2021-02-08 Seeing the World with the Heart of Wisdom | Monday Night talk 51:25
Jack Kornfield
We have the capacity to be awake and to see the world as it is with a graciousness and an understanding. As the poet Mary Oliver writes, "To live in this world, you must be able to do three things: to love what is mortal; to hold it against your bones knowing your own life depends on it; and, when the time comes to let it go, to let it go." This is our dance, our human incarnation: to tend and love that which is ephemeral.

2021-02-08 Meditation: Loving Awareness | Monday Night 26:47
Jack Kornfield
The freedom of loving awareness is available; it just takes practice for you to remember it, and to trust that it is always here. When you feel lost, stuck in a tiny part of the big picture, contracted, or caught up, take a breath and visualize yourself stepping back. With a spacious mind, you can witness even these contracted states and hold them in loving awareness.

2021-01-25 Reconciliation | Monday Night talk 53:22
Jack Kornfield
Conflict is natural—we can be attached to our needs, desires, ideas and visions. Our brains are wired with a negativity bias to look for things that are threatening. But some other part of us knows there is another way. We need to pause and reflect for a moment. What is it that matters most? This vision is needed more than ever in the midst of our difficulties.

2021-01-25 Meditation: Reconciliation | Monday Night 31:32
Jack Kornfield
This meditation is a deep-hearted reflection, a possibility, a yearning, a vision. Even if we cannot or should not speak to the other, we can find the courage to hold reconciliation and goodwill in our own heart.To recite the intention of reconciliation is to willingly plant a seed of reconnection and love in our heart. As we repeat each phrase, we turn our intention to the possibility of restoring harmony where suffering has set us apart. May our lives lead to wise, healthy, and courageous reconciliation.
