Dear Friends,
 
Today, we share with you a deep and lovely talk given by Thich Phuoc Tinh, the monk referred to at Deer Park Monastery as The Venerable.  Here, the Venerable speaks directly about how time can pass quickly if we rush our minds and bodies, pushed by strong habits to be constantly occupied. He encourages us to stop, sit, and enjoy our own inner peace.  He uses the poignant analogy of words written on a whiteboard to illustrate no birth and no death.  We are the whiteboard and the words that we think define who we are --  are merely temporary.  When we see that the words are not the essence of the whiteboard, no one can cause us to suffer
 
Remember, you can always find the Deer Park Dharmacast at dpcast.net, Facebook, iTunes, and Twitter.  Now, enjoy this moment to stop and look deeply
