Buddhadharma : Fall 2009
95 fall 2 00 9 buddhadharma: the practitioner’s quarterly to list your center in the Network Directory, contact Carol millet: (toll-free) 1-877-422-8404 ext. 30, (outside north america, dial 01-902-422-8404) or email email@example.com DeaDliNes: • Winter 2009 / august 28, 2009 • Spring 2010 / november 6, 2009 the experience rather than their preferences. As a result, they find an ease in body awareness that’s not based on whether the experience is pleasant or unpleasant. There’s a sense of well-being in the body that comes from awareness of the body as a grounding force. It can interrupt the way the think- ing mind interprets experience. If you continue to do asana even though you’re injured, you can discover a wisdom that makes a huge difference. You can leave the reactive state of mind. Yes, it’s unpleasant, but it’s just unpleasant. That brings a kind of temporary freedom. Cyndi Lee: I ask people to see if they can distinguish between an interesting sensa- tion and pain. If someone says it’s pain, we stop, rewind, and work with it. But we also maintain the notion of “interest- ing sensation” throughout our yoga path, and you find that even as you get older and older and you have a lot of inter- esting sensations, you can avoid the big story about them and just note to your- self, “Oh, that’s interesting.” The instruc- tion for physical obstacles to practice seems to be: first be fully present with the obstacles and then look into them deeply. They may not be obstacles at all. BuddhadharMa: Just sensation. reggie ray: And sensation is aware of itself; there is no outside agent, as my teacher used to say. PhiLLiP Moffitt: It’s just experience. No self is created. reggie ray: All of what we’ve been talk- ing about, respecting the body, making room for it, and not exiting into mental judgment is what we would call maitri, love of our own personhood. And that is the basis for compassion for other people. Working with the body in a deep way is the ground of generating genuine compassion. It’s deeply based on acceptance of one’s own experience, not just an idea of doing something nice for someone else. With such close atten- tion to what’s happening in our experi- ence of being human, it’s unavoidable that we’re going to take the same atti- tude toward other people, welcoming, accepting, and being with them in the very same way. ➤ continued from page 61 VermoNt zeN CeNter po Box 880, shelburne, vt 05482.
