Pathways To The Tao #5: I Am The Source Of All That I Perceive


  1. The next dialogical meditation will be held on Sunday, October 10th at 2 p.m. MST (that’s one hour later than the last one). I’ve included the relevant information at the bottom of this issue. If you’d like to attend, please express your interest in the comment section below.

  2. I intend to write the next bit on samskaras and send it out in the next week or two.

I Am The Source Of All That I Perceive

Below, you’ll find a recording of the first dialogical meditation held with others in this Substack group.

Ordinary Mind Is Tao

The following is a discursive meditation, akin to a Dharma talk, that was given at the September home sesshin.

Don’t Drop It!

The following is a second discursive meditation that was given, a few days later, at the same September home sesshin.

II. Date And Time

Here’s the second date:

  • Sunday, October 10th

and time (note: it starts one hour later than the last one):

  • 10 a.m. UTC (Hawaii)

  • 1 noon PST (SF, LA, etc.)

  • 2 p.m. MST (New Mexico: where my wife and I live)

  • 3 p.m. CST (Austin)

In case anything I’ve converted above is unclear or incorrect, you can use Time and Date Converter (enter in “Albuquerque, New Mexico” and “2 p.m. MST”) to confirm.

III. Practical Matters

If you plan to attend, please jump on the call 3-5 minutes beforehand so that we can all start at the precise time. Also, if you need to leave early, that’s OK; just don’t come to that particular dialogical meditation; wait for the next one. Leaving early takes the collective energy out of the room.

I’ll make sure that we conclude exactly 1 hr. 20 min. after we begin.
