Link to Sangha Live Recording: Sitting with Pointlessness – Living with Potentiality
During a recent retreat, the teachers’ instruction was to hold the question ‘What is this?’ in mind. While sitting on the cushion, the thought struck me that my life is futile! I am genetically programmed for survival and sex; everything else is just distracting window-dressing.
This talk explores the journey from the apparent ‘futility’ of human existence to the ‘fertility’ of human experience; the crossing from pointlessness to potentiality.
