2009-06-04 Verses on the Faith Mind by Seng-T'san (3rd Zen Patriarch of China), part 3 56:43
James Baraz
Tonight James finishes his series on the Faith Mind by the 3rd Zen Patriarch of China. One of the most meaningful lines in this section is: ”To live in this (highest) realization is to be without anxiety about non-perfection.” Cultivating that attitude is a key to freedom. To let ourselves be perfectly imperfect.

2009-06-03 The Attitude that Perpetuates Suffering 1:10:46
Tara Brach
Our conditioning is to conclude that "something is wrong" when we encounter difficulty. This way of relating to experience binds us in a trance--it locks in the identification with a separate, victimized, self; it leads to unwise action and it removes us from presence. This talk guides us in recognizing our often unconscious attitude towards what is happening, and arriving in the unconditional presence that is the source of love, wisdom and freedom.

Shaila Catherine
Appreciative joy (sympathetic joy, mudita) is the third of four qualities called Brahma Viharas (divine abodes) which are the subjects for this 4-part lecture series. Appreciative joy is presented as an extension of the loving kindness (metta) practice. Joy refers to the ability to delight and rejoice in the success and good fortune of others. Mudita overcomes the hindrances and obstacles of conceit, comparing, envy, avarice, jealousy, aversive criticism, resentment, competitiveness, and boredom.
