    "Stay connected to the best of these seeds. Take a moment to reflect: What is your highest intention—in your love relationship, in raising children, in doing your work? Your intention is part of the seed. Come back to it again and again to water it. What is your intention for this world?" – Jack Kornfield

    Ep. 146 – Setting an Intention of the Heart

    Ep. 146 – Setting an Intention of the Heart

    Jack Kornfield inspires us with a dialogue on stillness, suffering, and how we can set intentions to help others.

    “We stop and try to sit quietly and it's like there is a layer of ice that needs to thaw before the water can even move inside.” 

    Each year we watch birds come and go; we see stillness and then movement. Sometimes, we forget that humans too are a part of nature. Jack reads us a poem by Pablo Neruda about being still and making each moment exotic. The poem is an invitation to quiet the mind, be present, and live from our hearts. Jack empathizes with how difficult it can be to relish in the stillness of life.
