Buddhadharma : Spring 2014
8 BUDDHADHARMA: THE PRACTITIONER’S QUARTERLY SPRING 2 0 1 4 meditating together. People wake up more easily when they can talk about what’s real for them. 2. Look behind the “no trespassing” sign. Everyone has something they have decided not to look at, and we might not know where we are not look- ing. What’s behind your no trespassing sign? 3. Speak from the heart. Don’t talk bullshit. Say something real, not something impressive. When I speak from the heart, I allow myself to know what is important to me. When we are afraid to say something, it’s not so much other people we are afraid of, it’s that we’re afraid of what we ourselves might think. 4. Listen with your whole body. Listening means doing less. When we’re not trying to influence the other person in any way, we are simply present. Then a vast peace appears. Gratitude, the moon, and the stars enter the room. Listening is a form of love. It’s a way to keep company with each other in the night. 5. When all the voices are in the room, it’s a good day. We invite people to speak who normally stay silent. People can trust their own moves and be inter- ested in their own lives. If we want to wake up, we probably will. 6. New people count. Even before we begin, we might not be doing it wrong. The person who just walked in has something amazing to say, and it’s good if there’s no waiting period before they can jump in. 7. Fewer rules equals more innovation. If I’m afraid to say the wrong thing, or bow the wrong way in the meditation hall, I’m worried about approval and I don’t take risks. Meditation changes speech, and speech changes meditation. The koans open up. Suddenly everyone has a beau- tiful face, and we are more forgiving and probably smarter too. Enlightenment is a point of view and it’s also something we do together. An old friend said, “I had a hole in my heart for years and years, and now I don’t.” ®
