Myoko Sensei starts this talk with an appreciation of the Zendo on a Sunday morning. She mentions an exhibit by a friend of surrealist art, and how it captures a sense of strangeness and familiarity. This leads to Myoko’s own struggle with time. Finding time, running out of time, not having enough time, and a general sense that there is always a better situation, with many “if only I had…” and “what I should be doing is…” thus creating a scattered sense of one’s self. This lack of trust in one’s self is a subtle but potent form of suffering that becomes a false reality. Myoko asks that we take a few breaths and enjoy our lives as the are. Recorded April 28th, 2018.
