If we look beyond the mesmerizing glimmer of appearances, we progressively discover a world of wonder. Mind is a cognitive space that contains all the seeds of manifestation. Love is the thread that will take us out of the maze where we have wandered since the night of times. Through the eyes of love we can come to cherish others as ourselves. This progressively frees us from the obsessive-compulsive need to secure exclusively the “I” and “Mine”. The perspective of equanimity, when considering the world and worldlings, will erase the subjective borders between “me” and “you”. At this point, through the regular exercise of calm abiding and the uncovering of the basic kindness of mind, we begin to witness our own awakening; present since ever, even though unseen. More confidence will spring from this and the love will naturally be engaged as compassion.
