Susan’s Playlists for January 7-11, 2013

inquiry 1This week, we focused on Inquiry in my classes:  allowing ourselves to experience both the pleasurable (in which case the inquiry was around how to sustain and increase that sensation) or painful/uncomfortable (in which case, we inquired into the suffering without needing to fix or change it).  Often when we sense something uncomfortable or painful, we treat it with distain, irritation or criticism…or we ignore it.  The invitation of Inquiry is to meet those difficult things with kindness, tenderness, and gentleness. In several classes, I mentioned the possibility of using the self-befriending words of Buddhist master Thich Nhất Hạnh:  “Darling, I care about this suffering.”  I’ve been saying this to myself often this week (since I confess I find myself pushing away uncomfortable feelings almost contantly!) and I’m finding some ease there.

I hope you do, too.

Love,

Susan
