Waking up is a good thing– but it’s not everything. It’s only a beginning. Waking up is just an encouragement along the path. Just an encouragement. But what we really need to do, what our work is, is to live a life that is aligned with the deepest truth of our nature. That is really our work. Before or after you wake up is exactly the same thing.
Our audio dharma talks are offered free of charge and made possible by the donations we receive. If you would like to support Brooklyn Zen Center, please visit the “Giving” section of our website.
