2020-10-27 Confidence, Uncertainty and the Five Aggregates 46:00
In times of uncertainty we tend to reinforce those things that lend themselves to feeling safe and familiar, usually by reaffirming a sense of self that says, “This is right; this is who I am; this is how things should be.” The way we do this is described in Buddhism with the five aggregates, the ways we experience, perceive, and interpret reality. We will discuss understanding and seeing clearly these ways of experience and how awareness of them may lead to freedom from suffering.
