A pervasive but often invisible source of suffering in our culture is self-aversion. We are a busy culture, and we move through our life feeling anxious and dissatisfied, but not fully conscious of how we neglect or judge our inner experience. We suffer from a lack of belonging: to our own bodies, to each other and to the earth. When we practice Buddhist meditation, we learn how to listen deeply and hold our life tenderly.
1996-12-31 The Jewel In The Lotus: Cultivating The Awakened Heart 52:01
the Buddha described the path of liberation in terms of a bird with two wings--the wing of understanding and that of compassion. what the mind recognizes as truth, the heart experiences as love. it is in the awakening of heart/mind that we experience freedom and discover our Buddha nature.
