Johnny Stork7,288Spirituality & Self Development CircleWe all strive towards various personal, professional and for many, spiritual goals in life. In our increasingly crowded and interconnected planet, we are often reminded of how each of out lives intersect and how each of us share many of the same values and needs. Many of these shared values and shared needs included the welfare of others, the welfare of the entire planet and the welfare of all living creatures.One way to think of what it means to be "spiritual" or concerned with "self" development is simply to be concerned with something, or someone, beyond yourself, beyond the personal. Holding a transpersonal world-view.The people in this circle share these values, these interests in developing personally, professionally and spiritually for the sake of all people as well as themselves. I am honoured to share this circle of humanitarian, compassionate, learned and transpersonally inclined friends. #transpersonalpsychology   #spirituality   #selfdevelopment   #positivepsychology  2014-02-05 00:55:384909514CC G+

"Equanimity, or balance of mind, is... the unspoken wisdom that allows us to broaden our caring beyond our own inner circle, making the practices of loving kindness, compassion, and sympathetic joy true expressions of a generous spirit.

Without equanimity, we might offer friendship only when our
offering was acknowledged and appreciated, or only when the person responded in kind.

We might offer compassion to ourselves only when we weren’t overcome by pain, and offer compassion to others only when we weren’t overcome by their suffering. And we might offer sympathetic joy only when we did not feel threatened or envious.

When we cultivate equanimity, our tremendous capacity to connect with others can blossom, for we don’t feel the need to reject or cling to anything that happens in life."

Alan Wallace will be at Upaya next week. Join his dharma talk on Wednesday, seminar on Thursday, and weekend intensive retreat on Upaya Program: SETTLING THE MIND IN ITS NATURAL STATE: Discovering the Innate Bliss, Luminosity,...
www.upaya.org

From Alan: The entire environment we perceive around us arises, in part, in dependence upon our sense faculties. The environment we experience does not truly exist "out there." Sight is dependent upon visual faculties, hearing is dependent upon auditory faculties, and tactile sensations depend on nerve endings. Psychologically, all that we experience is dependent upon ourselves. We do not experience anything purely objectively. The arising and perceiving of experience is co-emergent between ourselves and the world around us. Yet, the deep belief persists that the world really exists "out there" now and eons before we were born.... more »

"For awhile, I was really quite averse to the word "retreat" because it struck me as failure. You can't handle the world, well then, retreat. You just lost a battle, retreat... But I've gotten comfortable with it because a retreat, just looking at the word itself, doesn't necessarily mean failure or you can't handle it, it's rather a time of creative withdrawal into a more simple setting, a context to tap into inner resources to revitalize, to re-envision..."

"All sentient beings are essentially Buddha.
Like ice and water,
There is no ice separate from water;
No sentient beings who are not Buddha.

Not knowing how near Truth is,
Beings seek it far away, what a pity!
Like one immersed in water crying out in thirst..."

The Origin of The Heart Sutra

Episode Description: In this dharma talk, Sensei Kaz offers a detailed and fascinating exploration of the history of the Heart Sutra. However, before his history lesson he spends a few moments discussing how the sutra expresses the concepts of singularism and pluralism. Are they in opposition? Are the dual or non-dual? He then suggests that life can be seen as a dance with singularism on one foot and pluralism on the other.

www.upaya.org From Peter Matthiessen: “Zen is really just a reminder to stay alive and to be awake. We tend to daydream all the time, speculating about the future and dwelling on the past. Zen practice is about appreciating your life in this moment. If you are truly aware of five minutes a day, then you are doing pretty well. We are beset by both the future and the past, and there is no reality apart from the here and now.”

Join Sharon Salzberg, with Tsoknyi Rinpoche and me for The Great Tributaries Retreat at Upaya: http://www.upaya.org/programs/event.php?id=1061

One day as my teacher, John Friend, was demonstrating a pose, he made an awkward-looking movement, then rebalanced. Coming out of it he asked, "What just happened?" One by one, my classmates offered a Sanskrit name for that extra little twist. Finally, John turned to me and repeated his question, "What just happened?" I replied, "To be honest, I think you fell." "You're right," he said. "I fell. Then I started over. That's good yoga. . ."

Often we can achieve an even better result when we stumble yet are willing to start over, when we don't give up after a mistake, when something doesn't come easily but we throw ourselves into trying, when we're not afraid to appear less than... more »

Join us this weekend Apr 18, 2014 — Apr 20, 2014
for TOUCHING THE EARTH AND SKY:

This weekend retreat gives us the rare opportunity to drop into the deep questions related to time, life, death, rebirth, and no birth, no death. At Upaya, we touch into the story of the life of the Buddha, his suffering and awakening; we look at this in relation to the season of Easter and Passover and how compassion and wisdom unfold in our lives.

Saturday we spend in the ancient Pueblo ruins and cave dwellings of Tsankawi and meditate on what it means to live a life that is both finite and infinite, separate and connected.

June 4 - June 8, we will explore the self through the experience of bhavana or cultivation, bringing forth the great mind qualities of this earth: stability, resourcefulness, resilience, absorption, inwardness, impermanence, interconnectedness. We touch into these qualities through sitting meditation, mountain walking, gardening, and learning about the deep history of the earth in the southwest and her cultures, the vastness of applied vision in the act of gardening, and the truth of the mountains tell as we walk amongst them. Come join us for this extraordinary program!

"So, I said to Ram Dass, come on over to where U Pandita is staying because it’s the Buddha’s birthday, you know, we’ll celebrate the Buddha’s birthday. So, we went over, and it turned out that the way the Burmese monks like to celebrate the Buddha’s birthday was by having us sit silently watching them eat, silently, and then having us sit silently while they got up and left the room. So Ram Dass turned to me and said, 'You Buddhists really know how to throw a party.'”

Reality? What's So Good About Reality, Anyway?

Episode Description: Ray Olson discusses what he considers a deep mystery: reality. What is reality? How do we perceive it? Even if we are able to perceive it, does it not last for just a moment? Ray begins his exploration of reality by looking at it is opposite: delusion. Delusion is all of our thoughts, dreams, illusions or ideas. Basically anything that we conceptualize is delusional.

Ray offers the story of Fayan’s Not Knowing. Fayan was on a pilgrimage. Dizang asked, “What is the purpose of your pilgrimage?” Fayan said, “I don’t know.” Dizang said, “Ah! Not knowing is most intimate.”

"I have been travelling to India in recent years, working with Ambedkarite Buddhists, peoples who used to be classified as “untouchable,” caught in an ancient and oppressive web of caste. Based on that experience I offer here a concise view of the suffering of caste as a sign of the First Noble Truth in our world, in confidence that eventually we will see how this suffering itself offers impetus for liberation. Our Buddhist sisters and brothers in India are not there yet. We are not there yet, in the crumbling edifice of empire. But on a clear day we can catch a glimpse of that Beloved Community. We can try to move towards it."
