Robert Rakusan Ricci, Senior Monastic
Zen Mountain Monastery, Mt Tremper, New York, Wednesday 06/21/2023
What is it in me that wants to persist? Is that what being “me” is? Throughout our lives so much in our culture is teaching us to desire; reinforcing our desires… to continue being “me”, to have a “full life”; stayin’ alive as the song goes. Where is freedom and liberation in this? Rakusan examines this quandary. What if instead, we STOP and rest from all this activity of Stayin’ Alive?
