Jack Kornfield – Heart Wisdom – Episode 04 – Mystery & Compassion

Play

Jack discusses the fundamental mystery that is our human incarnation, and the methods we can utilize to stay close to that immense presence. Meditation isn’t necessarily about having a mystical experience, but about coming back into the natural mysterious experience of being alive. Within all of us there is a divine seed of consciousness, much greater than the functional matter that we occupy. In meditation, we are invited to return to this sacred space.

    Good stuff about meditation. I was put off meditation for a long time by my misconception that it meant acquiring some arcane technique from an old oriental bearded master at the end of a treacherous mountain trek, and using it to conjure up a state of Jedi incantation.
    I don’t know where the hell I got such a ridiculous idea, but it’s a relief to discover that it’s a much simpler proposition, even if my mind still tries to get out of it like a child trying to escape going to the dentist.
