Facilitated by Nancy
- Settling in and guided meditation to develop awareness.
“To see the preciousness of all things, we must bring our full attention to life. Spiritual practice can bring us to this awareness [..]. As the qualities of presence and simplicity begin to permeate more and more of our life, our inner love for the earth and all beings begins to express itself and brings our path alive. [..] When we ask “Am I following a path with heart?” we discover that no one can define for us exactly what our path should be. Instead, we must allow the mystery and beauty of this question to resonate within our begin. Then somewhere within us an answer will come and understanding will arise. If we are still and listen deeply, even for a moment, we will know if we are following a path with heart. It is possible to speak with our heart directly. Most ancient cultures know this. We can actually converse with our heart as if it were a good friend. In modern life we have become so busy with our daily affairs and thoughts that we have forgotten this essential art of taking time to converse with our heart. When we ask it about our current path, we must look at the values we have chosen to live by. Where do we put our time, our strength, our creativity, our live? We must look at our life without sentimentality, exaggeration, or idealism. Does what we are choosing reflect what we most deeply value?” – A Path with Heart by Jack Kornfield.
