    SIT-A-LONG with JUNDO: THE GOOD FIGHT

    Some folks think that BUDDHISTS ARE MERELY PUSHOVERS. Well, sometimes we are "pushovers" ... allowing events to just push us over without resistance, roll past us, all until we (hopefully) roll back up!

    Other times ... like the Dalai Lama in his resistance to China, like the monks of Burma, like Gandhi (okay, not a 'Buddhist' really, but ya get the point), even like "Master Caine" in that old tv show ... we may need to push back, protest, resist, fight a good fight appropriate to the circumstances. Stilll, there is a way to do that, and not do that, and non-do that ... hopefully free of greed, anger and ignorance, free of all resistance even in the resistance. It might be against social injustice, it might be against an illness, it might be about something necessary and right in our own life that deserves standing up for (as well as sitting down on the Zafu for).

    HOW WE FIGHT THE GOOD FIGHT MAKES ALL THE DIFFERENCE IN THE WORLD.

    Today’s Sit-A-Long video follows at this link. Remember: recording ends soon after the beginning bells; a sitting time of 20 to 35 minutes is recommended.

    Wonderful timing that this should show up. Yesterday I left work frustrated. I've been asked by my management to take control of a team and help them become more organized. After observing them for a few weeks I've started to make suggestions of changes that could happen hoping to solicit some feedback. Yesterday I got pushback. Basically the team is happy the way things are and I got no support at all. Clearly not MLK or Dali Lama level conflict but this talk reminded me to not engage in anger.
