Don’t Own the Second Arrow

How do we deal with life when it bites us? Without trust in the Path, there is no way we can fulfill it. Practise seeing what works and what doesn’t, what binds us and what frees us. Seeing pain as our teacher, we can face whatever we are feeling and not lament. Not owning our suffering is letting go the second arrow of mental pain. This will be for our safety, and when wise insight into suffering reveals the truth in us, there arises incalculable joy and peace. Talk #3 given at the Madison Insight Retreat, May 2017 in Wisconsin, US.
