Embracing Ambiguity: In What we Believe, How we Love and Who we Think we Are
“Things are not as they seem, and nor are they otherwise” – Lankavatara Sutra.
We easily get seduced by certainty – thinking we really know what we want, what we believe, and who we think we are.
Yet Dharma teachings invite us to hold experience lightly, without reducing our knowing to narrow certainty; retaining a genuinely open mind. Today’s session with Worldwide Insight Founding teacher Martin Aylward will explore how dharma practice can help us stay with this sacred ’not-knowing’. Martin will discuss how we can be both looser and freer in relating to self, other and world, and how a nuanced and flexible mind helps navigate a world where the seeming certainties of ‘right and wrong’ easily divide us from each other.
