    SIT-A-LONG with Jundo: BUDDHA BOO!

    Halloween is a good time to talk about ...

    ... the things that SCARE US!

    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

    Thanks Jundo!

    Maybe we could have a Treeleaf hungry ghost feeding service for Halloween?

    (the fluttering of wings is not a favourite with me either!)

    As a trainee I ask that all comments by me on matters of Dharma be taken with "a grain of salt".

    Fear is ... walking across this bridge!
    The best way to honour the women of the Prairies who won the right to vote a hundred years ago isn't a monument. It's you going out to vote.

    Thank you, Jundo.


    Please remember I am only a priest in training. I could be wrong in everything I say. Slap me if needed.

    Thank you Jundo. I think this is an important topic as there is so much induced fear being paraded in the media and it is a weapon of compliance used by managers in a range of settings. Dealing with this is an everyday necessity for some.

    Thank you for admitting those fears; I share in those as well. Also, I have some family members that suffer mental illness, and it's awesome that we live in a time where mental illness is no longer such a stigma. I know it still can be considered that way by some, but I think overall it's becoming recognized as just like any other illness that should be treated.

    I used to think that fear was its own entity. An enemy that would rear its ugly head. I've begun to realize that fear is just another part of what makes up this thing we call self. Sometimes it just needs to be embraced and accepted as it is, and then we can move on.

    Thank you for this Jundo!

    What a great video - thanks a lot, Jundo!

    We can only make sense of the world by contrasts.
    If everything were white (or blue or gray), how could we discern one thing from the other?
    Without valleys there are no mountains. How could we appreciate good times if there were no bad times?
    Without contrasts everything would be flat.
    So even fear has its place in life, its value so to speak.
    The Taoists for example don't talk of opposites, but of polarities. Good/bad, high/low, up/down - just like poles of a magnet, you can't have the one without the other.
    The Yin-Yang symbol shows this quite well IMHO. Interestingly, Abbot Muho from Antai-ji also used this concept in one of his books.

    One of my mottos in life is "This too shall pass". And it works quite often.
    Oh my, this post is too long, I'm afraid...

    I think, like pain, fear is not necessarily the same as suffering. It is possible to feel fear and yet not be consumed by it. To say, hello Fear, I recognize you, have seen you before, now lets both calm down, ok, what is it you are trying to tell me? And even be grateful for it. Of course this conversation probably takes place after you have removed yourself from the vicinity of the roaring, hungry, bloodthirsty tiger (or tweety-bird, as the case may be).

    Thank you Jundo

    sat today
