Hope you’re enjoying our new book – Happiness is an Inside Job, by Sylvia Boorstein. Please read up to the end of the chapter entitled “We understand and we feel: warm wisdom.” That’s up to page 40 in the softcover edition.
Please listen to this talk entitled “Feeding the Wolf of Love; Restraining the Wolf of Hate” by Rick Hanson available free through dharmaseed.
For Monday, please read the introduction of Happiness is an Inside Job. In the softcover addition, that’s page 5-21.
There’s a growing tension between mindfulness as self-help and mindfulness as a mental faculty that helps us awaken. We must be careful to remember the privilege we have and stay engaged with making the world a more just and happy place.
Friends: Please take some time to listen to this talk for next week. The topic is working with strong emotions. Hope it’s helpful and stimulates discussion!
