Sunday Dharma Talk

Decisions

August 9, 2020

We shape our lives through the decisions we make from day to day, moment to moment.  It's through the practice of heedfulnes that we're able to make decisions and take actions - big actions and subtle actions - that will lead us to true happiness in this life.  This talk was given in 2014 at the Downtown Meditation Community Sunday night class.

"Just as the footprints of all legged animals are encompassed by the footprint of the elephant, and the elephant's footprint is reckoned the foremost among them in terms of size; in the same way, all skillful qualities are rooted in heedfulness, converge in heedfulness, and heedfulness is reckoned the foremost among them."
(AN 10.15)
