Thoughts on why impermanence or anicca, suffering or dukkha, and not-self or anattaa are the foundation for seeing things as they are.
For now, your host, Margaret Meloni, is happy to share with you some of her reflections from conversations with our season 2 teachers. She is reminded that impermanence is not easy for any of us, we are all grieving something, and our approaches to handling it all are very similar. You might agree with her observations, or you might have other thoughts!
And it was and still is experiential that draws on compassion and also can lead us to become more compassionate toward others.
I had to extend compassion to myself. And later, as helping others became part of my path, I learned that my experience would help me be compassionate toward others if and only if I accepted that my experience was only representative of how things worked for me on my path.
