People say the world is going to hell in a hand-basket, but that’s only half the story. There is a lot of suffering that really needs our honest compassion and tending, but it also needs hope. If you go into a refugee camp and you’re depressed and worried; they don’t need that, they already have plenty of that. They need somebody that comes in and says, ‘We human beings can make the world better.” – Jack Kornfield

In this episode, Jack and Prince Ea steam in:
  • Meeting all facets of the world with optimism and hope
  • Why we should never underestimate the human heart
  • Mindful presence, loving awareness, and waking up to who we are
  • Overcoming fear and not buying into the scare tactics used in politics
  • What it was like for Jack to meet and learn from Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj
  • The story of Jack becoming a Buddhism monk and finding Vipassana meditation
  • Unpacking compassion as a verb, rather than empathy which is inactive
