“Nowhere to Go; Nothing to Do”
What would our lives look like if we took time to explore and really ponder this teaching that is central to Buddhism? What would our lives look like if we completely stopped striving/ accomplishing/grasping/working long enough to really listen to that inner voice that has always known exactly who we are and what our life’s purpose is? How could we grow without the ever lengthening list of “to dos” and goals and “I’ll be happy when…..” scenarios? How can we free ourselves from the anxiety that comes from silencing our inner voice with our busyness? Lynne is looking forward to a discussion on what may be the most important meditation of all.
