Choose your own destiny. A Talk about the Land Malcolm Margolin. Climate and the Dance of Life Paul Hawken. Donald Rothberg. At this time of climate disruption, we need powerful responses--integrating more "inner" spiritual practices and principles, on the one hand, with skill in "outer" responses, on the other. This integration or marriage can happen in many ways as we participate in the "great turning"--whether our primary emphasis, to use Joanna Macy's analysis, is stopping further damage from occurring, transforming our institutions, or helping to shift consciousness.
Without this integration, however, spiritual practice runs the risk of becoming a kind of middle-class escapism and activism runs the risk of being caught in self-righteousness, attachment to views, demonization of the "enemy," and burnout.
We need a new integration! We look at several dharma principles that can be the basis for such an integration, consider briefly how Spirit Rock is responding and might respond further to climate issues, and especially look at the figure of the bodhisattva. Active Hope Joanna Macy.

For Earth Care Week we review the three aspects of ignorance examined last week - personal or psychological , social, and universal. We focus on the social roots of ignorance with attention mostly to understanding and responding to the climate crisis.
Dharma practice and the climate Crisis At the time of Earth Day, we pose a a dilemma and challenge. Dharma practice is so compelling. The climate crisis is so compelling. Which do we choose? Both, in our own ways. We look at the ways that our practice and principles of generosity, compassion, ethics, interdependence, and wisdom call us to regard and that those responding deeply need spiritual practices and principles to meet the great need.
Continuing our exploration of ethical practice during earth care week. We examine, through the frame work of the Four Noble Truths, the question of the nature of climate change and how to respond as individuals, as communities, nationally and internationally. The Eco-Crisis as a Spiritual Crisis There are precise and profound parallels between what Buddhism says about our usual individual predicament and our collective ecological predicament today.

Cultivating a close, warm-hearted feeling for others automatically puts the mind at ease. It is the ultimate source of success in life. An entryway that is often used in our practice is of the Brahmavihara Metta or Loving-kindness. One specific type of Metta practice is opening to the suffering of someone we care about.
To start, begin by holding this person in your heart, and connect with their suffering. That they also have joy, well-being and love or whatever else might be there. But there is this aspect of suffering. I care about your suffering. May you hold this difficulty with kindness and compassion. This natural expression is caring. This is a beautiful aspect that results out of lessening our sense of self-concern or our self-involvement.
What we find through this practice in turning again and again to suffering is that we can bear it, more than we think we can.
It develops resiliency and confidence that one can be with this. We have more capacity than we think we do. This builds an enormous opening of empathy, of actually being able to feel with — when we move out of compassion.
And so we develop the capacity of self-compassion and resilience and from that foundation, just we do with the other brahmaviharas, we can then more easily open to the suffering of others. Show up. Hold their hand. The most important question as healers is not what to say or do, but how to develop enough inner space where the story can be received, how to listen with real attention.
This is such a different view of compassion in action. Creating and offering a friendly, empty space where the person can reflect on their pain and suffering without fear and find confidence and new ways right in the center of their confusion. Our compassion gives them strength or the capacity to find their healing in their experience, not taking away their experience so they can get better.
People will forget what you did.
