In this week’s episode, Barb and Michelle continue their conversation about Barb’s silent retreat and her biggest takeaways, including the life-changing revelation she had during an interaction with mud. Follow us @MichelleMaros and @Peaceful_Barb and share your experiences with us @BarbKnowsBestPod or at www.michellemaros.com/podcast.
Buddhist tradition teaches there are two types of suffering:
- Suffering that leads to more suffering. This happens when we fuel that suffering with negative thoughts.
- Suffering that ends suffering. This occurs when we feel the feelings without letting the mind write stories that are not true.
From this retreat, Barb was able to recognize the deep sense of impermanence and how living in the present is how she can experience real joy. She learned how she had not truly been caring for herself, not receiving, just continuing to give without refilling her cup.
Compassion Meditation (Repeat to yourself)
I care about your suffering.
I care about your pain.
I care about you.
May you be free from your fears.
May you be peaceful and live with ease.
