Joey guided our reflections on doubt, sparking our discussion with excerpts from two dharma talks: Joseph Goldstein on Doubt and Aversion and How They Influence our Lives and Practice
Tara Brach’s dharma talk, Trusting Our Secret Beauty, can be found here
Though time prevented even an excerpt of a third talk being included in our time Sunday morning, for those who wish to explore Doubt further, Joey recommended a talk by Kristen Katz on the role of Faith in Buddhist practice.
The wonderful Rilke poem quoted was an excerpt from the Duino Elegies:
The nothing you are grasping
Do you still not know how little endures?
Fling the nothing you are grasping
out into the spaces we breathe.
Maybe the birds
will feel in their flight
how the air has expanded.
