Extra resources for 1974 Seminary Hinayana-Mahayana
A lot of the emotional uptightness comes from wanting to stick to one's own identity and to one's own importance. Usually you want to be somebody or something important. You want to achieve something, so therefore you express yourself in terms of anger, passion, jealousy, envy or whatever. The fourth aggregate is not having enough faith. In this case, when we talk about faith we are talking about faith in the sense of having faith in yourself, that you actually can do it. You can do it. You don't have to have too much help to do it, but you can do it yourself.
So then you can relate with trenpa. Because you can't borrow somebody else's flashlight, you have to dig one out of your own pocket and use it. Q: Could you say that sheshin is something that functions in the environment of trenpa? R: Y ~s, precisely. Q: Just to follow up on that question-you define loneliness as depending upon your own resources, but often these resources will be things which tend to be suspect, because it seems like they're trying to ignore your loneliness. No matter how much I depend upon my own resources, it seems to me that there still is a certain consolation and sheer pleasure in being with people.
But in this case it is possible, highly possible. Q: The way loneliness relates to trenpa is somewhat clear, because if we're feeling alone there isn't anything to distract us, so we don't have to go anywhere, which is some kind of one-pointedness. But sheshin seems to be some kind of cognitive function, some kind of knowing, and I'm not quite as clear about the relationship between loneliness and that. R: Loneliness doesn't mean ignorance, but it means being without any other help but your own resources.
