Letting Go of Our Search for Absolute Safety

This talk was given in the weekly online Dharma practice gathering on May 15, 2020.  Rebecca drew on Pema Chodron’s quote “To seek for some lasting security is futile” to examine how our entrenched habits to search for absolute safety is suffering.  She explained how to cultivate awareness of these habits.  Through practice, we learn to let go of the urge to grasp for absolute safety, hence allowing us to clearly discern the constantly changing situation of the pandemic to identify appropriate actions and not be stuck in fear.
