"A Sacred Tension" that we might experience

B. Alan Wallace, 24 May 2010

In this episode, Alan talks about something that probably bothers many of us, and he calls it “A Sacred Tension.” It is about our decision to either dedicate our time fully to contemplation, to mundane life, or somewhere in between both. This is very valuable for those of us having these types of doubts.

I stripped out the silent meditation (so you know the drill: pause, set your own 24 [or more!] minute timer, and then press play again), and left in a brief outro. I would like to say that the stats that Alan mentions are now almost double! I’ll share some stats with all of you towards the end of this podcast series.

Thank you all for tuning in =)
