9. The Loveliness of the Ordinary
Teaching Awareness in the Buddhist Tradition - Essays in Honour of Professor Corrado Pensa - Chiara Neri
Christina Feldman [+]
The short essay, also accompanied by a guided meditation (‘Touching the Ordinary’), offers a reflection on the importance of appreciating the ordinary life through the awakening of awareness. The renunciation of haste can become a way to appreciate life and to access a deep attention that can illuminate what is buried in the heart. Awareness is what helps us understand and appreciate the miracle of being alive.
