Dharma Blog

I just found Daniel Ingram’s Dharma Blog, thanks to c4chaos. His writings are top notch! I find the best kinds of dharma talks are the ones that are meditations themselves. The words seem to have a way to link up to your consciousness and start to unravel your boundaries. Oh, by the way, I think it would be better to call this a “blook” as Ingram mentions. Specifically: Mastering the Core Teachings of the Buddha; An Unusually Hardcore Dharma Book. Not a bad idea!

Here is a snippet of the blook:

It should be noted that those who are passionate about practice and learning to actually practice correctly are much more likely to make progress than those who are not. Those who are able to channel all their rage, frustration, lust, greed, despair, confusion and anguish into trying to find a better way are the only ones who are likely to have what it takes to finally attain freedom. Those who are actually able to sit with the specific sensations that make up rage, lust, anger, confusion and all the rest with clarity, precision, acceptance of their humanity, and equanimity are even more likely to get enlightened. This paragraph deserves to be read more than once.
