How open is your heart? Dale Borglum shares the qualities of a spacious heart to cultivate compassion.
Compassion For All
Dale explores the sort of practice and awareness is needed for true compassion.
“Compassion is taught in the Eastern Traditions as compassion for the suffering of the other person. In the West though, we tend to be approaching spiritual life from a neurotic starting point. That compassion for ourselves is a very important aspect of practice. It is impossible to have compassion without previously cultivating awareness in the mind and being embodied. Present in the sense of groundedness and centeredness.” – Dale Borglum (Ram Dev)
