I have kind of adopted a guru, for meditation. Yongey Mingyur Rinpoche. My short lesson tonight is on suffering.

Suffering in Sanskrit I think means unsatisfied, or inability to satisfy. If we do not notice and make ourselves aware of the ways we are not satisfied (i.e. Pains in our body etc) then we will think that we ARE this suffering. And we will live in suffering. like one jumps into and flows down a river and thinks there is no way to escape.

But if we pay attention to the ways we are unsatisfied, concentrate on them, make ourselves conscious of them, then we make them separate from our “selves”. We do not feel helpless, the momentum of the river does not trap us or prevent us from standing on solid ground, so to speak…

Tomorrow I will meditate on the feelings of dis- or in-satisfaction I have (in my body…in my mind…) and see what happens…

Check this out if your are so inclined.

Sweet dreams.
