|Enlightenment: "Are we there yet?" (Sipress)|
"Sense of urgency" (samvega) and "calm" (pasada) keep our practice alive and on course. The first is a spiritual sense of urgency arising with regard to three things:
- a sense of disillusionment and dispassion about life as it was usually lived,
- our own complacency and complicity,
- and a determination to find a more meaningful way to live.
