Peace comes when our hearts are open like the sky,
vast as the ocean.

Feelings are ever-present. They are a mysterious and rich dimension of our human life. But without mindfulness of them we can react automatically, habitually clinging to the pleasant feelings, avoiding the unpleasant ones, and remaining unaware of what is neutral.
In this dharma talk from 1977, we explore working with wisdom, power, and knowledge on your spiritual path, and why it’s so important to walk the Middle Way.
Walking meditation is another way to develop calm, connectedness, and embodied awareness. It can be practiced regularly, before or after sitting meditation, or any time on its own, such as after a busy day at work or on a lazy Sunday morning.
