The Buddha’s encouragement to investigate the neutral of experience— not just the positive and negative—is important here. White entitlement ren- ders an entire realm of existence neu- tral to the privileged perceiver. We have a responsibility to cultivate a keen ear and eye for the neutral, which means we must educate ourselves in the ways mentioned above without giving in to defensiveness, judgment, or resistance. Again, we must listen, not as growing experts but as humble students of the dharma. By realizing the experience of others as our own, we come to see that the neutral experience of privilege is maintained only by excluding from our lives the pain of those oppressed. Only through inclusion are we made whole. Taking on racial hierarchy will bring us face to face with rage and hatred of all kinds and involve risking social exile from white society. To do this, we must root ourselves deeply in our vows and practice. If our bodhisattva vow to liberate all beings does not also include liberation from ideologies whose raison d’être is the exploitation and domina- tion of vast numbers of beings, what does it really mean? The world transformation for which we chant, pray, bow, and meditate will only come to pass when we fully realize there is no living from love that does not include an urgency to end harm and ensure liberation for all. And there is no thorough liberation not dependent on fearlessly living from love. Thankfully, meditation allows us to take full respon- sibility for our minds, but it is the bodhi- sattva vow and our turning toward the liberation of all that allows us to take full responsibility for our hearts. When it comes to white supremacy and the harm it continues to cause all of us, we white Buddhists must give up the privi- lege of sitting this one out. ➤ Waking up to Whiteness continued from page 61
