When awakening happens, the mind’s need to understand disappears into the unconditional love and acceptance of the Heart. - Tom Thompson

There is no doubt that regular meditation develops a sane perspective. It is more clearly seen that we are all on this bus together, interconnected and interdependent, and if we are going to survive and thrive we need to learn to take care of each other.

Out of this basic sanity arises a deep wisdom and love that expresses through skillful and compassionate action. This is not a belief but a truth that has been scientifically validated many times.

Most people are deeply engaged in the on-going drama of their ‘me’ mind and never stop long enough to question whether any of what they are thinking and believing is actually true. This questioning is an act of existential courage that ultimately brings down the imaginary walls that separate us. This is true freedom.
