Aspiration and Wise Action

J teaching - Version 2 At 50,000 feet you can grasp the enormity of things.

On the runway, you see the details.

This week's talk explores three elements that align the 50,000 foot view with the details on the ground.

Imagine your thoughts, speech and actions aligned not only with your intention, but with the laws of nature.  Imagine knowing your life is aligned in a way that cultivates a greater sense of ease and well-being.

This is the dance of "Wise View," "Wise Intention" and "Wise Effort," components of the road map laid out in Buddhist philosophy in the Eightfold Path.

This week's blurb:

Paying attention to three fundamental elements can make a huge difference in your life.

Wise View aligns you with reality.

Wise Intention aligns your attention with what is deeply and unalterably true and important in your life.

Wise Action aligns your thought, speech and efforts.

So often we forget what is most important and fall into to a life of reactivity, anxiety and fear. Pausing deeply and exploring how these three elements interact can not only support you in feeling more balanced, but can lead you to greater and greater happiness and inner peace, no matter how turbulent your life may be at times.
