Faith: Introduction

See all series | See all talks

Teacher: Rodney Smith
Date: 2003-05-05
Venue: Seattle Insight Meditation Center



Does your faith extend beyond your own empowerment? Is your life about you and your accomplishments? What holds reverence beyond the sense of you? What uplifts your spirit? How do you know it is true?

What keeps you coming back to meditation after a particularly difficult sitting? See if you can get a sense of what keeps you on your spiritual path. Is it belief or a confidence beyond knowing? Practice the phrase “Just surrender to the dharma” when a difficulty arises in your life or practice. Your job is to be mindful and know what is happening; let the dharma take care of the rest. See if inspiration and confidence come from repeating this phrase.
