is that it's the way things really are
together with the way they really aren't
it's such miss
in association with pollution with delusion which defilement
with staining
it's reality together with the
a powerful
fantasy machine
like frightening for it said human beings are
powerful fantasy machines
or actually see he said that they're powerful separate fantasy machines
he was right about them being powerful man the machines he was not right there were separate
we are inseparable powerful sound of the fantasy machines we include we include all the other fantasy machines and we are included in them
bunny where he got the fantasy machine that part down read very well thank you so much

to make a long story short
this this realm this yeah the realm of are deluded mind where we make our life into little pipsqueak versions of our life where we diminish our
life into a manageable package
that rome is calling us for compassion and if we respond to the call fully
again and again and again
that realm of misconceptions and attachments will actually innocence
drop away
but not by getting rid of it
but by letting it be
it really is
is that even the imagination that things don't include everything includes everything
even my imagination that your life is not my life even that false imagination actually includes everything and is included in everything
if we just let delusion be will realize enlightenment
we already have reality
we just need to let unreality completely beyond reality and that's really
it takes a lot of training
because unreality often says get outta my face
somebody told me
she was looking at dumb a flower arrangement which the people in berkeley gave me last tuesday night
right tracy
right charlie
right linda wirth linda to she didn't come
right murray give me a nice flower arrangement and i put it on the table in my house and somebody said to me
people were so many people are kind to you you're spoiled rotten

did you see the flowers were yesterday she wasn't do understand it but you could have you could have said you know yours people are so kind to you
and then i saw also tracy gave me a cheesecake made cheesecake from me and everybody else in the class
and also the mightiest kick out of sparkling it and the sparkles burned my hand
but not do know not too badly
i'm okay
what am i talking but i'm talking about overwhelming support that's mitt and then i'm spoiled rotten
i am nothing but overwhelming support
that's what i am i what i really am is i'm overwhelmed by infinite support and also none of that but i'm overwhelmed by giving myself to all beings that's what i really fundamentally m and other and you are too and that and new and and that's perfectly completely
the pure cause it's overwhelmed
however all around this
fundamental purity there's a coding of being spoiled rotten
so yes i am spoiled rotten but that just to that just a polluted coating over my fundamental over over the fact of being totally inconceivably supported by all beings and
i do the same for all beings and i want to keep into i want to realize that i know everybody supporting me in just amazingly and i want to
i want to be worthy of that which i am by remembering that i'm doing the same for others meantime i'm spoiled rotten

and what is in my spend my rotten spoiled this is calling for what
is calling me for compassion which also means is calling me to realize this buddha nature which is called buddhahood
so we've all got the buddha nature which is this
marvelous being overwhelmed and marvelously over we overwhelm the universe and we are overwhelmed by it we've got that and we've got this corruption
realizing that is buddha hard which is
just being overwhelmed and being overwhelming
no longer
ah associated with this
pollution this misconception and attachment however although no longer associated with it totally
accepting it
totally accepting this corruption
totally accepting the suffering is the end of suffering

trying to get rid of suffering of course is more suffering compassion doesn't try to get rid of suffering
wakes the suffering up
so i've been having trouble i've told you about it before what the at the end of this talk we will chat the bodhisattva vows and the second one is beings are no second one is do he said delusions are an exhausts
notable but that word delusion is really a kind of like but again i a deluded translation of the original characters the original characters our afflictions and the afflictions our greed hate and delusion but for at zen center in the sixties
you know the all the hippies who didn't want to hear about the about greed and hatred delusion they could handle
he managed
so we said delusion but really the original character means
greed hate and delusion also means worldly desire it means desire for something other than being totally overwhelmed by the support of the universe and something big in our into something other than being into how you are supporting all beings that the world they desire
gate so those but those are there's three of a minute or is infinite numbers of afflictions
and then he says i vowed to end them but now i'd like to say
these afflictions are inexhaustible i vow to exhaust them
not end them but come to the end of them i've vowed to come to the end of them by moving in them
in the in the text called ganji corn there's a place where it says
something like
wishing to come to the end of the element without moving in it they will not realize the end of it know that part
the way you realize the end of your element is by moving in it
and r anime our element is delusion and by moving in delusion
we will come to the end of it and come into the end of it
if the enlightenment enlightenment is in the middle of delusion coming to the end of delusion by moving in it by practicing compassion in it

so i'm already chalk long time and i think i'll conclude with a story
you want to hear story
well here's the story the story is
about to ancient chinese
buddhist or buddha's disciples one's named dung shot liang j
and the other one's name is sung me some may is a older than junction on there are good friends and so some me was like don't show and uncle dharma uncle and he he sometimes is referred to as uncle me so the name of this case is
i don't know what something like
uncle me in the white rabbit
his case fifty six of the book of serenity so these two people are walking somewhere in china about
twelve hundred years ago
more than a thousand years ago they are walking around china's and they're walking on some kind of road i think and a white rabbit runs across the road
an uncle me says swift
the younger master
how so
uncle me says it's like a commoner
a prime minister
he like in the time from going from one side of the road to the other for peasant to become a prime minister of china that would be like it's like that
junction i said
such a venerable old gentleman and you still talk like that
an uncle me says well how about you and don't shine said after generations
of nobility temporarily fallen into poverty

from beginning this time
the universe has been such has been just the way it is

there is temporary falling into poverty
fallen into
delusion about what the world is about what our life is

as it's temporary you know temporary like moment by moment
each moment is a temporary falling into delusion after beginning us
reality an endless reality
it's not so don't show i'm saying it's not like you've got this person
who's going to
become a buddha or this peasant who is gonna become a prime minister
it's that you've got a person
who was gonna wake up
to their buddha-nature
not by in not by going through the process of becoming a prime minister but going to the process of being kind to the delusions
that are part of this person
so on china
if you're if you're a peasant excuse me for saying so but i must admit that the peasants man
if you're a peasant man ah if used met somebody who had a book
and would teach you how to read it you could read it
which would be very nice for you maybe anyway if you studied the books
and study the books you you could get it even a peasant could get a chance to take a test on the books
and if you pass the test
you can become a minister and then there was a next level of tests and if you studied more you can take him next test and passed you become a higher minister and this process you could buy your efforts gradually become
a prime minister
i don't know if actually there are examples but i think there might be examples of peasants who became prime ministers
and on is pointing out that it's possible
just like this book to go from being a peasant to a buddha
but don't i'm saying no it's not go from being a peasant to a buddha it's waking up to your already
the buddhist reality and you're temporarily not getting it
and each moment you don't get it is another temporary
and being kind being kind to temporarily fallen in to
spoiled rotten
temporarily spoiled rotten
or which is kind nice to be spoiled rotten the other one is to be abused rotten
to be abused
temporarily falling into being abused and being feeling poor
it's temporary and if you can be kind
to being temporarily poor for whatever reasons
that's your temporarily poor
you can wake up to that you for a long time
have been booed as child

now we can just forget about the story i just told you and everything i said before that and just say well let's be kind to our delusion but maybe it's helpful to tell you this so that you understand that what you're working with his delusion rather than what you're working with is to get rid of the delusion
which would be kind of disorient you
and not gonna get a lot of people don't even know that you're working with delusion so
we could just say be kind
to everything
that and sometimes that's what we do say but i am today i'm saying what you have available to be kind to is basically you're delusional you're deluded view of what to be kind to want to be kind to all beatings but you can't see all beings but what you can see is your dilute
and version of them
moment by moment you're temporarily fallen into poverty and more by moment you see a poverty stricken version of all beings and each being
each being is overwhelmed by the whole universe but you can't see that i can't see that each being is supporting the whole universe i can see that you can see that
what i can see his ex a major reduction of that
and that major reduction of the way all beings are his delusion and that delusion is calling for compassion
and that delusion is calling for compassion as a warm-up that delusion is calling to be
understood for what it is
which is a delusion and that delusion
is supported by the entire universe our delusions are supported by the whole universe
h diluted person is supported by the whole universe and aged person is calling
for great compassion so it can so that there can be realization that this delusion is calling for
great compassion and his delusion is inseparable from reality
which realizes are buddha-nature so we already got the buddha nature which is reality
everybody's got reality and everybody is rotten to the core
everybody's completely pure and everybody's diluted and thus two are inseparable that's er that's it we've got and realizing that is buddhahood
so we are being called to for compassion and we are and then once the compassion is going were called for wisdom were being asked to be compassionate and we're being asked to become buddhas
the world asking us to become buddhas
what like that song always find to be a genius of course but less not put the horse before the cart
we're being called to be a genius
our genius is our buddha nature were being called to be that buddha nature
so fully that we realize it and become buddha and it's fine to be a genius but let's not put the genius before
been kind to the diluted person
and being kind of the alerted person will realize diluted person is inseparable from buddha
but were temporarily fallen into poverty
and our poverty is calling for compassion

and i'm being overwhelmed by compassion
all the time and so are you good
and we're being called to get with the program
and it's hard for us because sometimes the way recalled is
ah in the form of somebody trying them
control us or bully us
we don't realize somehow when a bullet comes the bully is saying
would you please practice compassion with me
when i'm bearing down on you so roughly
would you please
be generous to man tender with me when i'm not being tender with you and i'm telling you not to be tender with me

doesn't sound like like that it sounds like
you know
something else when get outta here do it i say
and if you don't
i'm an archer or even i am going to i'm hurting you know
cause i hate you
i don't want compassion from you i just wanna kill you
it's hard to realize that that's calling for compassion
and we have
stories in this tradition and other divisions to of where people
are being
almost almost killed her on the verge of being killed and they don't get fooled by it and they come back with blessing
i've heard stories like that like when gandhi was shot
well i don't know exactly what point and happened whether the guy was pointing the gun any blessed him or the guy pulled the trigger and he was shot and a blessed and buddies blessed him
he blessed the the murderer
but i think actually he was blessing before the murderer showed up he just walking along blessing he was doing blessing practice and if you do blessing practiced and sometimes when the when a murderer shows up you just continue
if you try to wait until you a murderer comes to start your blessing practice
it's not recommended
do it now with these nice people i actually they do it now with these people who you have delusions of niceness about
it's easier to start with these people have been compassion with these people isn't it easy to be compassion with these people
these people who actually believe that you wanted that you were doing that for them and they kind of know that are asking you to be compassionate don't you kind of know that you're asking everybody here to be compassionate to you do you know that
i'm asking you to be compassionate to me and you're asking me to be compassionate to you is that clear
yeah but if i start out in other ways you might
i'm a know what you might
it kind of not to none
not understand that you might think you're just being cruel
and up
i just heard that ah a buddhist teacher ah was now on what's the word
cited for abuse by many
it's possible that many or all of those women
spoke of the abuse
that they experienced with him
as a acts of compassion that they all did this as an offering of compassion it's possible that they realize oh he's been calling for compassion all this time and wait now we're gonna give it to him by by by letting him know that
we experienced his behavior as abusive were going to do that for him now we were unable to do it before now we can do it
so the compassionate response can look many ways
and i i could go on for a long time telling you stories about people who felt called for compassion and they totally we're ready to give the compassion and they gave it and the person that gave it to who asked for it do
didn't understand that that was that didn't understand they are asking for compassion and they didn't understand that the response that got risk for compassion
that's fundamentally what we're doing all day long as we're practicing compassion towards everybody and everybody's practicing compassion towards us that's what's really going on that's our fundamental purity and
superficially we have these little
stories about what's going on which sometimes it's i'm like this these people are being compassionate to me
at story is correct in a way but what you're seeing why you tell the story is not the way they're being compassionate to you the weather being compassionate you is overwhelming you can't say anything about hall compassion everybody has been do you can say whatever you want it never reaches it and if
you believe it it's a delusion
and vice versa
you're doing this for all beings

so i'm gonna stop and not going to tell you all the stories about this
per socket yes i did you is a something
please do just wanted to offer that i notice myself thirty takes a lot of compassion with myself to
yeah if i can't listen to everything i'm thinking if i don't listen to everything i'm thinking as a call for compassion
that sort of makes it difficult to understand it everything i think other people are saying is calling for compassion
like somebody took ten he recently
there's so many cries for compassion
i i just can't do it
i just can't do it
is calling for compassion
so when people are calling for new passion use it i can't stand as call that's another call
which only you can hear because it's a new return of so please help me a man and then you say i can't help him so if you can be compassionate i can't help him he's asking for too much
then you might be that you might realize that you can respond to my amazingly outrageous request
because you can be kind to i can't i can't do that what he's asked me to do i can't a get good
was cries i guess the crimes the cries or gifts their their skillful means of the universe stimulating us to become buddha

if you if you don't save some the pretty sentimental know our story
could it be
wisdom as a little packet me this time to say cat
that's also
true that goes to his past five years
i can't do it
is i wouldn't say it's wisdom but i would say it's skilled means wisdom uses the means of i can't do it to test to see if you can be compassionate to that
so wisdom is pushing you to widen your compassion
so now
i i can do it
i i can practice compassion and maybe so yeah again and was definite wisdom to also offering that as a means but it doesn't just offer yes i can er yes i want to be compassionate pit offers that's too much i can like i'm people say if i practice compassion to
and i'll turn into a doormat people will take advantage of me if i can practice compassion to them that is another message and skill and beans from wisdom seeing if you can not be tricked by that one
so it's it's more like skill and means than compassion but it's coming from compassion amazing to me it's morse like skill and means rather than wisdom a skill and means come from wisdom so all these challenges
are coming to help you expand your your compassion
who's struggling a little bit with when know when to say no is yes which seems like it takes skill and means of realize that take some
wisdom or wise wisdom about yourself to say no
i'm i'm just hearing compact i'm here with you're saying is continually yes
so putting my head going up her eyes
this does not mean you have to defend yourself
didn't keep talking when i go like this
i think you've got the point they're probably mississippian
if you asked me to do something like would you please give me up
a pint of blood
and the thought comes with my my know

k know i hear i hear that with compassion i hear your requests with compassion maybe then is it and then beep
i've done my job with her request i i listened to it with compassion may be wholeheartedly but my whole hearted listening to her request for a pint of blood does not mean that the thought no will not arise in my mind
does mean and doesn't mean that it will
but i did try to listen to her
request for a pint of blood with compassion that was my aspiration and i gave it a try and i felt pretty good about listening to it and then guess what happened on know came up where i don't come from
i don't know i don't know i'm to speak for myself i would she asked me for a pint of blood were dot com from i don't know
i don't know how shit that happened but when it did there was compassion for it and i was very
grateful for that and now instead of a request for blood we have a know coming up
and there could be compassion for the know equally wholehearted
as the compassion from the request for the blood
and then after that what will happen i don't know
but something will another request another call will come
and that call is calling for compassion and there will be a compassionate response and if i could like be there fully for that request the that is the compassion is there is there any way but i real is realized by that big present for it
so no
could come up in the mind of a person whose wholeheartedly listening to a call a request and also yes can come up
and there can be compassionate with the know
and there can be compassionate with the yes
and again i said there can be i'm also saying there is
there's always compassion with me i have a quarter of blood and you said a pint before
but the us
so she said a pint now she says a court and what comes up my mind have you just doubled a request
may have a court i don't know where that comes from but it's calling for compassion
uw request i don't know where they're coming from
but as gone for compassion if we learn this
we will realize our buddha nature
we will realize what we can't see now is that everybody
is calling me for compassion and everything about me is calling for compassion
and getting with their practice you will wake up to your buddha-nature you will become buddha
so awesome but challenger very challenging when you say accord when you say a pint and a nice important and is a gallon
you know and i every time you every time you to tell me how much blood you want no matter what home no matter how much blood you as for
i always respond
i've always do
i can't not and i don't do by my own power the whole universe makes me
a supports me to respond to every request you have
and my response is not under my control it's under the control of the whole universe
and i can wake up to that by being compassionate of that process

yes to take that another step there's a kind of yes or know that comes from a place where i might think that i a person has a rural i need to power and rule says i must say yes or yes
no okay
well when when somebody makes requests of you you hear that and your compassionate towards it like somebody asked me for a pint of blood so my ruled as a pint okay accords not like the railroad so she as for a pint i say fine i checked my rule
and if my role says pints okay
also not part of my role is we have to do it in a certain kind of medical facility that what they know how to do it i'm not gonna let you do it that's one of my rules
i'll give you about a blurb and i'm not to let you drive in the kitchen
it's not really when i road you can draw blood from me in the kitchen but i lean my not appropriate
no lending and the tension has projects it's against the rules or this plant and temple okay with anyway
does your request and there's a response what's the response their responses i think this corresponds to my rules
i could be the response they made a request i gotta and my rule and as a rule is as this is works
this works is also calling for compassion
how but they're making request and that comes up for this doesn't correspond to the rules this is not an appropriate request but that that bot that delusion this is not appropriate request it's calling for compassion
so people make requests of us
we have responses the requests are calling for compassion our responses are calling for compassion
and of our responses are fine i'll give i'll give you everything or of my responses fine i'll give you something but not everything are fine i'm not going to give you anything i'm not going to give you anything is calling for compassion i'll give you something is calling for compassion i'll give you everything everything is calling for compa
caution everything
will wake up to that
as the precepts also comfort and hasn't the precepts are climb for compassion yes these are precepts about our nature and are calling us to realize our nature
and this the the the buddha nature precepts
our wisdom in the form of a request
so we will realize wisdom

and something that
can you hear her in that room career because you hurt head okay
no response is all sellers no response is also response in other words there is always a response yes yes yes yes
silence is a response buddha the historical buddha was big on responding with silence
so they called him mr silence
at attended
i went one of the names for a sage is silent one
the and the the book does the silent ones are always responding and they often respond by being silent but the sad ones off to also respond sometimes by been quite talkative
i'm right with you yes
you homer homer
have you done yes i can thank you betty
ah i just in this moment i'm having a block to the word can pass the block to block let's just skip over the block it's fine to be a genius of course but less man skip over the block the block is calling for compassion
what do you mean by comparison for like
hello block
welcome bullock buddhism's you know i am just idea that buddhism not about blocks it's about liberation anyway and then block shows up
welcome block
you not to like the block
and yet wanted to hate the block but you might like the block but if you like the block than the blogging the blog is calling for compassion if you don't like the block the not like in the block is calling for compassion but maybe before we get into liking and disliking let's just right off not mr chance hello blog
like when somebody says to me you're spoiled rotten hello spoiled rotten me swelled it's not like these wild braga new like nice boil i am you're right i am spoiled rotten you people have spoiled me rotten
welcome that you know grab year
a worthless practitioner
not only you spoil rotten but you don't deserve all this kindness you're not you're you're not worthy of it you're a rat you're a bummer
you're a lazy bum as matter of fact some people call me lazy bum but you know
generally speaking you can try it on me i'm kind of ready for that one
ice i kind of can see it's really funny but maybe you don't want me to think it's funny some may have to keep saying until i i say well you know that really hurts
did you bring a block yeah so your first of all you're welcome it you give it gifts and the main give you get the main gift that you have an opportunity to give his thank you for coming very much mr block miss block you're welcome
him to be here i don't like you or dislike you
or maybe i do dislike you but even though i do dislike you i would still welcome you
gracious hostess welcomes people she doesn't like and people she likes
and i welcome i want to welcome everybody including miss block
and then next i move on to practicing relating to them blocked and i've allowed to bear to be tender with it and careful with it because it was his calling me for compassion is calling me for generosity has calling me for tenderness because the block to be
scene and to be seen yeah but again it's actually go out it's ultimately calling for to be seen as it is relevant seen as i see it
but you're not again it to see things as it is is to be a genius
and people wanted to be geniuses and see them as they are but it in a way can we won't be able to seize up people as they are if we're not generous with the way they appear and they appear to be a block like this person is a block to my happiness
this person's a blog to my good reputation etcetera i might think and i can be kind to him that attitude and also to the block and be careful and tentative and tender with it and respectful of it and then be patient with it because blogs can be kind of uncomfortable
ol especially if they're sitting on her face
are pushing us into a corner we can be physically in but the thing is really blocking us as our own to in mind which which is having us in
so yeah so i'm being patient when my own deluded mind which is suffocating me
generous tender patient and now that took a lot of energy so now i have to like or gets more energy to continue on my path to what to saying this person to seeing this block which is calling me to be see so now
have they say i really would like to practice compassion towards this block and i would like to see this blog for what it really is so now i'm to have to like carousell i get and i'm to read
fresh my energy now to take the next step
and the where east's refresh my energy is to think how great it would be not only to be generous and careful and patient but to see reality in this block
and i'm feeling from energy to do that now
and now i bet it in the next step actually before the seating will be to be still to to be relaxed to be open to the block to be flexible with the block and com what the block
do not move at all with the block and but only not even to not move at all but to realize not moving at all because it's already there the not moving so i have a lot of enthusiasm to realize being with this block
as an act of compassion with the block not to try to get rid of it
i'm just gonna be with a completely combine openly tenderly you wouldn't confess and repent that you have to block the block isn't the blog is not something to compare confess that the thing to confess and repent is number one i confess and repent i was not generous with
the bullet came and i said get outta here
i forgot to practice generosity i'm sorry i would confess
getting distracted from what the block was calling for the block was calling for compassion i i got distracted from practicing compassion towards the block
and i instead of like welcoming i thought i'd like to get rid of you mr block i want i want to get rid of you mr block is not coming to me to ask me to get rid of it mr block is coming to me to be seen and liberated
and on the path of liberation i'm going to have to be really compassionate to block but if i forget and or get tricked by the block and think that the block actually would like me to annihilated well as i confess my deluded mind got in there and distracted me from the practice of
of how to deal with my deluded mind which says this is a block rather than the might awakened and educated my which scepticism skillful means of the borders
to wake us up
like a says in the chat we sometimes do at the end of the day talking about all these difficulties had come that their skill and means to wake us up
and if i was come if i was compassionate in the form of generosity towards the block
but i wasn't gentle does it i wasn't gentle with it i wasn't tender with it
it tenderly came to me and said please be compassionate to me i'm a block
would somebody please let me be and is a yeah
and your tender with it and then your but an end and it ends and a bar committee and say i want compassion but i know i'm a difficult customer i know it's hard to be with me because i'm blocking everything like every time you try to say something i interrupt you i know i'm trouble
but i still want compassion even on a troublemaker
and i know it's painful but i want you to be compassionate with how painful am please and you and you go okay i'm gonna be here with you i'm not going to try to get rid of you i'm going to try to practice compat at compassion in the form of like being really being here with you not trying to make you better or worse g
just talk that patients and now i'm an early start working at my
energy could the next piece next two steps you can take a lot of energy
and i wanted to this i wanted to the next few steps and i want and i want to do the previous steps and i've done him nine ready to generate energy and really be calm and see
that's what the blocks are calling for their kind from
great compassion and are calling for liberation so they can be bought it to
so nothing any different enough
yeah and not being any different and by not being in a different you realize that this is otherwise
this is not just this this is the whole universe in the form of this
and my mind which makes the whole universe into this is the whole universe making this
and then you wake up to your original pure nature by dealing with the
the corruption or the defilement of block
hindrance obstacles evil
