Impact (And/Over) Intent | (1/25/2022 — “Ask Us Anything – LIVE” With Denny K Miu And Lydia Grace)

For this month’s regular open-audience, open-discussion “Ask Us Anything” — continuing discussions about meditation and related topics — fellow Insight Timer teachers Lydia Grace, Denny and I explore the alignment of intent and impact.

Doing full show notes seems to take (me) a lot of time and energy so I may or may not include full notes later. I welcome any inspired listener(s) to take and send show notes for inclusion here by emailing them to integratingpresence@protonmail.com.

My notes before the show:

  • What is intent/resolve/aspiration/motivation/attitude/sammā-saṅkappa (generating thoughts with intention for progressing on the Eightfold Noble Path) and how does it work? [relinquishment/letting go, freedom from ill will, harmlessness]
  • How can one control how one impacts another?
  • *Non-Harming* training precept
  • What weakens resolve?
  • intention affects the nervous system and shapes the mind
  • More emphasis on *how*. Intent how? Impact how?
  • Request from Denny for teaching on right intent path factor
  • Our final impact is likely death of the body so what do we intend to do with this short, precious life?
  • https://dharmaseed.org/talks/56147/ Volition – Cetana by Ajahn Punnadhammo

[for previous show, Letting Our Body Talk, in reference to wholesomeness:]

“Come Kalamas. Do not go upon what has been acquired by repeated hearing; nor upon tradition; nor upon rumor; nor upon what is in a scripture; nor upon surmise; nor upon an axiom; nor upon specious reasoning; nor upon a bias towards a notion that has been pondered over; nor upon another’s seeming ability; nor upon the consideration, “The monk is our teacher.” Kalamas, when you yourselves know: “These things are good; these things are not blamable; these things are praised by the wise; undertaken and observed, these things lead to benefit and happiness,” enter on and abide in them.”

Excerpt from the Kalama Sutta – The Buddha’s Charter of Free Inquiry
