This 3- part series explores three capacities we all have, that when cultivated, bring spiritual awakening and serve the healing of our world. Drawing on an ancient teaching story from India, we explore together the power of a forgiving heart, the inner fire that expresses as courage and dedication, and the inquiry of “who am I” that reveals our deepest nature.
From the talk: “These are three qualities often described as the essence of awareness: wakeful, open, tender.”
And a blessing:
“May all beings everywhere remember and trust the loving awareness that is our source.
May all beings everywhere live in natural and great peace.
May we touch true joy in living.
May all beings everywhere awaken and be free.”
The four qualities that, when well practiced, place us in the vicinity of nibbana.
These are not new or secret teachings! We are already practicing them when we are being mindful with dedication. This can be inspiring and also bring relief at the same time.
