It’s not what you know that’s the issue; it’s the knower, the mistaken identity that’s the problem. Whatever shows up in your mind stream, you know that. The first arising is free from a knower. Then you leave the immediacy for what you think about it. The issue is not the feeling that comes up, it’s trying to stop it, fight with it or blame someon…
 
Your basic instruction is to sit down, hold still without being rigid, and intend to see what’s moving. If it’s a daydream, then observe that. There’s nothing to correct. Whatever arises, that’s the path. Don’t maintain it and don’t fight with it. Notice the tendency to do something with it. If you want to do something with it, enjoy it. Allow it t…

How does renaming what we call negativity help us to work with that in a different way? How do we not fight with what’s arising? If we are functioning out of the bodhisattva vow, what do we do? Can not doing much look like activity? How can we meet someone where they’re at if it looks like they’re insane? What is your primary teaching? Sokuzan resp…

We are always trying to protect, extend, and defend ourselves, or do something about me me me and my wonderful stuff. When you are being accused of something and fear getting pulled into others’ projections, meet people where they’re at. The paranoia is dependently arisen; you can’t get rid of it. You may need to relate to whatever arises in your m…
 
Bear Gokan Bonebakker, Senior Monastic - Zen Mountain Monastery, Sunday 8/22/2021 - In our life, we experience not getting what we want, getting what we don’t want, so we try to change things immediately – fueling our suffering.

Minding your own business doesn’t mean you shouldn’t step in and help when you see something terrible happening, but do it situationally. Don’t do anything unless you have to. It doesn’t mean that you ignore things; in fact, when you lead with your awareness, you are very attentive to everything going on. When the thinking process is in the service…

The ego, or what I might call the land baron, is the one who has territory, owns things, and puts things there in the mind stream or even the life stream if they have a chance. When something arises in the mind stream like anger, the self-centered mind claims it and wants to hang on to it. That property owner gets support as someone whose anger thi…
 
Full intention here means not spending time looking for results. The spiritual path is not about results, or using the structure of the mundane path to evaluate your progress.

Rationalizing is abandoning what’s in front of us for why it makes sense or doesn’t work. It is caused by suffering and pain, by being mistreated or the perception that you’re being mistreated. From the perception of buddhadharma it’s a teaching. If you are a student, there are much, much deeper levels of learning and understanding. The understandi…
