塔拉·伯拉夫:超越“Unreal Othering”

Image
What motivates us – as individuals and as a society – to build walls and knowingly hurt others? This talk explores the evolutionary roots of “unreal othering” and how when we are hijacked by fear, it can take over and disconnect us from the very real suffering of others. We then look at how meditative strategies awaken us from othering, and reveal our intrinsic belonging. Finally, we apply this to our own lives in a reflection that helps us respond to someone we have turned into “unreal other” with compassion and wisdom.

看到基本的善良,第一部分 - 与塔拉伯拉

Most of us long to trust our goodness, but get caught in stories of deficiency and striving to affirm we’re okay. These talks look at the block to realizing the loving awareness that is our essence, and the practices that help us see this essential goodness—in ourselves, dear ones and in those we might habitually consider different or “other.” Both talks include reflections that can help us appreciate the basic goodness that lives through these precious, changing forms. “Saints are what they are, not because their sanctity makes them admirable to others, but because the gift of sainthood makes it possible for them to admire everyone else.” -Thomas Merton Listen: //www.gtlsio.icu/seeing-basic-goodness-part-1/  

当新闻让我们悲惨时:记住更富有的存在和更大的真相

人们定期向我询问精神练习如何引导我们应对我们社会的状态。他们告诉我,虽然同情的教义是活着的,但在他们的生活中的其他部分乐于助人,当他们每天阅读头条新闻时,它们似乎遥不可及。在来自我们DC社区的最近一封电子邮件中,成员问:当对弱势群体造成这么多的危害时,我们如何保持富有同情心? isn.’验收一种自满? isn.’t “letting go”像恩赐一样?我们如何在我们的时候呼吁冥想实践’在我们社会中如此明显的仇恨和恶毒,变得恐惧,愤怒和沮丧?一世’在对我们社会中犯罪的危害中,患有许多愤怒,恐惧和厌恶的潮流。在我自己的练习中,它有助于继续开始在我身边,而不是判断自己的反应,思考“I shouldn’t feel this.”我经常回复,而不是试图放弃这些感受
