What we should and shouldn’t do
We had a rather free-form discussion today, and I thank you all for helping me along with talking about some ideas that aren’t quite coherent yet in my own mind. I talked engaged Buddhism and why I believe that forcing political agendas and passing judgement on others may be at odds with what the Buddha taught. I referred to two articles from Tricycle:
And just this last thought from Rumi (and Mary D.) There is a field:
Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing
and rightdoing there is a field.
I’ll meet you there.
When the soul lies down in that grass
the world is too full to talk about.–Rumi
