I love and admire the great teachings of spirituality, of wisdom traditions taught and shared by Jack Kornfield. Spiritual discipline as I understand and relate to is always an inner journey for me with an open mind and an open heart. Such journey helps me to see my inner landscape filled with suppressed and repressed thoughts, fears, longings and cravings and lots of unfinished buisness. It also opens the door for me to see the glimpses of light and real hope for peace and harmony. Meditation has helped me to look within and work on myself. The outer war is a reflection of the inner war. I need to work on discovering the causes of my inner war to find the Tao and walk on it. To me this is the main pupose of living. Like Jack Kornfield says, " This is the task for all of us. Individually and as a society." This is our dharma-to discover peace to be connected withinn ourselves and others to end the war and divisveness in us and around us.
This has been an ongoing journey for me. I always find quality time everyday from my busy life to sit by myself and go wihin with an open mind and an open heart for receiving blessings from within and sharing them with others. This creates hope in me for peace and harmony. I appeal to all to join hands with each other to walk on this path of of creating and sustaining peace and harmony.
