and not just the mind. fear, hatred, and suspicion also close up our heart.

there are antidotes to these poisons. awareness transforms ignorance and delusion, which pulls the rug out under fear. with fear removed, we also become free of suspicion. when we practice meditation we allow space for awareness to arise. when we practice lovingkindness, we are opening our heart and allowing for empathy and our natural capacity to love to arise. empathy and love put into action, is compassion. in such space, with awareness and open-heartedness, there is no room for hate.



if you’d like to practice meditation with me, i offer Self-Care Saturdays at 10am PST, where we practice mindfulness awareness and lovingkindness meditation. the sessions are free or by donation. $10 suggested. link:
