to listen to
and learn about the body to listen to and learn teachings dash meditations on the body
and this care for the body
this compassionate care of the body
will tend to create a body mind situation where we will be willing to listen to the teachings
will be willing to listen to basically will be more willing to the basically listened to everything
will be willing to listen to the cries of the
of the being who believes the dream of his body will be able to listen to the cries of other beings who believe their dream of their bodies
will be able to listen like for example i listened now to the cries of my little granddaughter
who is not perhaps develop fully the concept of her body that she will later i don't know what stages at
but i i i i imagine that she's evolving i see her developing different attitudes towards her body
if i take care of myself i am better able to listen to her cries and her laughs and everything
but also if you can listen to cries
you might also be able to listen to teachings
when you hear cries you may feel you may feel somewhat uncomfortable when you hear teachings you may feel somewhat uncomfortable
because the teachings lot of the teachings are telling us that what we think is real is actually just an idea
the teaching science is telling us that everything we know is just a conscious construction
i'm not saying everything's just a conscious construction is just saying that everything we know as a conscious construction
and that can be kind of i can be as uncomfortable to hear as the cry of baby

yeah conscious construction it are the things that you know unconscious constructions the unconscious according to this teaching the unconscious isn't really constructing things the unconscious supports the conscious construction the unconscious
which supports the unconscious is the results of our conscious constructing
so because we have done a lot of conscious constructing we are supported to continue
we have a vast
storehouse of the effects of innumerable acts of conscious construction
and that supports our ongoing conscious construction
and malefactors
it's kind of that the results of past conscious construction is kind of
i don't know what's kind of like gut it's a proclivity towards continuing the process
and so then consciously reconstruct things like we we construct like other people and rooms and ourselves and
and basically images all day long stories all day long those and the nose have consequence in the consequence of them is the unconscious
right now which supports the process to go on
that's a start i just told you a little story of the dependent or arising of imagination

but i'm actually focusing on the dependent car rising of the body which is not separate from this
but i'm focusing giving more attention to the details of the typical rising of the body and that body the way dependent court rises is part of what sponsors
also it
the our ability to imagine things
so once again care for the for our for our what we conceive of as our body what we've learned to conceive of as body caring for that according to what we are learning is compassion towards the body that sets the stage for listening to the teachings about how the
and and then and that's and that's what i've been talking to you about and
and again this meditation on how the body arises and how it is wanted or isn't that meditation is
it would describe in that meditation understanding that meditation process is also the meditation of process of developing wisdom
i think this might be a good time to bring this up this is up ah when you call us a painting or what is this what this is an illustration which friend did and this is based on or something i mentioned in earlier class something like or
originally are basically
life is like a river
see them for river don't know
but then the river
became a row this is glorious
but because the road was originally a river the road
is always hungry
but i would interpret this today as the road is our idea of our body and other things but let's just say or body the river is our body before
we make it into a road
the road is our conception of her body and our body as we imagine it once conception has arisen
from our body
the road however
is sometimes confused with the river which creates various kinds of problems plus the road also
although it performs various things like you can do operations up here and drive cars and gotten downstairs on the road
it's not that your cat down here i just that you don't know how down here you don't even know it down here up here you know down here you don't down here you experience a you know
appears perception down here is consciousness but not consciousness has objects
and then there's this there's this a lotus i think we're not it's a popular and growing up here and i don't know how friend understands it but i would say that this flower here is is understanding the relationship between
the uncanny by
the case
a lot of people think
and wet in the west that they
have a body that they have a canny body that they have road body a body road
and they have that and that the their one thing in their bodies another i heard people talk like that i tell my body what to do
that's the way people talk on the road they think that's the way when they think that them when they think they're son when when they have a road like version of themselves a canny conceivable version of themselves which has a canny conceivable relationship with their canny body
and canny has various meanings buddy
the ponies that would make our body into can we make our mind into a canon and the cans have this relationship
but that they're hungry for the uncanny relationship which is actually supporting the candy relationship
the uncanny supports the candy
the inconceivable pre conceptual body supports doesn't there is actually not i can see there's not really a conceptual body there's just a body which is conceived of that way
by studying the relationship between the constructed world
and unconstructive or i shouldn't manage construct construct is going a bit far but rather the pre conceptual world can pre conceptual body studying that relationship makes this flower this wisdom this california poppy wisdom flower
that's my interpretation of of it and if you can ask friend where she met
by if you want their skin
if she i'm like i say you can but actually i should ask friend can they come and ask you what you mean by it
and she'll give you a copy to july
yeah so i would say that the flower
the lotus flower and the california poppy flower wisdom grow from taking care of the road being compassionate with the road
and being compassionate with the road you can listen to the teachings about the relationship between the river and the road and you can listen to teachings about what's going on in the river
now these teachings about what's going on to the river are coming to you had in all they're coming to you and when you hear them you will turn them into stories which is okay that's how you will learn them
and as you continue to learn the stories about what's going on in the river body in the pre conceptual body as you work with that you will come to the place
i'm eventually
understanding that what you've been working with is just an idea and become free of your ideas of the body and realize the actual body

yeah you could have like this you could modify this and right have roots going into the into the road and those would be a good routes routes and then you can have roots going into the water which are the wisdom roots
the good routes set up realizing the deeper roots the roots of wisdom which are roaming around in the realm of the uncanny inconceivable realm that are cozying up to what can't be grasped and getting used to living in ungraspable body
and beer and being able to do that we first have to put down roots into the into the conceivable
and because that's where the pain is
so it's it's compassion work maybe to put down roots into them
into the tarmac and its wisdom to put down
routes into the inconceivable
and telling stories which you will be conceivable when you hear them probably
you may notice that they'll be kind of maybe at first kind of you'll have some trouble conceiving of them except
in the form of i don't understand when he sang
yes fear

i think i am i i'll just say right now i think maybe i'm talking about the wisdom of the body and i and i will now i've told you before but i'll tell you again what it's like okay here comes ready here's what i'm talking about i'm talking about a body which is basically
the body which is a power
a power
physical power
it's a power it's a capacity it's a it's a faculty
which ah
which is physical and it's it's in it's in the physical world
so like there's something in something in something in the in is located so there's a body located i'm pointing i'm pointing out a body i'm pointing this way
for starters i'm pointing this way and i'm saying there's a body here that's inserted among all the other bodies in his room
and also it's inserted among the electromagnetic radiation in the room
the tact phenomenon the room
and the tastes of the room
and it is risk and it can respond to them it has the power to respond to for example electromagnetic radiation
and it's located but
it's it's it's kind of a receptive responsive physicality and it responds to another kind of physicality
and i said before that this body
is not really a body when it's not responding
so i would say a dead body isn't a body i'm talking about the body of a living being
and if somebody's dead i say that i would say that their actual bodies not there because the body i'm talking about his his hundred i'm only talking the the body in the water is the body of a living being
and bodies of living beings are interacting with
sense data the body of living being it's a sensory body is a sensuous body but as sensuous body when it's alive is functioning
and it's being touched and dancing with sense data
and i'm saying that when they are in that dance the bodies alive
but the body is not alive except by the dance so really that's the uncanny part of the body is the body's not separate from the thing is dancing with because
because they're not so the uncanny illnesses is that the body is actually the
it's the actual dance of the to but then that also makes the physical world uncanny also because the physical world is not sense data unless it's sensed so in this story on telling electromagnetic radiation that's not sensed
it's not send data it's potential sense data but as i would say it's not part of a living system and a body that sense since capacities in our funk functioning or not the sense capacities of a living being is when they're interacting that the body is alive but then at that time the
sense data are alive too
so i would say and and i would go i'm okay with saying that the body the body power he is could be called the subject and the sense data could be called the object
and you don't have subjects without objects
the experiencing being the experiencing living being is a unity
and the structure of that unity is a duality but the duality is not a separation
it's just a subject object that aren't separated
hmm the body power is the ability to respond to a sense data
like colors and so on while i was sitting i was watching ah i was watching the mice my dream of the sense power of touch
and i was watching it respond to the sense data of touchable or attacked or phenomena
so in the neighborhood of this body here that sponsoring this talk right now
there was a sense of being a being touched
by tangibles some of the tangibles i was touched by were the lights in the room
the sounds in the room
when as say i mean i'm speaking now for this sensory body but the part that i was particularly focusing on was how the sense of touch
was dancing with the tangible part of the world and there's two parts of the tangle para world i sought interacting with one part was the the cushion here
and the table
and i was i was watching these the response to the touch of what was supporting the sitting body but i was mostly watching the body as it ah
what i got as it responded to the touch of the tangible part
of the world
which you could say is some kind of like
like bones and stuff
we're i imagine his bones but without imagining his bones i just felt like something was responding something in this body was responding to something which we usually think as in the body but i'm saying it's not in the body so i'm seeing a lot of wits usually seen as in the body is actually sense data
and not sense organs which the sense date organs are responding to
i'm talking about now the the river body gay
and this involves i'm not conscious of how the
there might be a sensitivity to at the at the ah
would you call the cellular level
you know tactfully but there are their selves in the retina right
art doesn't the retina have like a million cells in it
so that's an example of cells that electromagnetic radiation touches and those cells
have a very a very
dynamic dance with that kind of energy
and the selves of the body which met at which the the tactile sense in some cases the most basic and it sort of covers not doesn't completely cover but it's pretty much covers all the skin around the body but it's also inside
but in some sense i'm saying and i'm suggesting to imagine that the part of what we usually imagine as the body
which the sense of touch can feel that that part that we are feeling is not
the sense organ of touch so the sense organ of touch which is has lot do with our skin is not usually sensing the skin
it's tuesday sensing other parts of it of the of other kinds of tissue which are not sense organs
and ah
other physical things which are like this the tissue is to it's touching or it's being touched by
that are so-called outside the body or not the tissue of the body but it's not actually the body that's what i'm saying to you
we we typically imagine that parts of the body which are not the sensory body we often imagine them as part of the body
but for the origination of the body
it happens to a great extent by the body being touched from the outside by light
and from the outside and inside by sound
and by the outside and inside by smell and by the outside and inside by taste but most but to great extent from
what was usually considered inside
which is not the sense is not the sensory body but some tissue which happens to be right nearby
and which we use and are very intimately working with when we're sitting in meditation as you're adjusting your posture when if you try if you tried to sit in a yoga posture you get lots of information about how your tactile sense is working with your with
with some touch material which was usually considered your body
if you sit in a position where you're not aware of how your tactile senses working with
flesh and bones
i would say the poster's nuts or yogic
because you you're not in touch with the dependent as you're not has in touch with a dependent core rising of your body
and that body is a different from for we think we usually we think the sense organs are in the body and i'm saying the sense organs
war sensory body but and i'm i'm saying that the body in a way isn't even just that because you cannot get a hold of that sense organ body because it has no life other than when it's interacting with the sense data so it's a ungraspable uncanny
mystery body
and then the other parts of of this of the physical neighborhood i would say that they're not part of the body which gives rise to consciousness
but they are part of the world
that the body lives and so in in the neighborhood of this body
in the neighborhood of these sense organs is lots of
which is connected to the consciousness which arises from this body interacting with that tissue
but the tissue itself is actually from the point of view of the body is the material world surrounding the body
and again when you're sitting in meditation
ah and you're trying to find the dance
of the arising of consciousness through the dance of the body interacting with the world
that's that's a big part of the yogi process of the dependent core rising of experience
and again you used to high start with my imagination of this with my imagination of my
a my sense of touch working with
the material
but this sense of touch lives in this tense up sense of touch is
ensconced in the physical world and it's it's it isn't the physical world outside the physical world outside and inside of the sense organ it's all around it completely envelops it doesn't really inside and outside
so that's that's a that's a meditation that i offer you on the body

yeah you

so what i'm saying is that the breathing process is something which the sense capacity of touch can work with like breath
moving air into contact with these with this ability to sense the breath can be tracked or
and we have we can feel it tactfully we can also hear it and we can sometimes see it and we can sometimes smell it and we can sometimes tasted mostly i think for me anyway it's tactile and auditory and so
watching the breath interact with the sense of touch and watching the breath interact with the sense of hearing
is a very helpful way to get in touch with the pre conceptual body
you start with the conceptual body
your idea of body like it's got arms legs you know nose tongue abdomen you breathe in through your nose or through your mouth the air go someplace you have these stories about it and you watch that process but as you feel as you get more and more attuned to the actual
tactile sense of the breath and auditory sense of the breath as you get more and more into that
along with these teachings
you start to open up to the pre conceptual body which is also dancing with the breath

apparently it seems like i've got to story that that the pre conceptual uncanny inconceivable body one of the main things that a dances with is ah
in the fort would be called gear a mixture of gas which we call air which has got oxygen and nitrogen and so on it when the main things when in the main things that touches and the touches it
his air and air in the air touches it and that touch is a big part of supporting the living system
that that touch seemed to like be very nourishing to the body and go along with the the the core rising of the body and to get into that and to be aware of that
he's one of the
best ways to get in touch with
the actual process that underlies our dream of breathing
like most people
think that's a certain things or breath and others aren't
so you start with what you think his breath and as you get more and more into what you think his breath you start to notice a breath it's not your idea breath and the body which is sensing it is not your idea of the body which is sensing it
so from the point of we do need we have a story that we do need to breathe but also i would say that
we need more than just our idea of breathing we need more all of us i guess most of us had the idea that we are breathing and i'm saying that's the road version of our breathing process
and by being kind to the road version of our breathing process which means that you think you're paying attention to your breathing
your your kindly donating your time to pay attention to your breathing at the conceptual level that sets the stage for you to hear the teaching about what's actually going on with your breath behind your ideas about it and we have a need to breathe
but most people do not think they have a need to be to take care of the breathing process
i've been kind of the breeding process you've opened to the reality of the breathing process and we do need we do need to open to the reality of the breathing process otherwise are breathing is mixed with the stress of misc of believing that are idea breathing is breathing which it isn't
and that the breathing body that we imagine is the real breathing body which it isn't
so not everybody thinks they have to be kind to their breathing process mostly at yogis that think that by being kind of the yogic
process of attention to breathing you enter into the reality
how breathing which is the deeper yoga
and we do need that because it until we find that we are
not wise
we're not wise
we're just you know were confined by our dream of our body and our dream of our breathing and the dream of our body breathing with
with the breathing
and that there's somebody doing it and all that rather than that there's a there's a person who has created by this breathing body who can imagine what the breathing body is and believe that that's what it is
yes sir

to what extent is the practice of breathing

say again i got it all you a put with more time
well said
this process

turkey's shop there the first phase of it is usually
in the realm of imagination you hear instructions about paying attention to the breathing
you hear that it's a form of kindness
it can it's conducive to tranquility and ease and and flexibility of body and mind
yeah or of openness and focus it has those qualities and and and you hear that teaching at the conceptual level you also hear teachings of how to care for your posture and be patient with your self when you're not able to to pay attention to your breathing and to get distracted
so you also practice compassion toward yourself when you're not able to do the practice which helps you do it
and this is all the conceptual level and you get more concentrated all along hopefully you're hearing teachings which are telling you about where you're operating
and your and now and you're hearing them all along but as you get more concentrated by taking carrier breathing you hear them more clearly you hear them and more concentrated space

the there aren't there aren't there aren't exactly unconscious constructions there is the consequence of constructions
the content the consequences of our karma or unconscious we cannot we do not see the consequences of our karma we do not see the consequences of of an english lesson
like you know if you say some words over and over you cannot see what effect that has
but it does have an effect and that affect support you to be able to speak english but we can't see how our past study of language is supporting our present speech we can i can't see that i don't think anybody else in this room can either

that that it's not coming out of the current unconscious but the unconscious supports the belief that what you think is not a conscious construction
and but that means that as a result of believing what i think for many aeons
i now think that what i think is true too
the consequence of imagining that things are a certain way and that that's true the consequence of that is that supports us to do that again
so we are addicted to imagining and because that's the way we know things
i not only do we know them but we think then also they're real they're not just conscious constructions that has the effect
and the effect is unconscious to support us to continue the process of imagining and believing the images that were imagining as the dependent core rising of imagining and believing in the immaculately images has ripped something other than images

yeah right that's right i'm saying is that that's why you had to develop good routes because without good routes you want most people will not be able to stand the cognitive dissonance of
what they've been thinking of their whole life and the teaching which is saying what you've been thinking is just can't is just ideas and when people hear that either they don't want to hear it anymore or they are they are they say well if that's the case there's no point in being practicing compassion anymore because it's just an idea
yet a good routes so that when you hear that what your that the practice you're trying to do is just your idea of the practice that you won't quit
because practicing compassion according to your idea for compassion it is what sets up the ability to practice compassionate deeper levels like i was saying it no abode the first level of compassion is you think this is real compassion for real people who have real suffering and lived in and i'm going to give the real
in other words according to my idea of compassion and my idea people people are what i think they are and i am what i think i am and my kindness is the kindness i think it is and they're suffering is what i think it is rather than i have images of people and i have images of their suffering i don't know who
the people are or what their suffering is and i have an image that i'd like to help them
but you have to get good routes to to to be able to say that to yourself as a result of hearing the teaching
because we don't want people to stop being kind once they hear the teaching of the of conscious construction only
we don't want people to stop taking care of their body when we hear that the body are dealing with is an imaginary body
you have to be kind to that imaginary body in order to open up to the
inconceivable unimagined neri actual living life
your actual bodily experience which is not a perception which you don't know but what you're yearning for
all day long
you're yearning for that and you're trapped in this normal version of your life and your body
the actual body is actually not suffering
it said peace and it's free if all the suffering occurs in our story of the body
that's why say even if your body is not screaming out in pain still
the body we imagine in that realm there is suffering
and so if you if you hear this teaching and it undermines your kindness towards your ideas of your body
we have to like put more energy into been kind to your idea and many not listen to this teaching so i'm taking her it's a risk here in this class to tell you these teachings about the body these meditations on the body
a struggle
suggesting that

it it might it might lead to you giving up your practice of developing good routes
asked about that
is that
does that just resolve
well where's that
that's kind of way to
spoken of the practice
in other words or something a ball

you have to
you have to have compassion in order to develop wisdom
but in the process of compassion which is trying to develop wisdom by listening to the wisdom teachings there is the possibility that if the wisdom teachings start to touch the living being that they'll be that the the the mode in which they're trying to practice good routes get
it gets shaken
and they think maybe or i learnt to practice good routes that can happen in the wisdom practice if you practice good routes you try to practice good routes but you don't hear these wisdom teachings about the body then you just quit because you know because you're ignorant not because you heard wisdom teachings like if you're ignorant you're trying to be kind sometimes use
say well it's too hard and i won't do it anymore internet that wisdom teachings to think that to you
or or like i'm trying to practice compassion with this person is being mean to me so i'm not going to do it you don't get their wisdom teachings to like not want to be kind of someone
but the wisdom teaches come in and use and somebody tells you that the person you're trying to be kind to you know is destroyed what you're trying to be kind to your idea of the person the person isn't actually your idea that teaching might you say well then i'm not going to take care of the person
wouldn't it be said wait a minute that's not what i mean and if you had that attitude just forget what i just said this is to advance for you let's just not try to take care of this person in fact this is the scary part this is the candidate
yeah gotta do this if you if we do not understand
reality we will give up practicing good rich sometimes
because it's so tiring to be struggling trying to live and make the world according to our i you know the world according to garp
you know it's such a struggle that you know
you'll get burned out if you try to be compassionate
so there there is an aspect which it's coming out here that as you hear the teachings about what the about what the body really is than you might not take care of your dream of the body but you should take care of your dream in the body and when you have wisdom you will take care your dream of body much
better than you used to it just you know that his dream of a it that's why you can take care of it better
and the reason why you know it's a dream of body rather than hearing about it is because you took care of the dream body to such an extent that you're quite relaxed
and now you're wise and now you can do these compassion practices better than before because you're not stressed by the misconception of what you're caring for
but there's a possibility
people who have not heard wisdom teachings often take a break from practicing compassion which you may have noticed
and some people they don't tell some people who are have not heard wisdom teachings that have not understood them they don't take a break break from compact practicing compassion they just go right ahead and do it even though people tell them that what they're doing is not compassion
dinner ceremony thing somebody thinks are practicing compassion everybody else says that's not compassion please stop and they don't listen to them have you ever heard of that
no you don't i'm talking about like when the i heard a story about the russians came into hungary and nineteen fifty six and they told the hungarian people that there were there to liberate them
and the hungarian people said actually no thanks we don't need to be liberated were fine and russians said beginners don't we came deliberation you're you're you're in bondage we're going to liberate years and no not really you can go back we don't need you and russian said what we love you were going to do it anyway so they came in and they took over hungary even though the hunger
ryan people ask them to go back
that was there compassionate thing to do
and they thought they knew a compassion was and what libert bondage was and they didn't listen to the people which they would you please reconsider your kindness
so a lot of people are trying to be kind but actually other people think it's cruelty
and then when other people things cruelty and they tell themselves they don't listen to him because they think oh that's the they're they're they're they're just misguided they don't understand what compassion is
and if they keep that have long enough they'll they'll quit because they'll eventually see that that doesn't work but meantime lots of unfortunate things might happen
and sometimes people don't tell you to stop
they let you keep doing it but then you start to feel like i'm killing myself taking care of these people
you know
i'm i'm losing i'm i'm losing my life that they're not telling me to go away there's there's fucking my blood
i gotta get outta here
when when you when you understand you keep doing the practices which took you to to understanding but now they're unhindered by your ideas of your life
so i imagine that
actually i asked you if you knew what i'm talking about many of you said not trigger had like know so i'm just imagining that there's a certain level of
one hundred and what
because a certain level of i don't know what going on




where you kind of our karma
as a consequence that
i don't mean as bad thing either i'm just saying but but karma is basically
when it caught karma is our problem
what we do is our problem because karma reinforces the realm in which we do karma
so common make reinforces the sense that the world we're living in is real and that birth and death is real
and at a certain point somebody says there's a teaching which can liberate you from nissen world you live in where there's birth and death if the teaching which can liberate you and the first thing you do with the world of birth and death quarters is teaching his practice compassion towards it
but not just not just to practice compassion with it and past practice compassion with it we practice compassion with it but practice compassion
leading to enlightenment and freedom and then practice compassion from enlightenment and freedom
i didn't like practice compassion and then you become free and and no more power compassion it's a practice compassion as well as you can before you have perfect wisdom
so if you got suffering if you feel stressed if you have pain and you're not happy about it
it's possible to have certain kinds of pain and be very happy
like the pain you have
from feeling other people's suffering is happiness
the pain you have because you love someone is compassion as happiness compassion is happiness
and the compassion functions more and more fully as we become more and more wise so we packed his compassion towards this world that we live in and everything we see here
and karma is also part of what makes it possible for here to first to here's a teaching have been kind so we have a comic version of the teaching be kind to all karmic consciousness a kind to everything that appears here
and then there's the teachings of what kindness and tales but it's also teaching that for this to be this compassion to be fully functional
we also need wisdom
and the wisdom doesn't make the compassion unnecessary it just makes it more effective more enjoyable more energetic
i was thinking about you and i was talking about a situation where you know what the body's not in a lot of pain but you still notice that you feel scared your case your body is in pain so maybe you know in that situation you can also be a feel scared when you have a lot of pain you can feel scared
when you don't have much pain you can feel scared but it's also possible to have a lot of pain and not be afraid
it's pot the buddha present the buddha's can have a lot of pain
and not be scared and be happy because they're helping people even though they're in pain
what you don't notice as much you notice it just the right amount to for example go sit down
so the buddha when the buddha got sick the buddha like what and sat down as the brutal i laid down so the the the the way of taking hear your body you can still take care your body even though you're happy
being wise doesn't mean you can't take care your body anymore
my fact the point is you can take care your body better
because you've been enlightened as to what the body is
and you're not going to get enlightened about your body unless you're kind to the body that your unenlightened about
we had now there were ignorant of our body we can still practice kindness the best we can and practicing the best we can counts and sets up and develops good roots in in the in the road
and there with a good routes in the road we can put down roots into the water of wisdom and then we can continue to put down roots in the road
and continue to put down roots in the wisdom and this wonderful thing grows up call wisdom which makes all the different levels of compassion work better

but of course for me to develop wisdom in regard to my body
means to some extent to give up
the let go of my ideas in my body as being my body
doesn't mean destroy them just like on just let go of believing that that's what my body is
for example if i think my body's not your body okay
wisdom would like our that idea
and it wouldn't be that i'd get a new idea called my body is your body and i hold onto that
i wouldn't even wisdom i won't hold onto the idea your body is my body and my body's your i wouldn't hold onto neither but i'd be totally open to it and it would stand on a par with the idea my body isn't your body
and the idea that my welfare isn't your welfare or your welfare isn't my welfare that i did to wisdom let's go of
and it's opened the idea your welfare as my welfare it opens to the idea that the whole universe and how it's interacting with itself is actually my body i doesn't hold onto that just opens to it and understands it and also understands
my body's only my body and i to care about myself it understands that to wisdom understand that kind of talk
that's a waste that's the way living beings talk sometimes and as and is compassionate towards it but it knows it's just a child proc crying in the night
so practice compassion towards it doesn't get upset about us not afraid of it it's not afraid of such thoughts because it lets go of them
and let's go of him because it's kind to them
it's putting down roots into the road
and it's it's fostered by the road the by the real body
which is which is the way our bodies are dancing to they get together right now
that's the that's the real body but that's inconceivable we don't know that body but we can realize it and the way to realize it is first of all be compassionate to the one that we do know about that's conceivable
okay i'm tempted to call on people who look like they're on have your heart not understanding me but i want

when we believe we believe that what we think would be helpful but our idea of what's helpful would be helpful if we believe that we got a problem if we believe our idea of the person is who they are we got a problem
people aren't you are not my idea of you
in a
yeah right i mean believing the story is being attached to the story is true and that's our basic problem
when we believe our store we we believe the appearances that are happening and karmic consciousness and are focusing we believe our idea of our body and not saying don't believe what i'm saying be kind to it and listened to the teachings which are saying there's there's a body that's the end the the the as
actual body is supporting the imagination of this dream body
they're connected the real body is like sponsoring a mind that can dream up a body that doesn't exist
so they're connected so we don't wanna be mean to the to the baby of the real body the real bodies which is which is everybody interacting together to make all these diluted beings
but there's also a teaching saying be kind of these diluted beings and will realize the real body yes claire

be compassionate to the image and and like for example right now you can look at me you're looking at an at your image of me your idea of make big do your idea of compassion to your idea of me
and if you think for example that's my idea of him and actually he is that and if somebody says he isn't that i'm gonna have a little a problem arrakis i think he is like i think is you know a really nice guy and somebody says he's not and actually it's not that easy for me to actually accept them saying that
because i actually do believe he's now he's a nice guy but he's the type of nice guy i think he is somebody else's to different kind of nice guy no new so he noticed that you have an idea of me notice you have idea of kindness and do your idea of kindness towards your idea of me
that puts on route into the road that's trapping us and separating us from the real me the separating me from the real you and separating me from the real me
the real is separated by our ideas
aside from my ideas were not separated from reality
it's only our ideas are separated from were just just a thin layer of idea separating us from
the blissful body of buddha right now which is are actually which is our actual body
but that didn't that thin let her
is very strongly supported by lots of past thin layers so we had to be very careful and gentle with it otherwise you just make it thicker for mean to it just gets thicker
i'm not thicker exactly but
do more difficult to let go it's not ready to break through it is to let go of it it still will it always will be an enclosure
but if you abandon it
you don't it can still sit there and just you know you're not holding onto other words it's not hurting anybody and then you can talk to people who live in similar worlds and tell him how to deal with their
ideas so please be kind to your ideas of a people because that's what you've got
and notice that you know
there's some stress around that because there's also some attachment to your ideas
what's how fallen
what and also what they can be doing there would be held for years though
yeah please be careful
thank you
yeah it could be useful because the fear indicates to you that you don't understand

it's possible that if you lost your fear we're not not prematurely but i'm pretty call it dumb
i would say that there's a certain type of fear which makes you be careful and there's another kind of fear
ah which you don't need
that doesn't really make you feel careful it just makes you miserable
is but is that the kind of make should be careful

last year

before they acquired wisdom yeah yeah so
right so that the fear of harming people
is helpful to helps us to be careful
but some people have that fear of what of harming people but they're not afraid of anything else
and then yeah like buddhism are afraid to hurt people but they're not afraid of anything else or in certain certain a great bodhisattvas they're afraid of hurting people hurt freight of hurting anybody but they have no fear for example of themselves being her
they have no for example they have know if somebody is being hurt and they need their help they're not afraid to go into a situation where they might get hurt helping somebody
yeah well that that that i'm just saying that might be helpful to know that might be helpful to be being afraid if you will be hurt and being afraid of hurting others those two kinds of fear could be helpful i'm just telling you that some people some beings
you are afraid to hurt others but they're not afraid to be hurt themselves so basically they're not afraid that only afraid of other people's suffering it's all that that's only thing that frightens them as that other people are suffering
now it's that's like that's enlightenment that's wisdom yeah but until you have wisdom than being afraid that of hurting others and being afraid of being hurt yourself those will help you be compassionate
and before wisdom those those are helpful mental factors yes
they're not miserable in themselves know they actually they're actually if you don't if you don't dodgers like the those are like good routes those two if you don't have those you're really going to be miserable and you're going to take a lot of drugs to not notice it
but those two actually wholesome dharmas those two when you don't have those two when you don't care about hurting each other others and you don't care about being hurt yourself when deluded people don't have those and they really get in big trouble
and they caused lots of trouble it's just terrible what happened when you don't have those too so those are good fears in a way
there's are wholesome factors for diluted people
they're not so miss that the for example being afraid to hurt people is not as miserable as hurting people
because when you because when you're hurt people
yeah it's worse to hurt people than be afraid of hurting people
the an organic tear like being a standing at the edge of a cliff
and that's not really big problem that's okay don't worry about that one and i don't know too many people that are really in anguish but fear it out at the fear they feel at the edge of a cliff i got to back away
it's not a big deal it's a good one
babies have it you know that at the edge of a could then it's not a big deal but the fear of hurting people fear of being hurt those are pretty helpful
and you ask that question pretty carefully thank you
and i didn't feel hurt and i hope you weren't
i thank you for he looked at a shock so i i'm sorry if that was system
so i can i was shocking but i appreciate you staying awake and
that you have enough good route to listen to this thank you so much
