Jack Kornfield – Ep. 31 – Loving Kindness – YouTube

“When there is love there is a kind of silence that grows, because we are not in conflict with the world. We’re actually able to be open to one another or this life as it is.”

The mysterious quality we call Love involves stepping out of the body of fear and allowing something bigger to be born in us, all the while acknowledging and loving that smaller sense of self. Though we understand it to be our true nature, we must also recognize the necessity for practice in sustaining this openhearted awareness.

Once brought to life, we learn to nourish that deeper part of our being, offering the appropriate respect and response to all of humanity.
