    Buddha-Basics (Part IX) — Effortlessly Efforting Right

    The sixth branch of the Eightfold Path is Right Effort, the effort to put into Practice the links of the Path within our life… to keep on keepin’ on. We should be diligent, and stick with it.

    We persevere, even those times when we just don’t feel like making the effort. Right Intention is the aspiration to do so, while Right Effort is the will to make the day-by-day slog… But we also learn that, as “Just Sitting” Shikantaza, effort can be effortless, that we move ahead with nowhere to go… that every step of a steep climb is one step, and one step, and one stepa total arriving

    Remember: recording ends soon after the beginning bells; a sitting time of 20 to 35 minutes is recommended.

    Thanks Jundo, a very apt talk to keep the mind focussed at the beginning of the year. It was really cold when I went out to sit in my garage first thing this morning, but your reminder of right effort helped get out there to sit!


    Sat today (cold but motivated!)
