An Open Heart

Heart of the Lotus

Heart of the Lotus

This itself is the whole of the journey, opening your heart to that which is lovely.

Because of their feeling for the lovely, beings who are afraid of birth and death,

aging and decaying, are freed from their fear. This is the way you must train yourself:

I will become your friend and an intimate of the lovely. To do this I must closely observe

and embrace all states of mind that are good.

from: Buddha; Samyutta. Nikaya, “The Buddha Speaks” by Anne Bancroft
