Saddha: Unshakeable Confidence

With Martin Aylward recorded on January 8, 2023.

So many of us feel assailed by doubt, anxiety and insecurity. Unhelpful self-talk, along with the uncertainties of the world, heighten and reinforce thought tendencies. Dharma practice helps us recognize and uproot ingrained patterns, and also to establish trust, confidence and fearlessness. Our first Sunday Sangha of 2023 will inquire into what is deeply trustworthy, and point towards a confidence that is unshakeable — regardless of circumstance or preference, life or death.

Wow! Powerful, funny/real poem said somuch. I will carry that image of the two tigers two mice and a strawberry with me from now on. And what a great lesson, for me, at least, in being aware of where I am investing my trust/confidence. Some new thoughts for me – thank you!
