0050 Suffering, The 4 Winds, and Boundaries

This podcast discusses the harm done by getting caught up in the 4 dichotomies that change with the wind. These cause the suffering referenced in the 1st Noble Truth. The dichotomies are:

  • Pleasure/sorrow
  • Gain/loss
  • Fame/lack of recognition
  • Praise/blame

These are expanded to include the drawing of any boundary with “good”/“bad” on one side or the other. Buddha showed that the lack of boundaries such as these is what allows us to be present in the world and decide accordingly what to do.
