    Question please for anyone

    Hi,  I have listed somewhere from Integral talks 10 things to practice:

    1. Genorosity

    2. Ethics

    3. Patience

    4.Heroic Effort

    5. MIndfulness

    6.Wisdom

    7.Skillful Means

    8.Spiritual Aspirations

    9.HIgher Accomplishments

    10. Awakened Awareness

    Does anyone know if you are supposed to practice them in order or all at once?

    Also, I have been going down the list one at a time, and am at number 4 which is Heroic Effort.  Can anyone tell me what that means, and maybe give an example?

    Thanks, lizzie

    Hi Lizzie,

     

    You can read all about those 10 practices in the book by Lama Surya Das called, "Buddha is as Buddha Does: The Ten Original Practices for Enlightened Living."

    Heroic Effort is simply giving your best effort in each moment given what you know at the time.  Therefore, I would imagine that using your heart as your guide would be very key; which simply means take all the information that you have available and make a decision knowing that we are all imperfect and thus our desired results will most likely be imperfect.  If you can accept having imperfect results from imperfect actions, but yet you continue to make decisions based on your heart; then you are making the heroic effort.  Of course in giving your best effort it is useful not to lose the forest from all those trees!  Remember to dance and be merry.


    :) MUCH LOVE (:
