  Tara Brach
The more we trust that our awareness and heart are awakening, the more we find ease, grace and true empowerment in our lives. This talk explores two pathways of deepening our sense of belonging and trust: direct presence with the pain of separation, and turning toward the loving presence that is increasingly manifesting through these human forms. ” … we need people who are able to respond from the heart – not from an angry or egoic reactivity, but from real wisdom.”

  Tara Brach
By connecting with your future self, this reflection guides you in accessing the deep wisdom and unconditional love of your own awakening heart. “I returned to the river. I returned to the mountains. I begged – I begged to wed every object and creature. And when they accepted, God was ever present in my arms. And He did not say, ‘Where have you been?’ For then I knew my soul – every soul – has always held him.” Excerpt from: When I Was the Forest – Meister Eckhart NOTE: this reflection from the closing of Tara’s talk: Trusting Our Awakening Heart
