This Sunday Mike B. led our Sangha discussion and played a talk and guided meditation by Pascal Auclair. The topic was on the changing nature of the self, experience, and memory. A feeling, thought, or self-image can seem so real and permanent in the moment, but then the next moment (or many moments later) it reveals itself to have been nothing at all. We explored the Buddha’s metaphor of experience as the foam of bubbles in a stream and how it was reflected in our own lives.
