“We have to live our way to wisdom…The world offers us so much, but it’s something we live our way into. We live our own stories, our own challenges.” – Tracy Cochran

In this episode, Tracy and Raghu chat about:
  • Living our way to wisdom
  • The knowledge that the world offers us
  • Ram Dass and Fierce Grace
  • Tracy’s experience being attacked
  • Being seen with eyes of love and compassion
  • The power of forgiveness
  • Heartfulness and living within the truest parts of ourselves
  • Courage and the willingness to be open

“The madness is often thinking that we are just that wounded part that keeps us from being in the room, so to speak. Sometimes, the presence of someone who really see’s with eyes of compassion and love, we experience ‘oh, I’m really, really acceptable, and lovable, and fully welcome here.’ It’s like the sun coming out.” – Tracy Cochran
