Lions Roar : March 2017
3. Reestablish dominion over your world. Your life—your home, family, friends, workplace, body, abilities—is your king- dom. You have full rulership there. What can you do for your world? What or who needs tending? What needs to be added or eliminated? This is a time to look squarely at the piece of land that you are responsible for. Because all bets are off, we could feel encouraged to focus on what is really essential. Most important, we could focus on removing every obsta- cle that stands between us and doing our true work in the world. We need you to own your brilliance, stop pulling punches, and offer your gifts. 4. Express your love for your brothers and sisters. On one level, this means recognizing the vast tribe that feels as you do right now— that there is no place in America for hatred, racism, misogyny, anti-Semitism, homophobia, or religious intolerance. Reach out to each other. Affirm your friendship. But please don’t stop there. You could also recognize the vast tribe that does not feel as you do right now. I’m not suggesting that we get all snuggly with hatemongers, but to acknowledge that we are all Americans. If we excise tens of millions of our brothers and sis- ters from our minds and hearts, we add innumerable steps to the path out. 5. Finally: feel what you feel. As best you can, don’t pretend you aren’t scared, sad, angry, and shocked. There’s no problem having those feelings, as painful as they are. What is a problem is to avoid what you feel and then, as humans tend to, work it out on some- one else by vilifying them. This is very dangerous. We stand at the intersection of tolerance and hatred. I’m not saying there aren’t terrible people who shouldn’t be held accountable for the things they have done. But biting the hook of grasp- ing, aggression, or numbness prevents us from seeing clearly the best course of action to take our country back. ♦ Japanese Incense since 1705 www.shoyeido.com LEARN MORE AT PACIFICZEN.ORG 2017 Long Retreats Winter January 16–22, 2017 Santa Sabina Center San Rafael, CA Summer July 16–3, 2017 Mount Madonna Center Watsonville, CA Fall October 7–14, 2017 Angela Center Santa Rosa, CA A NEW WAY OF ZEN WITH THE TEACHERS AND COMMUNITY OF PACIFIC ZEN INSTITUTE 2017 Open Mind Retreats Spring March 23–26, 2017 Commonweal Center Bolinas, CA Summer August 17–20, 2017 Commonweal Center Bolinas, CA MEDITATION CONVERSATION PRIVATE TEACHING ART WRITING KOANS STORIES AN OLD WAY OF ZEN LION’S ROAR | MARCH 2017 22
