It is important to practice loving-kindness with ourself, because whatever we do not love in our own self, we will not accept in another. Buddhist teachings explain, “You can search the whole universe & not find a being more worthy of love than yourself.”

Most of our mental suffering comes from how tightly we hold our beliefs & thoughts. If we listen from the heart, we see how much trouble comes from believing stories that may not even be true.

Love is not passive acquiescence. It is a powerful force that can transform any situation. As the Buddha teaches, “Hatred never ceases through hatred. Hatred is only overcome by love.”

In every area of life we are invited to mindfully understand our conditioning and habits, and how we can live and love more. With increasing mindfulness our eyes open to our interdependence and our mutual care grows as well.

Without forgiveness we continue to perpetuate the illusion that hate can heal our pain and the pain of others. In forgiveness we let go and find relief in our heart. — Jack Kornfield ^ |

Hold your suffering tenderly—respond with compassionate action, grieve, heal what is possible. But know that suffering is not the end of the story. You are bigger than your wounds.

More than anything else, the way we experience life is created by the particular states of mind with which we meet it. Training in mindfulness, we learn to be aware of our own mental states without being caught in them.

True peace comes with the discovery that we can respect the seasons of life with a spacious heart. In it we learn to trust, to rest in the truth of the way things are, to willingly accept our measure of joy and sorrow.

Imperfections are part of the display of life. Joy and sorrow, birth and death are the dance of existence throughout which our awakened consciousness can shine. The point is not to perfect yourself. It is to perfect your love.
