Tara Brach's Dharma Talks at Insight Meditation Society - Retreat Center

A pervasive but often invisible source of suffering in our culture is self-aversion. We are a busy culture, and we move through our life feeling anxious and dissatisfied, but not fully conscious of how we neglect or judge our inner experience. We suffer from a lack of belonging: to our own bodies, to each other and to the earth. When we practice Buddhist meditation, we learn how to listen deeply and hold our life tenderly.

the Buddha described the path of liberation in terms of a bird with two wings--the wing of understanding and that of compassion. what the mind recognizes as truth, the heart experiences as love. it is in the awakening of heart/mind that we experience freedom and discover our Buddha nature.
