Talk 2: Face the Suffering or Turn to Joy?

Talk 2: Face the Suffering or Turn to Joy? post image

The idea can reach a meditator that we must stare straight into suffering without flinching, and also not be attached to pleasure. This is usually not a skillful idea and is not good for mindfulness practice. In this talk, we are pointed in another direction, toward our simply being present and the inherent joy of that, an acquired taste we should be gaining. Resisting pleasure and stoically facing our suffering can be like turning a deaf ear to this.

I sure hope this has been helpful to you in your exploration of meditation.

    Yes, I feel like I can be bogged down by thoughts of negativity and suffering. Turning to joy through pain is the best option though.
