Episode Description: As the community enters practice period, Roshi Norman Fischer encourages us to “settle ourselves beyond the personal problems and worries of our lives.” It is not that our problems are trivial, he says, but that “there is so much more going on.” Practice period is an opportunity for us to remember what our lives are really about. Though none of us wish to see ourselves as sick, “being human is a terminal condition.” Roshi Norman calls on us to embrace what it means to be human: to be moral, and to be deluded: “All my fear and confusion, loneliness and separation, is just music,” he says, “if I could only hear it.”
