2018-07-21 Re-imagining our world 62:59
Brief description: How can we hold and meet the challenges of our time? Rather than falling into helplessness and despair, we can metabolize our fears and worries into energy and courage, allowing ourselves to be stirred up and to feel a sense of urgency. One specific area of practice is to see through our ways of perceiving and conceiving the world and self. Understanding the dependent and fabricated nature of all experience we can consciously and creatively play with ways of looking that contribute to peace, happiness, and harmony.

Compassion is a central mental factor that we want to cultivate on the path. It is both the sensitivity to suffering and the wholesome intention and action to alleviate suffering. Compassion frees the heart from unwholesome mindstates temporarily, is the foundation of moral conduct and supports the unfolding of wisdom.
