    SIT-A-LONG with JUNDO: An URGENT ANGO CAUTION!

    .
    I would like to offer an important reminder and CAUTION to ALL THOSE UNDERTAKING ANGO, RAKUSU SEWING FOR JUKAI and such at Treeleaf ...


    ... both those who say "it is all going well" ... and those who say "it is not going well" ...

    ... those who say that "all has been smooth as silk" ... and those who have encountered bumps and places to trip ...

    ... those who say they have met every goal they set for themselves ... and those who have not.


    Do not forget about "Goalless Goals", about having no place to fall even when we trip and fall! There is no place not the "place for Ango" when lived as such!



    BE CAREFUL WHAT YOU SAY!


    Today’s Sit-A-Long video follows at this link. Remember: recording ends soon after the beginning bells; a sitting time of 15 to 35 minutes is recommended.

    Jundo,

    Thank you for this teaching.

    It actually made me tear up, but in a good way.

    Your teachings have made a true difference in my life and represent a debt I shall never be able to repay, but I shall keep trying pass on what I learn as long as I live.

    Thank you Jundo...so very much.

    Gassho,
    Dosho

    Once again, Jundo-oso, thank you for your wonderful teaching. Instead of a rakusu, I have decided to sew the Kesa. You'll be happy to hear I miscalculated and need to go back for more material :lol: :roll:

    gassho,

    Thank you Jundo.

    The part where you mentioned how if you make a mistake during chanting, you just move on from there...wonderful lesson.

    Gassho!

    Thank you Jundo Sensei. I came to this same conclusion after two stressful weeks of having a pass/fail mentality towards Ango! Though I try very hard to keep commitments I have let go(mostly) of the judging of my practice, or at times lack there of!

    Gassho,

    Resistance to things we don't like is in our heads. Yes, that's one huge teaching for me.

    Thank you, Jundo.

    Re: SIT-A-LONG with JUNDO: An URGENT ANGO CAUTION!

    Its is strange : listening teachings about mistakes and being happy. But Treeleaf Zendo Zen makes me happy : without metaphysical words, without guilty, concrete and simple, it is a good way. I try to do ango this year, and those teachings are giving help and courage. Thanks and gassho.

    Re: SIT-A-LONG with JUNDO: An URGENT ANGO CAUTION!

    Thank you for this timely talk. Very important to hear. You know, it all seems to come back to the same core messages--avoiding extremes, practicing sincerely, finding the Middle Way, all of life is practice. But they can never be repeated enough! We are dumb animals and our minds get the better of us.

    Many bows (because I dislike them too),

    Great teaching Jundo. As always, you know the difficulties and "no mistakes" we get into and find the right words to help us to move from there towards or goal-less goal.
    How many times did I complain last week on difficulties not allowing me to continue my Ango? Now I can view it from a new light.

    Thank you so much, Jundo. And thanks everybody for yer practice

    Brillyant! There are no missteaks! My shoulders have a burden lifted from them...!

    The first few evenings I was working on the rakusu, my wife noted that if this exercise was going to turn me into such a wreck, maybe I was missing the point....

    Thank you, now I can go back to rakusu sewing and accept it stitch by stitch, as-it-is! (And my family is not fleeing to the other side of the house while I sew)

    Gassho,

    Re: SIT-A-LONG with JUNDO: An URGENT ANGO CAUTION!

    Thanks jundo,

    I do struggle when I feel that family are taking up my time and I would rather be doing the just sitting practice. I do know that this is a case of not accepting what is in the present moment. But I really struggle to go into the moment when doing chores in the house or looking after my children. Which include changing nappies or taking them to the toilet! Any suggestions or tips to help me include a hectic family life as part of my practice?

    Well, that is the central theme of our little Sangha. I will open the floor to all our members with families who may have some tips, and also we have had many threads on such topics ... Here are some ...

    Hi Ray,

    As I have a 2 year old on my lap who really likes to play with keyboards, I will just say that Fugen's recent talk is a great place to start:

    I'll post more later, but just remember that changing them and helping them go potty ARE Ango.

    Thanks very much Jundo for opening this up.

    Thanks very much Dosho, the talk you posted inspires me to be more present with my children. When they play it inspires me to live in that moment and fully throw myself into the situation.

    I guess when they need their butts wiped I become the best Butt wiper ever Or i become the butt or the tolit paper!!

    No seriously, I did find this post/talk very uplifting and inspiring to be there for my kids and partner. Now is the time that life is happening and I should not let that pass by being somewhere else. I want to be part of the best show in town by just being!
