Recording and Listening: a powerful tool for ending suffering

Recording and Listening is, hands down, the most powerful tool for ending suffering I’ve found. When I say this to people the reaction is often, “What about meditation?” Yes, unquestionably meditation is what will take us from Samsara to Nirvana. But Recording and Listening is what enables us to meditate in a way that will take us from Samsara to Nirvana!

When R/L was introduced to me at my first “There Is Nothing Wrong with You” retreat 11 years ago, I never listened to those recordings again. It was too painful (for egocentric karmic conditioning/self-hate).

Yet, I kept showing up for Practice — albeit only doing the Practice opportunities that were “comfortable.” I didn’t know this was what I was doing, but looking back I was saying yes to only those things that egocentric karmic conditioning/self-hate told me were “comfortable.” I did the retreats and participated as wholeheartedly as I could, but once the retreat was over the recorder (or cassette tape back then) went into a drawer never to be seen/heard of again.
