Buddhadharma : Fall 2016
fall 2 0 1 6 buddhadharma: the practitioner’s quarterly 23 We know that we do not progress on any healing path in a straight line. You may have a glimpse of openness and natural warmth for a person one day and find the next day that same person annoys you, and you may even speak harshly or think critically of them. Again and again we can turn toward our practice of meditation as support, first to connect with a true resting place within and then to bring up the annoy- ance or irritation we feel. Host this dif- ficulty, and as you continue to be still, silent, and spacious, the annoyance will naturally release, allowing you to look with fresh eyes upon the person. Con- nect with their suffering directly until natural warmth arises within you. In this way, gradually, you will begin to recognize your nature of mind that is freely and spontaneously compassion- ate. Send your questions to email@example.com thank you to our teachers Beginning with the Fall issue, you’ll be seeing different contributors to the Ask the Teachers column. we’d like to take this opportunity to express our heartfelt thanks to Narayan Helen Liebenson, Tenzin wangyal Rinpoche, and Sallie Jiko Tisdale. narayan helen liebenson has been an integral part of the Ask the Teachers column since the first issue in 2002.
