A Single Excellent Night, Part 2

Bear Gokan Bonebakker, Senior Monastic

Zen Mountain Monastery, 12/30/2018

 

In the second of two talks on a Pali teaching about the urgency of practicing the present moment, Gokan reflects on the tendency to imagine the future, whether with excitement or dread, rather than truly dwelling where we find ourselves. He urges us to remember that our fantasies of the future are only mental fabrications – our life is happening right now.
