Buddhadharma : Spring 2008
buddhadharma| 31 |spring 2008 let’s say we write down the word “sensual desire.” When sensual desire actually overwhelms the heart, it’s impossible for the written word to convey the same meaning as the reality. It’s the same with “anger.” We can write the letters on a blackboard, but when we’re actually angry the experience is not the same. We can’t read those letters fast enough, and the heart is engulfed by rage. This is an extremely important point. The theo- retical teachings are accurate, but it’s essential to bring them into our hearts. It must be internalized. If the dhamma isn’t brought into the heart, it’s not truly known. It’s not actually seen. Everything I’ve said so far is simply for you to listen to and think about. It’s just talk, that’s all. When people come to see me, I speak. These sorts of subjects aren’t the things we should sit around and gab about for hours. Just do it. Get in there and do it. It’s like when we call a friend to go somewhere: we invite them, and we get an answer. Then we’re off, without a big fuss. We say just the right amount and leave it at that. I can tell you a thing or two about meditation, because I’ve done the work. But you know, maybe I’m wrong. Your job is to investigate and find out for yourself if what I say is true. dAvidgoldes
