we are hopeful

The mind thinks of the self as separate—the heart knows better. As Sri Nisargadatta put it, “The mind creates the abyss, and the heart crosses it.” Many sorrows arise when the thinking mind is disconnected from the heart. In meditation we can reconnect with our heart and discover an inner sense of compassion underneath all the conflicts of thought. The loving heart allows for the stories and ideas, the fantasies and fears of the mind to arise without believing in them, without having to follow them or having to fulfill them. When we listen with the heart, beneath all the busyness of thought, we discover a healing silence, a healing heart beyond the thinking mind.

~Jack Kornfield

when we are called to live our best…..

inquiry for today~ and how do we know what our best is?

dear you

Even if I knew that tomorrow

the world would still go to pieces,

I would still plant my apple tree.

~Martin Luther King, Jr.
