Seizing the Ox: Recap and Discussion

See all series | See all talks

Teacher: Rodney Smith
Date: 2008-06-03
Venue: Seattle Insight Meditation Center



How do you resist the Ox catching you? How are you resisting the present moment? The present moment is the Ox and you betray it; it never leaves you. Keep an ongoing notebook of where your agenda takes precedent over what is actually occurring here and now. That is where you are leaving the Ox. Make notations about your reason for departure (i.e., “needed to control the outcome, too unpleasant and had to leave, wish it could last forever.”) See if themes result from a few days of notation. Take one of those themes and study it carefully, noticing what your resistance is offering you (why you perpetuate this theme) and the pain it is causing.
