Words of Wisdom for March 27, 2024

Dear Friends:
” Zen teacher Ezra Bayda describes the problems that can come from being a compulsive “helper.” While we all want to be helpful, we can’t neglct our own needs, nor should we help others in search of praise.
One of the themes of practice is the gradual movement from a self-centered life to a more life-centered one. But what about our efforts to become more life-centered-doing good deeds, serving others, dedicating our efforts to good causes? There’s nothing wrong with making these efforts, but they won’t necessarily lead us to a less self-oriented life. Why? Because we can do these things without really dealing with our “self.” Often our efforts, even for a good cause, are made in the service of our desires for comfort, security, and appreciation. “
