saturday
i just via
the bodhisattva morning which is more patterns and renewal of the bodhisattva precepts
and i've been thinking about that and i wanna try something
all different to this morning
my bad as a context
seven something about the yeah
the notion of the precepts as our north star
ah and mrs something that bothers teachers has spoken of a lot
silver star ah
of history
and cosmological history ah
the social history about the north star and in astronomy astrology cosmology and so forth ah
northstar is also it's polaris it's the pole star ah and when it's known for his it generally or
the holds of possession that's very close to it hold still in the sky in and watch it in the northern hemisphere
ah and i saw online as i was researching this yesterday it's like ah
time-lapse photography what it shows us if you focus on and north star yet on the center and all the other stars
the the trial as the earth is going round ah yes circles around and one store i don't quite more as at it's it's really it's really beautiful so the entire mobile sky moves around this point
ah because it's all applaud
no exactly at the restaurant or at paul ah so much the wrong
donna worth
yeah remember ah
yeah him
our were drinking gourd
ah from that goes back town boss where it goes back to burma samurai in civil rights movement is a question of way while it's provenance was but proposal was advised to people who are on her soaps were escaping from the underground on the underground railroad
the who are they not a ticket north and so ah that would follow
a drink and go up with a bit deeper
and the term top stories of the depot if you follow over alignment ah it points to the north star so ah gets kind of the the message of that song to gets the that's the bidens you know a naturally accomplice you just need to know
woolworths store is to have a new direction
he also has your has your first paris and you stretch your arms sideways my right hand is gonna be pointing to missed
at last count is coming pointing to west
a strong land rather say in the northern hemisphere
it was interesting work to polaris that worked at me sad as a star it's like four hundred and thirty light years away
but it's actually
a triple star system
ah it's it's three stars so it's like ah catherine been a supporter what a tragedy or and framework pages three and one
and what's that that's what we're saying
so this cosmology was wrong improvement ah through every culture
and you'll find it an improbable time in india but then ah in and on tantric buddhism and also and then he a chinese buddhism and was involved in town for shingon
and attended school in japan
they they had a daddy
more can both add some who was ah
the bani saad for
basically who were presented and resided ah yeah
in polaris in the north star
yeah
morgan was a protector
protected all of us and my song often depicted ah
not a sword a sword of wisdom standing on a turtle
ah of gonna get around but not not so fast
but by steadily
and that's just the wilson
i just think atmospheric here ah ha
the real question is ah
how do i ask north star
and the are conscious of kick i took note on as develop the site this discussion for the precepts as a whole i like the what store
the riding the by orient our life
as my hand sauce and as since september she says the precepts are not commandments
fascist guides by watch me adjust our minds and north star yes
something council's direction it's not a destination
that's about that's an important point because it's not a destination you know never
going to arrive at the north star
you're never going to arrive at our young bodies at some perfection
of the precepts where he never strong from him but in fact
this blog or practice just like the wanna sit with our barney's exam
the lines wander off when our bodies wander off if i find cannot star
what can i try to the direction that we intend to be moving in
so
he's just a part of
why in cash it
i'm gonna try important events reliable
because mobile land and abroad on land and some kind of uncharted ah wilderness or ah
a year on the same ah we can always find the north star
can want i walked ourselves in relationship to that
so
my press would kidnap hand smoke so few steps of the precepts as a whole and as the north stars has an orange store
ng something that will be dying
a chaplaincy training program where i've been working for the last seven years yes
ah
halloween even a one or more tightly
more back
what one might consider
runs north star present one song
the facade that
drawing from from all the bodhisattva precepts like you've just recited and a renewed ah
what is the essence of bad in terms of law practice in terms of how you off or how you want to live
and ah what's the essence of that
as
why not stay you can return him when as is inevitable we straight away
what was it was a temple we lose their composure when their patients
i spot perhaps on skillfully
yep on that occasion
it's really helpful to have something a principle
can i travel channel and it's also very helpful for me i find it this is what we've been domain and or a chaplaincy training or to actually have it in words for oneself
tobacco tax wasn't herself so that you can hear myself saying it and redirect yourself
so does i can't have had a couple of examples ah
for some small for my a non-stop precept that has come up and came up how house
dialogue why
and out of on
then sometimes challenge in reality of of community life
oh
more people rather than inside the pacing santa money or whatever coming near in for people who are in need
and they come to your bar or they've come to you in the street or whatever and the same
more vast and it's
it seems until fall overwhelmed by that and since at to to actually
ah
follow the rules on which the person maybe overwhelmed
and were more responsive were sensitive to that we we get that
so
principal when i've been working more than a conclusion i both have been in a row row we don't talk about it very much anymore
ah because ever get somebody close but it boils down to have ah for roads
i will not abandon you
when someone comes in vast mad
i have my mobile phone tonight what the person
ah first i need
but i won't cut away from them
and you know i don't donate a more able to meet every need but
i was nineteen i had and you know you can knock on our door or class at any time
hello i don't make an offer
samsung if it is true
in context them obasanjo ah
the founder was not going to be able to supply everyone who walks in here with food and clothing and housing
but while i turn anyone away from the practice and was fundamentally what we have to offer ah so that i want abandoned you
i thought soldier
so not
ten episodes your
ghost or pressure but i've taken as a current teaching ah number such law
katrine anyone or anything like an object
so about to trump whatever one encounters robots whether it's a person for roberts this cup to travel as part of myself
so tetradic subjectively
plants are examples
ha
i'm sure
examples ah and
what i would like to down
yes all time malice take a few moments for some insurers to take a few moments and consider what my vulnerable at store and precept
think about putting words
we'll take a couple of minutes to do that however likely to turn to somebody cause more next time and will take a few minutes from downtown french person to share with over frozen
and a
enamel switch
if you're so inclined maybe we can hear some of them so it's
find your stab a posture
when you press
how they just kept a couple of minutes and sounds yes

my running
i don't want to go
i i just want the
how how i want you to find what is the same show was central to you as a human being to live
exactly
personalize it for him to set makes sense okay so let's have a couple of minutes of silence in
how you out of it

what's your folks and just
improves on that for a minute

how can just over time
so find someone close tail and turn towards them and let's take about two minutes ah
this tell our to share decide which one goes for share what you are most toy preceptors and if the person so just hang out a second for personal listening needs clarification and for the first person has said it and maybe explicate and a little
find ask as question or to process was love at the time and then the name was given a cure will switch okay begin
