The Buddha's teaching on the four ways of undertaking things that clear show us how to generate more happiness and less suffering for ourselves, others and the world. Once we understand, it is possible to make choices for happiness.
This talk explores how the heart can awaken in mindful contact with the fundamental aspects of life - anicca, anatta and dukkha. To embody the awakening heart we need to understand and end the harmful force of shame and self-judgement. When there is an emerging inner climate of kind and attuned presence, the heart awakens itself.
Practice is an alchemical process that turns dukkha into sukkha. If we have the courage to face our demons and learn to open to our blessings, we radiate love and wisdom that not only transforms ourselves but the world as well.
This talk explores desire and craving; as a fuel for evolution, as the main cause of human suffering, and as the noble heart's intention and sacred wish to awaken. To fully embrace the second aspect of the eightfold path we need access to true strength and resolve.
