APPAMADA

Retirement Group - a rich sangha gathering

We met at Laurie Winnette's house last Saturday to share with each other our current concerns.  I was tired and debated whether I would go.  As usual, I was uplifted by the depth of our sharing and the support we gave one another.  That kind of personal openness and support  for each other happens with dharma friends.  I am grateful to have such a group in my life.

A lot happened in those two hours!

I felt the same way; dharma friends are vitally important.

 

 

Appamada is not just the occasional mindful thought or attentive state of mind, it’s actually a commitment to being attentive. It’s more than just a meditative state of mind, it’s more than just being mindful. It has to do with that primary ethical or moral orientation we have in life, with which we bring into being whatever activity we’re engaged in. Whether in formal meditation, in our interactions with other people, in our social concerns, or in our political choices, it’s the energetic cherishing of what we regard as good.
