Lions Roar : November 2012
began his path with the insight that “all conditioned existence is marked with suf- fering.” The path to peace doesn’t come from avoiding suffering, he taught; it comes from facing and going through, rather than around, it. You can’t find peace in a troubled world by denying its trouble. Meditation practice makes denial impossible and truth sustainable. It is impossible to sit on a meditation cushion for any length of time without noticing suffering, within and without. But as con- sciousness opens up little by little during the course of a practice life, it becomes big enough and resilient enough to see and withstand great difficulty.

The gla- cier is clearly melting, for sure, but I really experienced it in terms of the most basic Buddhist teaching of impermanence: All conditioned things arise, abide for a time, and pass away. As far as we can tell, this particular glacier has completely melted and regrown many times over the last hundreds of thousands of years. This impermanence is also very impersonal. It doesn’t matter what we think about it, or how we feel about it, or how we vote, or what we drive. This impermanence is simply the nature of things.” This may sound like Joe is suggest- ing that we relax about climate change. But he’s not.
