Treasure Coast Dharma Group
Meditation 6:30 - 7:00
7:00 - 8:00 Discussion

Continuing our exploration of Chogyam Trungpa's book Training the Mind and Cultivating Loving-Kindness.
This week we are working with slogans #17 + #18

Mark, Richard, and Shanti will read and facilitate the group discussion. We can again expect interesting dialog and personal perspectives on these studies.

17: Practice the five strengths, the condensed heart instructions.

The five strengths are:
1. strong determination to train in opening the heart and mind;
2. familiarization with the practices (such as tonglen) that help you to do that;
3. the positive seed that is within you, experienced as a yearning to practice and wake up;
4. reproach, which is a tricky one for Western students but is an important practice: realizing that ego-clinging causes you to suffer, you delight in self-rejection, and honesty, and in seeing where you get stuck; and
5. the aspiration to help alleviate suffering in this world, expressing that intention to yourself.

a practice for Slogan #17
Pay attention to how you decide to spend your time. How much of your activity each day is intentional? Choose a day and try deliberately setting an intention to place whatever you are doing that day within the context of mindfulness and loving-kindness practice.

18. The mahayana instruction for ejection of consciousness at death Is the five strengths: how you conduct yourself is important.

When you are dying practice the five strengths (based on becoming a very familiar with them while you are alive).
1. Strong determination: Open and let go when the appearances of this world start to devolve.
2. Familiarization: Practice opening and letting go throuout your life so you will not panic as everything dissolves at death.
3. The positive seed: Trust that you have the innate ability to let go and have compassion for others.
4. Reproach: Realizing that thi9s limited identity isn't solid and is dissolving, do not indulge in trying to keep it from falling apart.
5. Aspiration : At death, aspire to spend all of your future lives in the presence of your teachers and to do your best to benefit others forever.

a practice for Slogan #18
Spend some time contemplating the things that make you afraid, and how you react. Contemplate times you are in pain, and how you deal with it. Notice whatever causes you to lose your mindfulness. Determine to hold the perspective of mindfulness and compassion even in the midst of fear, pain, or dying.

Meditation Service

Facilitated by John Pellicci, please join us on Wednesday evening’s beginning in July for a powerful group meditation and wisdom talk.
