Seeing the world through the eyes of the heart, you experience your true nature. This guided meditation is a journey into the depth of your consciousness, allowing you to feel relaxed, open and aware. It was inspired by Geshe Michael Roach.
We can only hear a sound or silence because of our awareness. As the sound passes, the knowing of it remains. The nature of awareness is distinct from its sensory and mental contents. Happiness is inseparable from understanding of consciousness.
This meditation contains sounds of a heartbeat.
Connecting our breath with our heartbeat has a deeply calming effect on body and mind. We synchronise the rhythm of five beats with our inhalation and exhalation. We feel compassion for ourselves and with the world.
We experience fear as worry or doubt. On the basis of peace, clarity and compassion we can transform it into courageous actions. Courage is the key to enjoying life.
Our true nature is love. However, usually at an early age, some thing happened that caused us to feel inadequate and lonely. Naming and judging separated us from the truth of who we are, making us feel fearful. By surrendering, we can understand that we are the love we are looking for.
Compassion is a quality of the heart. This loving quality remains with us, regardless of what we do. By embracing ourselves and all other beings, we cultivate compassion and loving kindness. By sharing our compassion, we feel balanced and strengthened.
