Death and Awakening

Listen deeply to the resonance within where virtue sows fields of goodness, wisdom, and compassion and Death teaches us to let go. At first, we tremble with fear. But out of that fear we draw strength. Out of anger – a stillness and forgiveness. Out of greed, we draw generosity and gratitude. And from true vulnerability, we awaken to the Deathless.  A talk given in May 2011 at an Insight Meditation Society retreat, Barrie, MA., USA.
