This week @ Beaches Sangha



Hi all.

This week @ Beaches, Sylvie is leading us again. This time our topic is generosity. This is one of my favourite topics. It's a really powerful part of practice; indeed Gotama said that if we knew what he knew about generosity, we wouldn't let a day go by without practising it. It's also a part of practice that can be easily hijacked by 'shoulds', the desire to please or gain approval from others, or to look benevolent. Intention is important.

Come and explore it with us on Thursday.

Here's another Rilke quote for the week:

"I beg you, to have patience with everything unresolved in your heart and to try to love the questions themselves as if they were locked rooms or books written in a very foreign language. Don't search for the answers, which could not be given to you now, because you would not be able to live them. And the point is to live everything. Live the questions now. Perhaps then, someday far in the future, you will gradually, without even noticing it, live your way into the answer."
