Our human relationships give rise to pain and pleasure, fear, suffering and love. As we bring our experience into the light of mindful awareness, we awaken compassion and discover the truth of our connectedness.
Mindfulness as bare attention is supported and developed by bringing the content of clear comprehension, or full awareness, into practice. This includes clear comprehension of purpose, of suitability, of domain of meditation, and of reality.
While Dharma practice takes courage to open to suffering, one also can bring a spirit of wonder and awe to the quality of investigation. We can open to the moment with interest, discovering reality in a fresh, new way.
