Adhitthana

Stare down the suffering, Dove says.

Soul self determination, the auspiciousONE says.

Adhitthana, the healingONE says.

Making a strong resolution or determination. A vow to one’s self.

Our compassion is bigger than our suffering.

To commit to watching how the mind brings us to suffering. To commit to concentrate and be at-one with the moment when thoughts that lead to actions that lead to suffering arise. To fearlessly stare down and “gently hold” the suffering as it arises and wants to be known. To cut off the ways of being that binds me to this way of life.

Adhitthana!

One of the paramitas.
May all Beings find happiness and the causes of true happiness!
