Justice is What Love Looks Like in Public: Celebrating Dr. King's Legacy of Love--(Retreat at Spirit Rock)
2022-01-15 Justice is What Love Looks Like in Public: Celebrating Dr. King's Legacy of Love--(Retreat at Spirit Rock) 59:25
Kaira Jewel Lingo
Given on Dr. King's birthday, we explore how we can each give rise to bodhicitta and support the realization of justice: the expression of love in public. Kaira Jewel first shares about the personal impact of Dr. King on her life, introducing her father, Al Lingo, who makes a cameo appearance to briefly share about working with Dr. King in the Civil Rights Movement in the South. She then explores the friendship between Thich Nhat Hanh and Dr. King and their common effort to build the Beloved Community. Then we look at how caring for ourselves is caring for others and vice versa, and how bodhicitta is an inexhaustible source of energy and confidence, because it helps us clarify what our ultimate concern is. We end with how we can engage in activism, and work on behalf of the world in a way that doesn’t lead to burnout.
