"Drinking the Wine but Being Clueless: The Plague of Insufficiency" is a dharma talk by Roshi Joan Halifax. â€œThereâ€™s something wonderful about getting lost,â€ Roshi begins. â€œIf youâ€™re not lost, you think you know where youâ€™re going.â€ In the course of this heartfelt talk, Roshi discusses the importance of gratitude as well as appreciating the truth of suffering in life. Using classical Zen stories, she explores the virtue of poverty, of approaching life â€œon one hand grateful, and on anotherâ€¦ mindful.â€ â€œIf you have gratitude then youâ€™re never not wealthy,â€ she says. This talk was recorded at Upaya Zen Center, in Santa Fe, NM, on May 16, 2007.
