August 2, 20219 - Amor bondadoso y compasión

Cultivemos la práctica que sustenta a todas las demás bajo una simple guía: aquietando al cuerpo, permitiendo que se relaje, que la respiración siga la quietud del cuerpo, la mente solita seguirá a la respiración y así recobraremos la calma. Atraeremos así más claridad a la mente y abriremos el corazón a su propia naturaleza noble. Podremos descubrir, desarrollar y develar cualidades innatas del corazón como el amor bondadoso, la ecuanimidad y la nobleza de reconocer nuestra interconexión con nosotros mismos, el resto de los seres que nos rodean, y aun los lejanos.
