“To live a purposeful life, you want to examine assumptions and think about what you stand for.” ~ Linda Fane
Today’s conversation is with Buddhist teacher, Linda Fane.
This is one of those episodes where you’re going to want to grab a pen and paper and sit down to take notes.
Today’s conversation is with recurring guest, Linda Fane. If you haven’t already listened to previous episodes with her, go back and check out episode 5 and episode 39. And I guarantee you’ll be in for a treat because this is like having your own private dharma teaching, life lessons and positive outlook all rolled into one.
In this episode, we focused on belief, mainly in the sense of us being able to conjure up an idea or a goal and then be able to make that happen. And as a Buddhist teacher, of course, Linda brings with it this Buddhist perspective, specifically that the mind is the means to the end and that everything has been and will be created in the future because of our mind. Everything we know as true (or perceive to be true) is because of our mind.
But, as we discuss, you can’t get somewhere (or feel something, like happiness) simply because you believe it. You have to put forth effort as well.
So we explore that. We explore what it means to have a belief and the importance of knowing ourselves well enough that we’re then not being swayed by other people or that we buy into their beliefs simply because they say something enough times or they say it loudly enough.
In addition to belief, we also talk about being honest, we talk about social media and how we’re prone to only posting positive things even when we may be hurting, we talk politics without really talking about politics and we finish up with enlightenment.
With that, please enjoy this conversation with Buddhist teacher, Linda Fane.
