"The founder of a nonprofit has been accused of making up a story about homeless military veterans being evicted from a New York hotel to make room for migrants. Republican state assemblyman Brian Maher, who helped spread the story is now calling for an investigation saying he and others were duped by Sharon Tony Finch when pressed for details by the AP, she would only say we should have verified more. Yeah, yeah, but is that true? We should have very very good more. Before disconnecting the call, she had claimed her nonprofit was housing vets that were kicked out of an upstate hotel after New York City's mayor sent migrants there. The hotel said it was untrue. The mid Hudson news reports homeless men from a shelter claimed they were hired as part of the ruse, Mars says he spoke with Tony Finch Thursday and learned the story about homeless vets being displaced was false.

Lee Smith: Did Biden Admin Tease Bombing Nord Stream Pipeline?
"I brought up to you before as you're making a really good case here that we may be wrong giving too much credence to this Is the prior comments by the Biden administration Oh you know be a tremendous opportunity which is said after it blew up he had Victoria Nuland saying it'd be a hunk of metal at the bottom of the sea Joe Biden saying they had a plan to blow it up It reminds me of the movie basic instinct where Sharon stones the author and she writes a book how she's going to kill a dude and then the dude gets killed that way and then she says in the briefing what do you think I'm dumb enough to kill a guy the way I wrote about it Like almost almost giving herself an alibi So we may be giving too much weight to these prior comments by the Biden administration too I think so I think those comments are about something else I think as I argue in the piece in fact there was a big argument between the states department and especially our someone that we recognize from investigate Victoria Nuland who is a legitimate Russia hawk And the administration they wanted to do a big White House or other wanted to do a big favor for the Germans I think with the Biden statements I think it's that Biden is not used to being cornered by questions And so he puffed his tail like a wizard alley cast And he started talking tough So I don't think he was I don't think he was threatening to blow up the pipeline at that point Again this is all this is all in the context of I believe it's possible the United States could have done it

You know, it's interesting. I've been talking to a few people about that. I think overall, 2022 has been one of the most positive years in the last few years with the pandemic and all that's been going on. I think this has been a year that I've been able to really enjoy who I am as a creative person. I've been in part of all of those three things I've had some positive things that have happened. I've been able to get into some exhibitions, back to back, which is not always easy. I had my poetry as being was selected to be in a chat book that includes other poets in this D.C., Maryland, Virginia area. So that's going to be published soon. I've made tremendous headway in a book that I'm writing, which we can talk about later. So there's been a lot of things that have happened.

"Hard road. And I just know so many people who do love other people far more than they love themselves. But the imbalance is never helpful. When it's really vast. And I think at some point, we have to include ourselves. We can't leave ourselves at all together and expect that. It's going to be like a wholesome that is really going to be loved for that matter. It becomes a different kind of exchange. You know, it's much more transactional. It's much more frustrated. Why aren't you getting better? You know, I've decided you had to Tuesday and it's like 30 Monday, you know? And it doesn't have to be that way, but it's hard. You're asking these questions or as you're speaking, I keep thinking about the conditioning we have about how are we brought up to believe this is what a strong person looks like. This is what a kind of complete person looks like and accomplished and highly regarded. You know, what do you have to do? And then the further questions, you know, like, how alone are we really? It really is isolating is seems, you know? Life. Or are we connected in different ways? And so that's why we pay attention is to actually see those things. So the trope that you can't love other people until you love yourself. It's just demonstrably untrue, as you said, we all know people who are incredibly loving, even though they may be really hard on themselves. However, if I'm hearing you correctly, it's not helpful to be self loathing. In fact, you probably be even better at loving other people if you could have some inner okay Ness. Yeah, I'm sure that's true. And it would last longer and there would be fewer strings attached. I think it would be more like a kind of generosity of the spirit. Coming up Sharon talks about why she prefers the term basic okay Ness instead of basic goodness or Buddha nature, she'll also talk about love as an ability and a responsibility and our cultural confusion about how to define the word love.

The One You Feed
"sharon" Discussed on The One You Feed
"Do I want to bring to the world today? Yeah, it's great. You share an analogy that I don't quite remember where you heard it from, but I thought it was very entertaining and insightful, which was watch your thoughts like a very elderly person watching little kids play at the park. Yeah, that's actually a meditation instruction from Tibetan Buddhism. Which I usually use actually not even so exclusively as a meditation instruction I use it as a description of the combination of balance and compassion that I think we're looking for in action. So let's say you're really elderly person and you're sitting in a park, you're watching children play. You know, you've lived a life. That's what being elderly implies in this example. You've lived a life. You've probably had to let go of a lot of things. You've earned some wisdom through life, and there you are. You're watching these children play and you see this little kid completely freaking out because they've broken a shovel. So you're not all cold and mean. You don't go over them and say, hey, kid, it's just a shovel. You know, wait till you have a real problem. Your kind, your tender, your present, your caring. But you also don't fall down on the ground sobbing. Because, you know what? Shovels break. That's a part of life. You have perspective, you have spaciousness you have wisdom. So I talk about that combination of spaciousness and kindness. As certainly I as a person as an individual, if I were seeking help from somebody and I told them my very sad story, I wouldn't want them to say, hey, it's just a shovel. But I also would not want them to fall down on the ground sobbing that I'd really freak out. I want that sense of caring and tenderness and kindness and also spaciousness and some glimpse of something beyond the immediate situation. I find myself in. And so I think that in general is what we want as human beings when we seek help. And I think it's something I think that's something we can also remember we can offer as we offer help. People really don't get served by our falling down on the ground freaking out. But it's not coldness. It's not iciness. It's a real caring, but with perspective. Exactly. So I think I'd like to end with one of your statements again and ask you just to go into a little bit more detail about it. But it says that the difference between misery and happiness depends on what we do with our attention. I think that's true. We, you know, for example, something may arise in our minds, something uncomfortable, something distressing. One of those unpleasant visitors, and we may add so much shame and so much distress and feeling I should have been able to stop it. We meditating for more than 40 years for God and it's like, why is it still there? That we've taken an uncomfortable situation and made it a million times worse. I'm all alone. I'm isolated. I'm the only one who's ever felt it. It's a million times worse. Whereas we can also have that uncomfortable thing arise, whatever it is, that distressing visitor, and we can envelop ourselves with a sense of presence and balance and kindness. Remembering we're not all alone, that this is a part of the human condition. We can have compassion for ourselves as well as for others. And it's a whole other world, even though that same thing is arising. And so to a beautiful and wonderful and lovely thing that arise, we can be so distracted, we can hardly take them in, or we can really honor that. Look at that. That's the wolf to feed. That's a capacity I have. And so everything really depends on what we do with our attention. Well, I think that is a great place to wrap up this episode. Sharon, thank you so much for taking the time to talk with us for all the writing and work that you do. And it's a pleasure to have you. Thank you so much. All right, take care.

Who Is the Frontrunner in the Missouri Senate Race?
"I want to move to Nancy Pelosi's one 6th committee, but only after I get your assessment of the Missouri Senate race. I have been worried for months that Democrats were going to nominate along with the help of some rather innocent Republicans Eric Brighton. Now he is collapsing according to both Trafalgar and this morning Emerson looks like Eric Schmidt is going to be the nominee and what would have been a likely loss for the Republicans becomes a surefire win if Eric Schmidt is the nominee. How confident should I feel about Schmidt? Who I've endorsed being the nominee. I think you should feel pretty confident because I think there's a factor that kicks in when an election gets closer and that is the reality of a candidate actually winning gets closer and I think with grid and that is actually hurting him. And Republicans are really kind of terrified about repeating the mistakes in the Senate of 2010 O'Donnell Todd Aiken and Sharon angle mistakes. Which cost the Republicans the Senate. They had to wait till 2014 max when the Senate. So I think it's 50 50 now. They just have to get to 51. And I think they're pretty aware of that.

Indoor Mask Mandate Returns for San Diego School District
"I'm gonna start with the San Diego unified school district because I can not believe I really can not believe that they return to an indoor mask mandate in America's finest city this week. But I looked it up, it's not trolling. Originally I was sent a pointer to the school board president Sharon whitehurst Payne on a local station kui saying this, cut number 17. Indoors in school, are there any other options for them? For the fall, there are some options they can go to our school that's online. They can opt not to return to the regular school, but to go to the school where they don't have to go to school at all other than via Zoom. And that's the easiest way for folks to do this. What if they were already enrolled in the summer school and now they get this mask mandate and they're not comfortable with wearing a mask. They really should wear the mask. And it's not comfortable. What should they do? They should just let make it known that they don't feel comfortable at that point, just not return.
"sharon" Discussed on Broken Record
"Where everyone can kind of take a deep breath. I read an old time out interview that you did in 2016 and you said, I'm not a down in the dumps person. People think that I am because of the music that I write. Is that something that you feel compelled to tell people because your music is so emotional? Well, I definitely like reassuring people that I'm okay. Number one, especially my mother who at various points in my life was like, I thought you were okay. I thought we were, you know, I thought you weren't a good place. I'm like, why am, but this is my coping mechanism. This is my form of therapy, and if I didn't have music, I don't know where I'd be today. But I do have that outlet, you know? And I think that if you have an outlet, whatever it is, or being music or exercising or painting, it's like everyone needs to find their outlet to let out the side of them that is hard to communicate. And that's how I process my emotions. Yeah. So how do records usually start for you? Like, do you isolate certain sounds or feelings that you want to capture or is it more just you like noodling on an instrument or writing lyrics? How do they usually begin? Well, I tend to write and write and write and not think about the production part of it at first, and then when I have a collection of songs and I look at the entirety of what they are and what I'm talking about and what I'm going through in that moment, then I realized that I'm capturing a time period and it feels like a chapter and this particular chapter I had about 20 demos and it was COVID. Yeah. And I was going to lean in to all of the trepidation and the darkness and the doubts and the roller coaster of emotions that we were all feeling in parallel and different ways. But I wrote all the songs on different instruments so even the bare bones of the songs all started in a very different places. And I just knew that it was going to be a very emotional, a very dramatic record before I added anything to it. Do you ever do like a gut check with friends or with your partner to sort of bounce your feeling about a subject off of them to see if it's kind of like a collective feeling? Absolutely. I mean, I write from a really personal place and even before quarantine, I wanted to make sure that after I write personal songs that they feel universal in a way where anyone can connect to them on their own level. So I checked myself there before I share it with anyone else and I will say about 90% of what I write. No one's ears hear them because I always write from a personal place and it starts there without ever thinking that it's going to be for anyone else. So that's my first filter. Second filter is my partner who is also my manager. And he also used to play drums with me. So he has a musician's ear as well as thinking of all of my albums collectively and what the trajectory of my sound has been or will be or what kind of twists and turns are interesting just as a friend, but he listens to the content sometimes and asks me like where I'm going, you know? How dark how dark is this? There's even been a song on the record where he thought I was singing too low. He's like, it sounds uncomfortably low. And I was like, I want people to be uncomfortably low with me. So what other types of feedback does he give you? Like specifically when looking at the story of all of your albums together. Sometimes he'll comment on the tempo of my songs and say they could be bumped up a couple BPMs or whatever because my songs tend to be very mid tempo, I think I've honed in my mid tempo ballad for sure. And so he'll check me on trying to give some tempo to the records and not laughing at myself when a song is too lighthearted because I'm like with mistakes I thought is this one too silly to include because it's about it's about me being a bad dancer, but he thought he's like this is as we start talking about sequencing of the record and this is a point in the record where that song comes in. We actually really need that one song and it took us a long time to get there, but we did. And I found the confidence to sing something that lighthearted in the context of the weight of the whole album. I wanted to ask you about home to me, I believe it's a song about your son, but I just wanted to hear how it came to you and what you were thinking when you wrote it. Home to me is definitely about my son. I have peppered in a couple of secret messages to him for when he's old enough to know better. He's 5. And you know, he's only just starting to understand what I do. And it's interesting as he starts asking. How many movies does it take to get to the city where you're going to go? It's all the increments are all about how many movies can I watch on the way? You can watch the sandlot four times but you know, in the middle of the pandemic and writing a new record, I mean, it's very surreal to even imagine going on tour again. Yeah. I wasn't even sure if it would happen. Quite frankly, I'm scared to go back out, but I'm gonna do it because that's what I'm supposed to do, and because things are normal now, right? So they say, but you know, I'm envisioning myself being on the road and my son's starting school and I'm basically apologizing because I know how hard it is, but I feel like my job is for him to grow up watching us figure it out, watching us make it work and helping each other thrive even when it's hard. And I would not be my full self if I did not have music and my band and the fans that support it, that's so important too. That's not a little point. Right. It's so important to feel like yourself after you've had a child. It's just such a big deal and I was another thing I was thinking about when I was thinking about you going on stage after being home and being a mom and wearing the pandemic clothes and whatever it is and all of a sudden you have to step on stage with maybe makeup or you have to do your hair and have like a cool outfit. That seems like such a big transition. And like, can you even move your body in the way you want to move it? How do you get back into that mode? Let me tell you, I first of all, I got a pair of leather pants for the last tour and I was nervous to put them back on. I was like, really? Leather pants. Why did I do this to myself? Why am I going in this rock direction? Why am I trying to be Joan Jett right now? I really just, I wish I could wear a sweat pants on stage. You know, we just had our first warmup shows recently and on one hand it's nice to shake it off and I'm glad that I'm as my partner calls elevated Sharon, you know, you're still yourself. It's just like if you were going out on the town or something and it helps to get into this alter ego ish in order to disconnect from that person. Yes. Even like practice like I was practicing walking in heels again around.
"sharon" Discussed on Broken Record
"Sharon van etten on the show. The singer songwriter who pitchfork recently crowned in indie rock institution. Van etten was discovered in the early aughts after performing at open mics in Manhattan's lower east side. Her 2009 debut album because I was in love was written as a way to process surviving a violent crime and an abusive relationship in her 20s. Over the next few years, Sharon continued her journey in music releasing albums and touring internationally until on a whim around 2015, she auditioned for the Netflix show the OA. Landing a major role despite having no previous acting experience. In May, vannett and released her critically acclaimed 6th album. We've been going about this all wrong. In my opinion, it's her best. It's an album dedicated to the collective trauma amassed an elite up to the pandemic and beyond. On today's episode, broken record producer Leah rose talks to Sharon venison about some of those pandemic issues like recording her new album in her LA based home studio during lockdown while attempting to balance domestic life. Sharon also explains how her inner Jersey girl comes out on stage and why wearing leather pants and heels on stage post pandemic feels so daunting. This is broken record. Liner notes for the digital age. I'm Justin richman. Here's Lee arose with Sharon Bennett. Your new album, it's a pandemic album, but it's also a forced domesticity album. You recorded it at home. You have a studio at home, but that must have been a completely different experience on top of the pandemic on top of what was going on politically on top of wildfires on top of being a mom, a partner, how did the situation at home influence the recording? Well, you know, as a mom, you know, that you find the moments you can to make shit happen, you know? You're like, I have 30 minutes to make some magic. I'm gonna go in there. I'm gonna do the best that I can. And you set realistic goals, for yourself. And when you have to be able to ask permission when you really need to be the one that works more than the other, like today is the day I really need to be in there. I'm hitting a stride here. And, you know, my partner has pretty set hours in his day, meetings meeting Zoom Zoom Zoom. And in New York, I didn't have a dedicated studio for myself. So in that way, it was for the better. It was in my garage going through my back. In my backyard, so I was able to most of the time if I needed to go in there where I could. If I needed to put my kid on the TV in order for myself to work for an extra hour, I would, most of the time he was outside skating and on early demos, you can probably hear him in the yard. And there was a window for my studio looking out so I could see him going back and forth. And sometimes he would sit in there with me. If I was just working on lyrics and he would play the drums, and other times I could just be reading to disconnect from an emotional place that took me too far and would be hanging out in the living room just like talking and reading. They just find whatever moments of inspiration you need. Do lyrics or do melodies come to you sort of like a flash of lightning, like you have to like go in and capture it or is it something you can just sort of like work up and start with more like vowel sounds or guttural sounds and it turns into something. I mean, most of the time melodies come as soon as I sit down to something whether it be piano guitar lyrics come way later, but I tend to sit down and create a chord progression and a melody and once I get from point a and point B maybe there's a C, I don't always believe in the C but I think if I find something interesting that can at least go to those places, I'll hit record and just let myself sing stream of consciously for about ten, 15 minutes and I'll let myself wander melodically and see what it is that I find. And most of the time I just hit stop and I move on to the next thing and I don't think about that too much. And I see if I can find another melodic idea on a different instrument. Sometimes two or three of those ideas in the same day ended up ended up being married later on. Sometimes there are three different songs, sometimes it's three pieces of garbage, but on moments where I can't even play an instrument and hear a melody. I go back to those songs and I listen back and pull out words and phrases and try to remember what it was I was going through. And then I'll shape words around them on the rare occasion the words just come out like this song darkish came out in one sitting. And I just I let it live on its own. There's no verse chorus situation. I don't know what that is. But it's like one solid piece and I don't know where it came from, but it just came out of thin air. What point in the pandemic did that come? That one was the probably the only one that was fully realized before the album. But I didn't want to put it on my last record because I thought it was too apocalyptic and it was on a demo on my phone and you could hear the birds chirping through the windows. And I saved it and I put it in this folder because I thought I was just too dark. For the context of the songs and then the song kept coming up and the demos that I wanted to work on and you know I ended up rerecording that one in the studio, but the one thing I didn't want to lose was the birds because there was this point in LA when people stopped driving and the sky turned blue and so many birds started coming out and in the midst of what I thought was the end of the world nature was coming back and it gave me this moment. I don't know if you experienced the same thing, but in the midst of all this chaos and these fires and the earthquakes I heard the birds and it made me remember this demo and I thought with how intense all my other songs are, this song now feels light. Wow. And I don't want to build it up and I want this one song to live on its own without any production. And I knew that before I even built up the other songs, but I knew the other songs were going to go there, but that was the one where I just felt.

"You know, sharing, do you feel like CEOs by and large want to make a difference? Or do you think that it's just a box that they want to check off and just move on? You know, a lot of CEOs and a lot of pressure right now, right? I mean, the pandemic has changed the way we work and they're having trouble keeping employees and hiring. Like you mentioned earlier, it's really expensive to continue to hire. And what do you think? Do you feel like there's that integrity there? But yes, CEOs by and large are taking on the challenge that the buck stops with them. Not only for shareholder value, but retention, employee retention. Being a good corporate citizen, taking on causes like social justice, economic justice. They understand that the corporation is going to have to take a stand. On the issues that are happening in this nation, and in their own backyards, and many of them are prepared for it, and some of them are just still trying to make their way through it. But by and large, CEOs are really trying. They're juggling a lot. But they just going to have to make sure they have the experts and the leaderships to help them get it done. Because it really does stop with them. They are the ones with the money. They're directing the money, directing the spend, you know, on the foundation sides on the business side, you know, where the lobbyists are being paid. It is a lot going on and CEOs have to just take on the charge. And many of them are doing so. And we'll get there. You'll get there. I'm hopeful with you around. I'm even more hopeful. If we could just multiply, you share them by a thousand for someone who's watching and maybe they're saying, well, I don't know, Sharon, I only have like my company small..

I'm not going to try to convince you, retaining your top talent of color is of the thing. I'm not going to convince you that your white employees will actually think it's a good idea that we diversify inside of our organization at all levels. That's too hard of a sale for me. I would just simply leave it and say you're competition will absolutely leave you in the dust and I feel badly for your employees because you're not going to remain competitive very long. Yes. Because that's all thinking and sharing it makes me excited because I feel like as we're looking at the next generation, my kids are now Gen Z and younger, right? They actually understand the importance of diversity and embracing people that are different to them. They're being taught that their friends look different than them. And companies have a they have a really like you said, are such an amazing opportunity. But that makes me hopeful. And to think that, well, it's always been this way and therefore too much work to make it different. I think that is, in some ways, sad, because that is missing such a bright opportunity to grow your business in a very positive way. Like you said, Sharon, you've talked about the importance of relationship, right? And it all comes down to that. It's not just profit. It's not stock price. It comes down to the relationship. You have with your employees. It comes down to relationship that you have with your consumers and consumers today are so smart. So Sharon, when you think about companies creating an equitable workplace, right? Share some ideal characteristics that you're seeing. What are things that are just like you're like, wow, anything surprised you that maybe worked even better than you would expect? I work with many corporations that are working very hard to create an equitable workplace..

"Some of those learnings into your neurons with a meditation from the great Sharon salzberg may have heard me at times blather on about how I've come to embrace a broader definition of the very loaded and often cliche laden term of love, much of my spiel has been lifted directly from Sharon, who's done some incredible deep and important thinking on this subject and is one of the leading teachers when it comes to the flavor of meditation that science has shown can build up our capacity for love or you might just call it friendliness. In today's meditation, Sharon is going to show us how to apply these skills in all of our relationships, not just romantic ones. How do we surf the various vexations of dealing with other human beings without losing our crap or committing a homicide? Sharon's got your recipe. So here we go now with Sharon. Hi, this is Sharon Salisbury. This practice is inspired by the second section of my book real love. As we explore what real love can mean with our partners or children or parents or siblings, as well as friends, colleagues, and spiritual teachers, whomever. The very real question arises, like how do we love another skillfully? How do we take what might be our beautiful and pure intentions and find expression for them? How do we deal with loss with disappointment with hurt with fear? How do we stay honest enough? Present enough. To face those difficulties and transform them into a state of love for ourselves and for others. Not shall we do it one moment at a time. We do it through developing a different relationship through our own assumptions, our own fears, our own prior conclusions and learn to be more present in a state of interest, curiosity, and wonder. Because this practice is a more reflective practice, again, we're going to use the feeling of the breath as the touch point as the grounding for our awareness. That's where we'll begin, the feeling the sensations of the breath. That's what we're returned to periodically. And at any time, if you feel just confused or lost or overwhelmed. You certainly can just come back to the feeling of the breath. So let's begin. You can sit comfortably. See if your back can be straight without Begin with being aware of one breath. And the next. See if you can bring to mind a particular relationship. You can image this person. Maybe say their name to yourself. Get a feeling for their presence. See what comes to mind as you try to imagine one good thing about them. The most predominant good thing about them. Perhaps it's something you treasure every day anyway, perhaps it's something you don't think about very often. What are you grateful for about this person? Notice how that makes you feel. As you reflect on that. And bring your attention back to the feeling of the breath. And with this same person, see if you can call to mind something that's difficult for them in their lives. Source of conflict or sorrow. Maybe it's something you do think about periodically, a wave of compassion for them. Maybe it's something you try to avoid, or you tend to overlook. Whatever it might be, see if you can just sit there even if it's somewhat uncomfortable. And be present with them in this situation. Again, you can return your attention to the feeling of the breath. Once again, the same person is something you feel impatient about with them..
On Being with Krista Tippett
"sharon" Discussed on On Being with Krista Tippett
"Dot org. I'm Krista tippett and this is on being. Today we are examining love of enemies as a rational and pragmatic move. An antidote to a consuming culture of anger that is not a way most of us want to live. We are learning from the wisdom, the mind science and the long friendship between the American Buddhist teachers Sharon salzberg and scholar Robert Thurman. He was the first American to be ordained in the Tibetan Buddhist tradition by the Dalai Lama. So talking about dealing with our enemies ultimately always leads back to inner work, doesn't it? Yeah, well, there is that tremendous irony and poignancy of life that we can't look even if we do see somebody's wrong actions and malevolent speech or whatever is coming from a place of suffering, which we do believe it is. And even if we see that, even if we perceive that, the great poignancy of life is that you can't look at somebody else and say puff, you're suffering is gone, you know? You're a better person now. You know, we don't have that kind of control. We don't have that kind of dominance. And I usually say when I'm teaching, you know, I think it would likely be a better world. If I did, if any one of us did, but we don't. And so we understand that. And we do what we can. Obviously, to change conditions and be helpful, be restorative work to try to make things different, but it's not going to be in our hands. Ultimately what we can mold much more successfully although that is also not a case of puff. Now I'm better. But we can work with ourselves with our own minds and hearts. Become really actually transformed in a real way. So just how do you start at the most basic level of talking about where that work begins? Well, for me, it would begin with mindfulness. It would begin with what we were talking about earlier, just a sense of looking because we actually don't know. We know what we've been taught that maybe vengefulness is good that love is weak. Whatever it might be, the assumptions we carry the concepts and we need to take a direct look at the entire range of our emotional landscape to know for ourselves. Is vulnerability always wrong is that kind of defensiveness always right. What is the strength of anger? It does have energy, which is fantastic. It's a great attribute, but look at that brittleness. Look at that sense of tunnel vision. You know, if you think about the last time you really, really, really angry at yourself, it's probably not also a time we think, you know, I did that great thing that very same morning. I said that really stupid thing. That's gone. Our whole sense of who we are and all that we will ever be, just collapses around that stupid thing we said. And so we look at the whole nature, the flavor of the texture of all of these states and we then use the mindfulness to really work with letting go with what we feel is bringing us down and making our life smaller and more filled with suffering and enhancing and enriching those qualities that really bring us to the reality, which is that we're all connected and that we need to care about one another and ourselves. You know, it's marvelous. Marvelous. I think physically as well as emotionally. We instinctively, I can certainly speak for myself in this recoil from the reality of feeling vulnerable or afraid, right? And so we layer, I mean, anger gets layered on top of that because it feels like a more powerful response. And then we stop being able to tell the difference ourselves, right? You don't stop knowing. I'm scared, you say I'm angry. You know, Sharon, I know one thing that you've said in different ways at different times and I just found this these were words, I think, from another interview, gave as I was getting ready to talk to you again. It's one of life's big mysteries to me. You said that we don't talk to each other about the most common things like the fact that we wake up in the morning, feeling confused and scared and full of self doubt. The miracle is when someone finally names it, that's so liberating. And I mean, really, what you're talking about is being honest and it's the most frightening thing to admit that you're afraid, but what a relief. What a relief when we can do that. Oh, absolutely. It's like me as a. 15 year old or 16 year old, I guess I was maybe 16 or 17 at that point in college, at that Asian philosophy course, you know, to hear that the Buddha said right out loud. They're suffering in life. Guess what? It's not just you. It's not something to be ashamed of. It's not something to hide or sort of seek others who are suffering to be hidden from you. It's not like that. This is part of the nature of things. And if we could just be open and truthful, as you say, and admit that, then we would find one another in that vulnerability instead of feeling so cut off and so apart. Bob, what are you thinking? What am I thinking? Yeah, and you're listening to that. Do you want to add anything? What I.

And actually that thing has continues to go around the world that essay everything has eternal life And you actually confessed to. Well i wanna. I wanna read beautiful paragraph from that the way the world bruises us as we make our way through life can weigh us down clouding. Our minds can also be the concerns of everyday life the crises we anticipate and those we are experiencing in the present on top of that. There is oh at this too. There is the news blaring at us for manifold directions and in the eyes of many much of the news is bad. We all have staggered home overwhelmed by the world and slumped on the couch unable or unwilling to do anything to correct this collapse. You kind of owned in that piece that that we talk fight or flight But also there's the places. Rain goes but another posture related to those in other alternative. The brain gives us just freeze and that actually is kind of a place ugo. Yeah that's my favorite place to come on favorite place not anymore but you know you segment the hindrances and i took to bed sleepiness or sluggishness you know that would be a much stronger pattern from me much stronger habit for me then agitation say for example. You know agreed. It's not that prevalent obviously experience it. But you know. I would say if i have a primary. Go to motive avoiding. What is it would be that kind of freezing or is the same as a sort of sleepy numb out. Split of quality and So i was very happy when stress psychologists and researchers Added that. I thought oh this me you know that this much more than the others. That's interesting yeah. You know you talked about the visitors. And there's there's resonance with you know how you teach about living with these hindrances like seeing them Answering the door as he said Which is a spiritual discipline and practice because it just doesn't come naturally and yeah it doesn't and there's not only a kind of humility in it but there's such a teaching which also doesn't come naturally for many of us about being kind to yourself i think about i think a hat in california and And i was doing this program somewhere and there's a psychologist present in the room. Who's said the brain filled with shame cannot learn and i resonated with that and it's also it's so complex because here. We are in many ways. In great moral reckoning you know with issues of race and so on an inequality and injustice and how to navigate that terrain in a way. That's actually going to produce change you know and just spiraling down into like a cycle of shame. Yeah that may leave us. Inert and so intricate like really determining toured understanding and change and honesty about one's own frailties or mistakes or tendencies or whatever it might be an understanding that shame may not actually be corrective path. That kind of being mired in shame know being overwhelmed by may not be a corrective path. Yeah that's another example of it. Sounds like a moral move. And i think i think inside us. It feels like it. I mean it's it's okay. Maybe not in the right direction. But in fact it doesn't get us where we wanna go Yeah there's some place I just want to read this to you because it. So i think this is something you said in one of the in the retreat that i wrote down he said the patterns inside mir like weather patterns and that you you've come to accept that my inner world has its own inherent weather patterns as does the external world the recognition that i'm not in control and that and that gray days don't mean i've done anything wrong that all the ups and downs lights darks are part of who i am Part of who we are so just feel like that's helpful in also not attaching too much significance to every bad day Yeah and we can be so harsh with ourselves like once. I talked to a student and she was saying i should be better. I should have more equanimity. It should be calmer. I don't know why. I'm so upset. And i said well i'd really like you to write down everything that's happened to you this year. This was a long time ago. That's happened she. This year chose to draw it out instead of writing it. And as i to take a look at this your cat died. Your house burnt down here. You know you've had a hell of year. This is hard. It's hard but i think it's true what you said on every level from the most immediate and direct to the biggest biggest level. It's like We talk about equanimity in buddhism. It can sound really boring and and something like indifference. But it's not it's being able to hold everything the dark and the light and having a mind and heart big enough and spacious enough to hold it all and i recently had this experience reflecting an earlier experience. I had where i gone to parkland florida. Not too long after the shooting. Teach and Someone in the room Raise your hand and she said. I've feel really weird because i'm having an incredible experience like about mindfulness and practicing meditation and being with you and i know the only reason it's happening is because that horrible thing happened and answers. I don't have to get over that to be with this. And i said i don't know if we ever get over it so much as we learned to hold them both at once and i recently saw her When i was doing these panels and she was on panels. And and i said do you remember that conversation. We have and she said not only remember it. I think of it every single day and that we can learn to hold it all at once and she used the word equanimity. Because that's what i had used and even though it's a little bit on term for us and she talked about you know the in yang symbol where the dark is in the light and the light is also implicit in the dark. And that's really our our task is to somehow be able to hold it all in a way that.

"Of the things that i've heard you say across the years and i think have never taken it in so gratefully and it has never been so helpful before The healing is in the return. Not in not getting lost in the beginning but dances such a really fat is such liberation. I think it's powerful. Because i actually think it's true. You know like when. I started meditation like most of us. I had a different idea of success. And what it looked like in that you'd be very much about accumulation. Like if i could be with two breaths in the beginning with that my mind wandering then surely by today i should be with eight and then tomorrow should be with fifteen and then eventually my mind wandering. I found that the most unbelievable thing that that wasn't the point that learning how to let go more gracefully was the point learning how to start over with some compassion for yourself instead of judging yourself so harshly. That was the point. And it's so funny. 'cause it's like really you're like less than one on one for me and it's one in life too and it's the most precious thing i use it every day. You know. it's still the most significant thing i've ever learned from meditation and that i use it every single day because we do we have to start over and kind of do course correction or pick up if we fallen down like every day frustrating but this is true but there's something about accepting it and even accepting it as a gift That the kind of does what you also Are so clear is that we can't change Often the conditions or circumstances that are immediately in front of us but we can change our relationship to our experience of them and that that can change everything.

"Are been in conversation which sharon salzberg since this show began in the thick of pandemic isolation and racial reckoning. I invited her mull over the matter of being alive and finding meaning amidst rupture she is one of the most esteemed teachers of meditation in the world and she's credited as one of the founding three who introduced buddhist practices into mainstream western culture in the nineteen seventies. it's psychological acuity contemporary of depths and practical tools for living sharon helps far-flung people apply these in everyday life and at extreme edges of reality. She's had a sustained presents to the families of parkland florida since the school shooting there and what i have gained from her continues to resonate now as i reflect backwards and look ahead. How do we continue to walk forward and even find renewal along the way what sustains us how to hold onto a sense of what is whole and true and undamaged even in the face of loss. These questions anchored a virtual retreat. I signed up for in twenty twenty. Was sharon called shelter for the heart and mind. It was at once grounding and energizing and has accompanied me through all of the highs and lows that have followed and have yet to come. She is a master at revealing the interwovenness and the how to of caring for the world while learning kindness towards ourselves and equanimity as a.

"In today's conversation nearly twenty years later sharon i dive right in and talk about the process of capturing her life on the page for sharon. The writing of this book actually happened and the quietude of the night the kids are in bed and everybody's stevie is often all those electric waves aren't so strong and the tv. The phone's not ringing. And all that stuff is quiet. And i sit down and i just kind of wait for it to start happening and you know. Sometimes it's great. And sometimes i feel like my god sir inside out and i just do what i can do and sometimes i write two pages and sometimes i write for hours you know and sometimes most of it's good and sometimes some of it's not so great and i get like a couple of paragraphs out of it but i feel like it's that's my way i mean some people get up and they ride from like seven to three every day and i admire that. But you know that's not what happens to me. I don't have that thing. I don't have. That's not how it works for me. I have days where it's like. I needed to paint today. Like you really have to get out of my hair. Like i have to pay today you know and i wonder our paintbrush and my tastes. So you obviously have this just this huge well of creativity that that you have been mining in recent years you know with your painting with your writing short stories with your writing of this memoir and you know there's they're all very different pursued but when it came to the memoir you would you would probably expect or readers might express expect that the the person behind the memoir reached some level of self actualization or self awareness. And and. i'm i'm curious. What did you learn about yourself when you're done with this did you. Did you see your own persona and your own. You know human being with with more clarity. Oh yeah i mean. I think really. The biggest day of change was the day. I read the book for the audible book. Yeah yeah reading sitting here. Interestingly enough the director turned out to look like adopt ganger of my best friend and that was kind.
