Follow-up from the previous episode of why I feel like my meditation experience is better when my timer is inaccessible to look at and how my relationship to boredom has changed. I then discuss the author’s preface and chapter one of The Other Shore by Thich Nhat Hahn on interbeing and the meaning of emptiness.
Be a light unto yourself; betake yourselves to no external refuge. Hold fast to the Truth. Look not for refuge to anyone besides yourselves.
― Buddha Shakyamuni
