Cycle of death and rebirth
In the last several series of the UnMind podcast, we have been exploring some ways of intentionally bringing Zen practice to bear on various situations and circumstances of daily life in America. By extension these might apply anywhere on the globe today, where revolutionary changes in technology and exploding population growth have taken hold. Again, as Matsuoka Roshi would often say, “Civilization conquers us.” In navigating the deeper waters of Buddhism, this world — including so-called “civilization” — is sometimes referred to as the “Ocean of Samsara.” Samsara is likewise referred to as the “Saha world of Patience,” in that it tries our patience — unrelentingly, and on a daily basis. Just when things seem to be going swimmingly, “Someone is always coming along to take the joy out of life,” as Grandma Nelly would often say. “Saha” is defined on Wikipedia as: It is the place where both good and evil manifests and where beings must exercise patience and endurance (kṣānti). Buddha likened his Dharma teachings to a raft, one that we ride — read: “cling to for dear life!” — sailing across the ocean of Samsara to the “other shore,” Nirvana. There are various turning points in the process of navigating the roiling waters — some positive, some negative — as with everything else in life. Whether they appear as positive or negative is largely a matter of interpretation, of course. The famous Ox-Herding Pictures illustrate various turning points on the Path, generalized to fit most anyone's journey into what I call “The Original Frontier,” the title of my first book on Zen. By the original frontier I mean to point to the frontier of mind, itself. This is the frontier that Shakyamuni Buddha discovered, and entered, some 2500 years ago. It beckons to us still, today. Perhaps the first turning-point in the process of spiritual awakening precedes discovering the hoof-prints of the ox, the first of the ten illustrations. These marks are sometimes interpreted as indicating one's first inkling of the existence of the teaching, or buddha-dharma. The hoofprints resemble brush strokes, the obvious analogy being to the written record, which consisted of scrolls of painted calligraphy in ink in those times. Translation into today's printed book format comprises the medium by which most of us first stumble across buddha-dharma. However, something else — a prior turning-point— has to precede this event. In order to begin the quest for enlightenment, one has to feel that something is missing in their life. Otherwise, why would you even be looking? Master Dogen touches on this in his tract called Genjokoan (“actualizing the fundamental point”): When you first seek dharma you imagine that you are far away from its environsBut dharma is already correctly transmitted you are immediately your original self We are blithely skipping along with our everyday life, fat and happy, when one day it occurs to us: Is that all there is? “What's it all about, Alfie?” However normal our circumstances may seem at the time, and however rich and full our life may appear, there seems to be something that is not quite right, something missing. Matsuoka Roshi emphasized this as the source of our anxiety, uncertainty, and the very unsatisfactoriness of Buddhism's definition of dukkha, or suffering. Everyone feels this dis-ease, and some eventually come to Zen, to find what is missing. Other turning points in life can precipitate a crisis of confidence, one which drives us to Zen in the first place, or makes us question whether Zen is really right for us. Or whether it works at all, for anyone. Let's take a brief look at a few of the more obvious turning-points that come up with some frequency in life. These are FAQs brought up in private interview (J. dokusan) or practice discussion, from time to time. Perhaps you may see yourself in one of these pictures. Changing JobsOne of the most stressful turning-points that many people face today, and with ever-increasing frequency, is the need to change jobs. This may come about through a personal decision, or one made by one's employer. Or one's partner may receive an offer they cannot refuse, but it requires moving to another part of the world. In any case, the resultant demand for engaging in a job search, interviewing, and starting the new job, can be fraught and disruptive. Some worry that they can not afford to continue their Zen practice during the transition, either from considerations of availability of time, or from a financial perspective, or both, as a supporting member of the Zen community. These judgments may not be true, or fully thought through, but the pressure feels very real at the time. Zen practice — at home, or in a community — should not really be considered as necessitating an expense of either time or money, certainly not an expensive proposition. Zen is about the middle way between extremes, all about finding and maintaining balance in all things. In this sense, Zen is free. And portable. When going through a job change, or any other stressful turning-point, you may need Zen meditation more than ever. It will help you to make the right choices and decisions, if you allow it. When you get back on your feet, and find yourself in a more stable position — financially and otherwise — there will be plenty of time and wherewithal to support your sangha, and your teacher. You really cannot afford not to continue practicing Zen, and even more so when you are in dire straits. “Zen will get you through times of no money better than money will get you through times of no Zen.” (With apologies to the Fabulous Furry Freak Brothers.) DivorceDivorce, along with its true antecedents — unrequited love, unfaithfulness, or irreconcilable differences — is an even bigger bugaboo in today's society than losing your job. Though you might not think so, based on the treatment of divorce in pop media. It is often the theme of comedy; the butt of alimony jokes; a target of shadenfreude; and, in some recently publicized cases, even celebrated — with ceremonies akin to a wedding. Divorce often accompanies, or triggers, a change in employment and residential status as well. They say “bad things come in threes.” It is tempting to suggest that, if you are against divorce, just don't get married in the first place. This may sound less crass, and may make more sense, in the context of the life of monastics. But we do not pretend to be Zen monks or nuns. They surely have their critical turning-points as well. Householders may just have a lot more of them on a daily basis, especially given the complex society of today. I have been divorced once in my short life, and it is no fun. But the situation that led to the divorce was no bed of roses, either. Whatever the circumstances, divorce is definitely a turning-point. Whether it is “for better or worse” (a resonance on the wedding vows), it is, again, your call. If both sides are better off afterwards — as Buddha is said to have said about a “just war” — it may be considered a just divorce. Of course, there are always more than two sides to the dispute. Children often end up as pawns in the game, suffering even more short-term pain and long-term consequences than their parents do. Zen meditation is not a panacea, but can help to adjust to the new reality, even in these dire straits. Empty NestersSpeaking of parenting, there comes a time-of-life phase called “empty-nester,” at which point the rugrats are finally, and permanently (or so we hope) kicked out of the nest. Sometimes divorce follows on the heels of this exodus, and not coincidentally. The parents may keep the failed marriage together long past its shelf life, “for the sake of the children.” They may have decided to have children to “save the marriage” in the first place. In the context of professional market research, based on sociology, I suppose, there are various such “time-of-life” categories, tracing the normal flow of maturation, through biological and culturally-determined changes, from womb to tomb. Like most other models from the soft sciences, these are employed mainly to structure the marketing of goods and services. In the next episode of UnMind we will continue looking at turning points in our life, and how our practice of Zen meditation may help ease the transitions, and mitigate the sense of loss, as we move through the inevitable phases of “time-of-life.” As we witness the evolution of our own life, the evidence of the centrality of the teachings of Buddhism and Zen becomes ever more apparent, and not at all as pessimistic as they may have first appeared to us. The inevitability of aging, sickness and death, interpreted as negative developments in life, is accompanied by an increasing appreciation of their meaning and significance, and the importance of what we do with the opportunity. The good fortune of having been exposed to the Dharma and thereby being enabled to practice Zen and zazen in the context of the passing of time, is the real treasure of the Three Treasures. Please continue in your pursuit of Zen, no matter what stage of life you may be in.

ZEN AT WORK, AT HOME, AT PLAY This segment of UnMind is based on some questions raised by one of the members of ASZC. While she moved out of the Atlanta area, she stays in touch through weekly participation in my Online Dharma Dialog program. As an aside, if you think you may be interested in establishing a dialog about your practice, let me know via email — you can find my address on the ASZC web page. This person was not born in the USA, and so has the compound complications in her daily life of assimilating into a foreign culture, and communicating in a second language, much as Matsuoka Roshi had to do in bringing Zen to America back in 1940. Her questions are as insightful and revealing as Sensei's choice of areas of life in America to relate to Zen in his dharma talks. We will be publishing many of them in a new collection called “A Pioneer of American Zen: The Wisdom, Warmth and Wit of Soyu Matsuoka, Roshi.” Keep a sharp eye out for it in June of next year. Let us turn to her questions, addressing each of them from a perspective of Zen and Design Thinking. They are primarily about relationships with other people, and how they affect your relationship to yourself, if that is not too redundant. We will take them on in a slightly different order than submitted, beginning with those that have to do with the work environment, and the community of colleagues we find there. These work-related issues, taken together, come under the rubric of “Right Livelihood,” on the traditional Noble Eightfold Path of Buddhism. 1. How does one practice being grounded, or doing the right thing, in a competitive world? The answer to any such question, from a Zen perspective, will necessarily include taking the issue to the cushion, in zazen, and then bringing any conclusions and recommendations from what transpires on the cushion back to the office, laboratory, or whatever context in which you find yourself working. Let's contextualize this issue a bit to begin with, looking at the bigger picture before boiling it down to any personally actionable items. I think it necessary and reasonable to suggest, and to take into account, that the very nature of the zeitgeist of right livelihood in our times adds to the stress load that we are carrying on our shoulders today. This is not your daddy's job market. And it certainly is not the one that Buddha confronted, nor any of the other Zen masters in the lineage from India, China, or Japan. The very scope of manifold options available today, choosing between jobs and side hustles that may seem to offer advantages in terms of flex-time or working from home, versus employer preferences for dragging you into the office — entailing social dimensions of in-person contact with associates and management — may simply add to the frustration of making the right choice of career, and its accompanying working modality, for each individual. Choices between careers that allow for remote employment and those that don't are becoming yet another factor in whether one chooses to train in various trades, or aspire to what used to be called “higher learning.” This so-called higher learning basically amounts to preparation for a professional trade, instead of one based on hands-on skills and hourly labor, quaintly referred to as “blue-collar” jobs, or the Hard Working Americans politicians love to talk about. As if they themselves are hard-working. Many are opting for the simplicity of the latter, where they may make a dependable living wage, in many cases higher than their counterparts, in what used to be called “white-collar” occupations. Naturally, time-of-life considerations come into play, as articulated by those who research these kinds of issues, such as part-time student employment, married with children, empty nester, the “sandwich generation,” and so forth. Daily life is so complicated these days that we may need to develop the “Sixteen Noble Truths,” and the “Fifty-four-fold Noble Path.” One dimension being paying off student debt. As testament to the scale of complexity of this question, if you search “being grounded in a competitive world,” you get: About 688,000,000 results (0.44 seconds) Somewhere in that virtual warehouse full of pages you may find the kind of advice that fits your situation, but it is entirely possible that you will not. Access to unlimited information is not necessarily a solution to this problem, or any other aspect of living a Zen life, in the midst of the chaos of modern society. More information just adds insult to injury. But from the perspective of Design Thinking and Zen, let's consider just the single aspect of what we mean by “competition.” Here, let's include a second, corollary question: 2. How to avoid harboring resentment when you are with the same people on a daily basis, and you have some history [of conflict]. I developed a couple of concepts for exhibits, working with some of the subcommittees and sponsoring corporations in the leadup to the 1996 Summer Olympics here in Atlanta, who were then marketing the event around the emergent issues of recycling, reusing, and repurposing of waste materials. The various Atlanta-based sponsors wanted to get credit for their efforts in this endeavor, for being “environmentally friendly,” touting its implications for the ecosystem, the “good citizenship” of corporations, and so on. In one of many meetings, it dawned on me, with startling clarity, that the seeming distinction between competition and cooperation is one without a real difference. That is, in team sports, such as basketball or soccer, the outcome is usually determined by which team manages to better cooperate amongst its members, beating those who are beset by individuals showing off, “hot-dogging,” “show-boating,” and often missing the play that another member might have made. Sports that are more dependent upon individual performance, such as skiing, speed skating, or swimming, are less dependent upon collaboration. That is, until one takes into consideration the training process that leads to elite performance. The athletes' collaboration with their coach or coaches, and their level of ability to take direction, as well as the wisdom of the coaching staff, become determinative factors in their success. For athletes already at or near the top of their game, the coach does not have to move their dial very much, raising the bar as high as humanly possible. Think Michael Jordan, or Katie Ledecky. However, as in Zen meditation training, if the athlete is not willing to do the work, no amount of coaching, however skillful, is going to help. Bringing it back down to earth, one thing to consider is a truism: the strongest competition is to be found in cooperation. Or, better, collaboration. And remember, the modern theory of collaboration is that it is only possible, or at least most doable, between two individuals. Think Lennon and McCartney. Or Lenin and Trotsky. If you are suffering from “bad boss syndrome,” or feeling excluded from the good-old-boy network at work, try homing in on each of your apparent competitors — or, worst-case, enemies — one at a time. Get them alone in a private setting, non-threatening and away from the fray, off-campus and out-of-office. Interview them as to their aspirations, beyond the obvious goals and objectives in the company. See if you cannot find some common ground on which to build a better, more collaborative relationship, while still keeping it professional. Try this with all your co-workers. Begin with the least competitive to yourself and work your way up the ladder. Remembering the old nostrum: Be kind to those you meet on your way up the ladder; they will be the same ones you meet on the way down. On the personal front, remember to foster the “halo effect” of Zen, in particular the three dispositions of zazen, when you find yourself stressing out at your work station or in the board room. Assume the posture. Follow the breath, counting if necessary. Expand your attention to include everything, without bias. As the ancient Ch'an poem encourages us: Move among and intermingle without distinction. Your body and mind will appreciate it — including your neuronal networks, heartbeat, and endocrine system. So will your fellow workers. They may begin wondering, and asking, how you can be so calm? when everyone else is freaking out, usually over trivia. Extensions of this approach include chanting on the commute, meditating while walking through the campus and buildings where you work, and treating the vicissitudes of the day as Dharma. Buddha's teaching, and the practice of Zen, is only one thing. But that “one thing” is all-inclusive. The Yogi welcomes adverse circumstance as grist to the mill. “Through change, consume change,” as the ancient admonition has it. And change, after all, is all there is. You will never run out of it. Next time we will look at other more personal aspects of relationships, expressed in other incisive questions from the same, sincere source. If you find such issues bubbling up in your everyday swim in the ocean of Samsara, please don't hesitate to send them to me — again, you may find my email on the ASZC web page. And check out my two available books on this timelier-than-ever subject: “The Original Frontier”; and “The Razorblade of Zen” (see links in the post). Meanwhile, keep on sitting. Someday you will find your zazen to be “still enough,” and for “long enough,” to overcome all obstacles at work, at home, and at play.

“Cycle of Birth and Death”, also known as Samsara, comes from ancient origins in Hinduism and the magical thinking of reincarnation. In Buddhism however, this term is used to communicate the idea of momentum in moment-to-moment instantiation of karma.

In Buddhism, the concept of "emptiness" (Sunyata) is a fundamental teaching that refers to the absence of inherent existence or independent selfhood. All things, including our self, are empty of inherent existence. The notion of a fixed, permanent, and independent self is an illusion. The concept of emptiness is closely associated with the teaching of dependent origination (Pratityasamutpada), which explains that all phenomena arise and exist dependently on other factors. In other words, everything in existence is interdependent and lacks a separate, inherent essence. When applied to the self, emptiness suggests that there is no autonomous, enduring self that exists apart from the ever-changing and interconnected nature of phenomena. Instead, the self is regarded as a fluid, composite entity, constantly influenced and shaped by various causes and conditions. Belief in a substantial, inherently existing self leads to attachment, craving, and suffering. It is a form of ignorance (avidya) that obscures the true nature of reality. By understanding emptiness of the self, one can overcome attachment, cultivate wisdom, and ultimately attain liberation from the cycle of suffering (Samsara). It is important to note that emptiness does not imply nihilism or the non-existence of the self. Rather, it emphasizes the lack of inherent, independent existence. The self does exist conventionally; it is a conventional designation. Understanding conventional truth, we see how labeling all the things in our world allow us to interact with each other and do things. The self we relate to is a product of interdependent causes—always changing—rather than an enduring, fixed entity. Conventionally we do function in certain ways. Actions of body, speech and mind are generally beneficial, neutral, or harmful. Most actions are neutral: breathing, brushing our hair, driving unless we're cutting someone off or something. If most of our actions are beneficial or neutral, that would cause people to label us as a good person. If a person does profoundly harmful things to others, with few good actions and many neutral actions, people would probably label them a bad person. Someone who frequently steals or physically abuses their partner, for example, might be labeled a bad actor who needs to be off the streets. But if that same bad actor turned his life around and started performing many good and beneficial actions while stopping their harmful actions, they would then be labeled a good person. Labels like good and bad are not stuck to a person, they aren't inherent, because the way a person functions changes. All the labels we've been called from “hardworking” to “angry” only exist for as long as we function in a way that supports that label. We can change. We aren't inherently anything. A blade can be used to kill someone in anger, then it's a weapon, or it can be used as a tool to cook a nutritious meal. The blade could be a surgical instrument to remove a tumor. Whether we call it a weapon or a tool for good depends on how it is used. That is the same with our body and minds. Do we mainly use our speech as a tool for good or a weapon? Because we are an empty self, we can change and function in any way we choose. By changing certain ways we function, we will be able to let go of painful labels and exist in more healthy ways. To look honestly at ways we are functioning that harm ourselves or others requires compassion for ourselves. Compassion is the wish that someone doesn't suffer, and it is a warm, loving mind. Practicing this self compassion helps us to see that we are a Buddha in the making, currently caught in the thorns of anger, attachment, and ignorance. Rather than grasping at our deficiency, we try to develop the compassion that sees our limitations as temporary. In fact, we simply need to create the causes to experience the permanent peace and bliss of enlightenment. Buddha taught that for all beings, our destiny is enlightenment. Anyone who doesn't cherish as “mine” Anything of body-and-mind And who doesn't grieve for that which doesn't exist, Is indeed called a bhikkhu.

“Attachment” is a mind-state often referred to as Samsara. It is a state of identification of our perception of “self” and has little to do with the actual objects of our cravings. E-books available on threefoldlotus.com http://threefoldlotus.com/home/ebooks.htm
I will not be polarized, Into love/hate, left or right, But ask all the questions and have the conversations, That lead me into the light. ☉ PS. Those pics at the end of the Pele Report of the island of Mallorca, where I will be doing a retreat this September! Check it out here: https://bit.ly/kaypacha-mallorca-2023 Ya know what? WE are the union of opposites! We contain the six major polarities within us, as revealed by our birth charts. Not only that, but it's a very graphic representation of reality as the 12 houses (composed of 6 opposites) get larger and larger the farther away they get from the center, which symbolizes the core of our being. Balancing those six major polarities in our psyche/soul brings us to the center of our being, and I like to think up, up, up, and outta here! So this week, with the Cancer Sun/Mercury (all week) opposite the Capricorn Moon (Monday), we all get to balance the polarity of our personal lives (Cancer) with our professional lives (Capricorn). I call this Cancer/Capricorn polarity the "security axis," with Cancer being emotional and Capricorn being physical/financial security. Remaining centered in this polarity requires that we balance our need for action and achievement/recognition in the outer world with honoring our inner emotional needs for home, roots, and safety. This represents another polarity in addition to what I discussed in the video, that of the left brain (linear/logical/rational) with the right brain (intuitive). On top of that, we have the full Moon (feelings and inner child) opposite Mercury (thinking and communicating), so that's a lot of balancing going on! The opposition indicates tension between the opposites, but as mentioned, this tension leads to conscious awareness. Let's all step into the light!

Hell to PayHaving sown the wind,we are reaping the whirlwind.Mother Nature's pissed.WHAT IF THIS IS HELL?The 1995 hit song released by Joan Osborne: “What if God was one of us?” reminded me of another mythical story called “The Rabbi's Gift.” It is a tale of a rabbi visiting and giving a talk at a Christian monastery fallen on hard times, in which he suggests that one of the few remaining monks may actually be the Messiah in disguise. The monks come to embrace this notion as a distinct possibility, a What if…surely not myself, but maybe any one of you…may indeed be the promised Second Coming? and this very idea results in the revitalization of the monastery. What with all the events happening in the world today, and within my living memory, the present seems to be an OCD reiteration of “the past as prologue.” This got me to thinking of another What if?: What if this Earth — and by extension, the whole present universe — is not positioned somewhere between heaven and hell, but actually is Hell, itself? Capitalized to indicate not the relative, everyday hell of good versus evil, but the Biblical realm of absolute Hell? Leaving aside for the moment the other possibilities, such as whether or not there may be a heavenly realm somewhere else, or another universe existing as a kind of purgatory — sandwiched between a paradisical slice of existence and a hell realm — as earthly existence is often conceived. Not in the subjunctive or speculative sense, but in harsh reality. While in the throes of redrafting my recent “DharmaByte” published monthly in our STO newsletter, to post as this podcast, she who shall remain nameless informed me that a relatively obscure but famous-in-certain-circles writer, Cormac McCarthy, had died recently, at 89 years of age. At my age the obits form an increasingly noticeable, and frequent, focus. I followed the link to the online story, discovering that I was familiar with only one of his works, one that had been made into a movie, “No Country for Old Men.” What struck a chord for me was the following: Mr. McCarthy's fiction took a dark view of the human condition and was often macabre. He decorated his novels with scalpings, beheadings, arson, rape, incest, necrophilia and cannibalism. “There's no such thing as life without bloodshed,” he told The New York Times magazine in 1992 in a rare interview. “I think the notion that the species can be improved in some way, that everyone could live in harmony, is a really dangerous idea.” It would be a “really dangerous idea” to naively trust that human nature is basically good, and will out in a benevolent way, in dealings with loved ones as well as with strangers. I have been mildly rebuked for remarking that in Zen, we do not aspire to human nature; we aspire to buddha-nature. Some might like to believe that the two are synonymous, but I beg to differ. What we see on TV every day is reflective of human nature. What Buddha discovered and transmitted is the latter, a potential for spiritual awakening that all human beings are said to have. But sometimes, I must confess, I wonder if it is more likely that while many, most, or even all, human beings may have buddha potential; the likelihood of their realizing it is diminishingly small, approaching zero. Especially with the world population reaching its natural limit, approaching 10 billion, with resultant strain on limited resources. I believe the reason Matsuoka Roshi insisted that “Your enlightenment will be even greater than Buddha's” is simply because it is so much more difficult now. If you do manage to wake up as he did in simpler times, in the midst of all this distraction and tumult, it will be a big f'ing deal, to quote POTUS. Later in the report, a touch of McCarthy humor, sorely needed in these trying times: His characters were outsiders, like him. He lived quietly and determinately outside the literary mainstream. While not quite as reclusive as Thomas Pynchon, Mr. McCarthy gave no readings and no blurbs for the jackets of other writers' books. He never committed journalism or taught writing. He granted only a handful of interviews. Love that expression — he never “committed” journalism — as if it were a crime. I assume it to be a quote or paraphrase. Reminds me of the Tang dynasty Ch'an poem “Hokyo Zammai—Precious Mirror Samadhi” by Soto founder Tozan Ryokai that says, regarding buddha-dharma, “Just to portray it in literary form is to stain it with defilement.” There is nothing that cannot be defiled in some sense, reduced to brute vulgarity by the self-centered depredations of ignorant humankind. Our greater angels may never succeed in conquering our lesser devils. The arc of history may not, ultimately, bend toward justice. At least not human justice. This conjecture is not entirely alien to conventional Protestant Christianity, as I learned when participating as a panelist on an online Christian-inspired interfaith dialog originating in South Korea, with the mission of promoting world peace. Two junior Christian minister panelists, one from Africa, one from the US, went to great pains to explain, to our equally young audience, just how is it that a loving God could permit such atrocities as are daily fare on the news, and increasingly in our neighborhoods, a question that naturally comes up more and more frequently. They held that the doctrine of the Second Coming teaches that the Earth is currently, indeed, ruled by Satan; and that only when Christ is reborn on Earth will the Great Deceiver be defeated, and an eternal reign of peace on Earth will surely ensue. Some anomalies in this belief came out as well, such as that Christ redux will live a normal life after vanquishing the Devil — including marrying and fathering children — and will naturally die, when his time has come! They did not clarify whether he is expected to retire to heaven to receive his reward, letting the kids take over the planet, one supposes. But I was intrigued by the notion that this branch of theism allows for a kind of rebirth — as taught in classical Buddhism — if limited to the “one and only begotten son of God.” Whatever the future implications of my initial hypothesis — that we may literally be living in the real, one-and-only Hell — I think it reasonable that if we take an unblinking look at the operative conditions and emerging trends underway around the globe, for the moment ignoring their many possible causes, a telling description may emerge. A short list from the top of my head — and that you may feel free to embellish — includes, in no particular order: National leaders betraying their own citizens, and waging war on other nations, approving of the bombing of civilians, including children, all the while claiming some just, altruistic or noble motive. Religious leaders giving lip service to the gospel, benefiting from lavish lifestyles of the clergy, while abusing children and/or covering up the rapacious and predatory behavior of others. Charitable leaders pocketing proceeds and ripping off their donors based upon good intentions and genuinely charitable instincts of their victims. Government leaders at all levels promoting myths of free markets while on the take from the corrupting influence of lobbyists. Spouses cheating on, abusing and murdering spouses. Parents abusing and murdering children; children murdering parents. Employers abusing employees; employees murdering employers. Neighbors shooting neighbors; strangers killing strangers; psychotics shooting students, shoppers in stores, and partyers at festivals: in ever-greater numbers.I could go on, as could you, to include reemergent ethnic and racial animus. Or, my personal top three: climate change; widespread pollution; pop-up pandemics. Pick your favorite natural-cum-manmade disaster du jour. But this is getting a bit depressing. My basic question is: Does this not read like a fairly convincing, if not perfect, description of Hell? Or hell on Earth, at least? Isn't it surely going to get a lot worse before it gets better? And the human race will not be satisfied with pillaging and plundering only this poor planet. We may have “slipped the surly bonds of Earth,” but instead of touching “the face of God,” we are plotting to colonize the moon, as a stepping stone to another whole, fresh planet to plunder. Having recently launched its 27th space ship — more than our total launches in history — the private space industry in collaboration with NASA is planning to send astronauts on a ride around the moon and back, then to land on the moon once again, as a launching pad for a future junket to Mars. As a Sci-Fi junkie, I welcome these developments. But as a citizen, I regard them with a healthy paranoia, as to the intent and eventual use, or misuse, of our enhanced powers of world domination. Please indulge me in a flight of fancy: Let us suppose that in the more distant future, the Mars colony has expanded to a sizable portion of the planet, while still reporting back to Mother Earth. At a certain point, what if we make another game-changing discovery. After re-establishing a breathable atmosphere, as once enshrouded Mars, we have had the luxury of time to discover that, indeed, the planet once hosted life, which is earth-shaking enough. But further, that it was in fact once occupied by an advanced civilization of intelligent beings, as imagined by an early astronomer, who discovered what he took to be the “canals” of Mars. Suppose that we discover evidence of historical traces, indications of civilization, long obscured by eons of accumulated debris, much as we still find traces from ancient civilizations on Earth. Like Easter Island, say, but on a planetary scale. We were hoping to colonize, and bring to life, a brand new world, a do-over of the Earth we have left in tatters. But Mars is revealed to be an ancient world, perhaps much older than the tenure of humanity. We now know that Mars was once similar to Earth. But some cataclysm must have occurred, wiping out all life. Or somehow, its denizens managed to blow it up. With climate change looming back home — triggering all manner of natural disasters no longer exactly natural, but karmic consequences of humanity on a global level — we begin to accept the terrifying possibility that we may be truly alone in the universe. And that when and where life occurs, and even when it evolves to control its means of survival, a self-destructive Achilles' heel kicks in. Rather than as God's chosen people, privileged to live in what could have been a kind of earthly paradise, as we would like to believe, we are instead doomed to be reborn, again and again throughout eternity, into this vast, hellish chiliocosm. “When will they ever learn?” on an infinite, and eternal, scale. WHAT IF THIS IS SAMSARA?To wrap this up on a more positive note, the implications of Buddha's insight led to Buddhism's cosmology, which is not blindly optimistic, nor overly pessimistic. It places human existence on one of six planes, with three others below — the realms of animals and insects; hungry ghosts; and the “Avici hell” realm; and two others above — the realm of the Asuras or angry gods; and “Tusita heaven.” The model is based on various degrees of suffering or lack thereof, indicating that only human beings can come to full awakening as did Buddha, because our realm has a balance of just enough suffering, plus the ability to become aware of it as stemming from self-awareness, recognition of the problem being tantamount to solving it, the necessary antecedent to liberation. In the other five realms, there is either too much suffering to overcome, or too little to prod its denizens into the necessary realization, for transcendental awakening to occur. The polar extremes of existence are known as “Samsara” and “Nirvana.” It is thought to be possible, but not likely, that humanity will wake up from their deep sleep and realize the true Way. Which could be tantamount to world peace. But that this can happen does not mean that it is foreordained. It could go either way. It should be noted that this model is not taken as literal, and that whether we find ourselves in Samsara — the world of patience; or in Nirvana — the state of liberation; is entirely up to us; that is, what we individually and collectively do about it. Heaven and Hell are self-created, according to Buddhism. Master Dogen is said to have declared that actually, we do not go from the shore of Samsara to the other shore of Nirvana. The other shore finally comes to us. Matsuoka Roshi questioned the wisdom of spending your whole life yearning for an afterlife in a distant heaven that may or may not be there, rather than dedicating your attention to this life. Shohaku Okumura Roshi wryly commented in a dharma dialog at the Zen center, that everybody says they want to go to Nirvana. But if you go there, there is no one else there. Only bodhisattvas can go there, and they choose to stay here. So, he concluded, our mission is to transform this “ocean of Samsara” into Nirvana. I say to hell with all speculation. You will have to determine for yourself which approach suits you, which model is a higher approximation of your reality.

What were you wearing in the ‘90s, Slushies? Sleeveless flannel and crochet? Paco Rabanne? We're beguiled by Emily Pulfer-Terino's poems on this episode as we discuss how she slides us back to the ‘90s. She has us sniffing magazine perfume inserts and marveling at the properly cranky voice she invokes for an epigraph, borrowed from Vogue's letters to the editor. What were we thinking wearing all those shreds? Only the girls on those glossy pages know for sure. For more context, check out Karina Longworth's excellent podcast, You Must Remember This, and her recent deep dive into the bonkers eroticism of the 1990s. Plus, Sentimental Garbage's episode on Dirty Dancing featuring Curtis Sittenfeld. For a great collection of poems that draws its title from grunge-era jargon (kinda, sorta, wink, wink), we recommend a book we love by our pal Daniel Nester: Harsh Realm: My 1990s. This episode is brought to you by our sponsor Wilbur Records, who kindly introduced us to the artist is A.M.Mills whose song “Spaghetti with Loretta” now opens our show.

At least I'll know where to find my new wardrobe this year...in the nearest dumpster…talk about the Emperor's New Clothes. Tsk, tsk.”—(Letter to the Editor) What's more glorious than a girl in a field, curled in the whorl of a deer bed, alfalfa haloing her dreams of fashion magazines while she plies matted hay, untatting her world? Bales score the landscape, parceling endlessness, parsing this solo tableau, while her heroes wrench their music into being in Seattle, gray, time zones away. What's grunge if not her dense crochet of castoff couture curated from dumpsters and worn with a frisson of pride and shame: flowering nightgown, old ski boots, sweater turned lace in places by moths and age? And this field like where models pose in Vogue, each page itself a piece of land and an ethos framed inside a storyboard. Scala Naturae Like prying pods of milkweed so those astral seeds effuse— unseaming magazine ads for perfume. Anointing my wrists with scented glue, running each over the edge of a page, testing scents I aspired to buy and classifying my olfactory taxonomy. Grass evoked the world I'd known with hints of rain and magnolia slight as fog above an unmown field. DNA's rosemary, oakmoss, and mint, ancient and clear as purpose; glass spiraled bottle signifying sentience and enduring iteration. Both ethereal and hyperreal, Destiny offered apricots, orchids, and roses-- bottle opaque as an eyelid, veil of petals sheer as promise. Samsara was amber, sandalwood, ylang ylang, peach. Syllabically lulling, its s and a extending, repeating, suggesting endlessness. Cycle of birth and death rebranded as serenity in ongoingness. Angel's burst of praline and patchouli lit the crystal facets of that star, making heaven of my pulse and ordinary air.  Wynne Bittlinger, letter to the editor in Vogue US, February 1993

“A moving description of a life in practice which goes far beyond text-based ideas of prayer, devotion, guru-connection, or meditation, and most especially of tantric practice." Anne Klein, former Chair of the Department of Religion at Rice University. A ground-breaking book, The Magic of Vajrayana (Unfettered Mind Media, 2023) opens new doors to the Tibetan Buddhist tradition of Vajrayana, one of the most vibrant traditions of mystical practice in the world today. Ken McLeod deploys his considerable skills in translation, teaching, and writing to weave a rich tapestry of the core practices of this tradition and his experience with them. In simple clear English he immerses the reader in the practice of Vajrayana, bridging the gap between classical instruction and idealized descriptions of insights and understandings. Along with two of his previous books, Reflections on Silver River and A Trackless Path, The Magic of Vajrayana completes a trilogy of experiential instruction and guidance in the Tibetan tradition of Buddhism. As one of the first generation western practitioners and then teacher, Ken is a contemporary of famous teachers across the American, Canadian and British dharma figures. He both shares concerns with them and has made his own way. He is one of those who have sought to innovate, westernise and explore what happens to Buddhism when it is taken out of a traditional setting. Whether through his Pragmatic Dharma website, or his insistence on finding language that works for those he taught and now writes for, Ken has gone deep into Tibetan Buddhism whilst committing to finding ways to have it speak to westerners: he has in many ways been a key early figure in adapting and westernising Buddhism, specifically Mahayana and Vajrayana Buddhism from Tibet. Ken's latest book, The Magic of Vajrayana, is the topic of our conversation. In discussing it, we look at a variety of topics that relate to the practising life. What are magic and faith and what role do they have in the Tantric path. Opening to experience and how the path can enable this process. The role of power, and the guru. How mantras and deities can assist practitioners to wake up. The nature and role of reactive patterns and how to counter them. The role of language in opening up practices. Samsara. The future of Vajrayana in the West. Matthew O'Connell is a life coach and the host of the The Imperfect Buddha podcast. You can find The Imperfect Buddha on Facebook and Twitter (@imperfectbuddha).
