“Live in Joy, in Love, Even Among Those Who Hate”
Teacher: Susan Stone
Live in joy, in love main points and practices.pdf
In this fraught world, it is helpful to remember the Buddha's teaching of living in joy and love even among those who hate. When we look deeply into the teachings, we realize the way to do this requires us not only to cultivate lovingkindness and compassion, but to move into difficult territory that we almost instinctively resist—namely, our resistance to the inherent pain of Life. Following a guided meditation, Susan will offer a talk that explores the Buddha's 1st Noble Truth, the truth of suffering. The talk investigates how living in joy and love calls on us, as the Dharma teaches, to surrender, even as we work to alleviate suffering.
