Chapter 2, Magic of Awareness by Anam Thubten

In Chapter 2 of The Magic of Awareness, Anam Thubten references this ancient saying as a metaphor to explain how opening one’s heart cannot be accomplished by the thinking mind. It cannot be accomplished by chasing and analyzing theories. It can only be accomplished by looking within, by destroying the ego. He says opening the heart is the most courageous expression of the human heart. Beautiful words of wisdom that inspired me this morning! I am learning that most negative feelings that I experience for other people in my own life are a result of my own ego centric thinking. By truly embracing the fact that I am enough and pausing to observe the working of my own ego I am able to solve most problems in my own life assertively, with love and compassion ❤️
