Jack Kornfield – Heart Wisdom – Ep. 41 – Seeing Anew


“It is possible to step out of the blinders if you will of our ordinary perception in a fresh way, see it anew. Step out of the fear and anxiety, prejudice, and all things that bind us. Instead to see with eyes of understanding and with a beginner’s mind…”

A succinct reminder of the ever-present possibility to step out from the blinders of our ordinary perception, from the fear and anxiety of modern life, and to instead see with eyes of understanding. Through practice we begin to fully grok the necessity for and value of forgiveness, learning to let go of the expectations that inevitably compromise our capacity for compassion. The beginner’s mind is highlighted as an anchor point for helping us return to the openness, eagerness, and lack of preconceptions that embody our true nature.
