In this installment of Commuter Zen, Michael answers questions from listeners dealing with different aspects of desire and curiosity. Questions deal with the desire for a better work environment as well as intimate relationships; desire for Big Enlightenment; curiosity about how to best establish a sitting practice; curiosity about the practice of chanting; desire for recognizing how the Universe provides us with everything we need for Awakening; and how we can truly silence the mind. We end this installment with a brief pointing out instruction that leads us to the No Mind realization of the present moment. Other topics include the Nirmanakaya, the Sambhogakaya, and the Dharmakaya, as well as the corresponding gross, subtle, and causal levels of spiritual realization.
