Wise heart

by Jack Kornfield

Next year I am embarking on the 2 year Mindfulness meditation teacher training with Tara Brach and Jack Kornfield as leading teachers. My journey is filled with the theme of Balance and have been very curious to see how Love as one wing and Wisdom in the other can gently evolve in my Life.

In coaching we often work with dreams and visions. More and more for me has become important to tap into my own wisdom and heart if the dream is “forced” or it is gently emerging from my heart, did I create it from some sort of Should and because putting down a vision board is a thing to do, or because it brought me Joy.

Jack Kornfield’s book The wise heart is full of guidelines how to stay present in compassion with what is.

Here are some of my favorite parts from Wise Heart by Jack Kornfield

“The mystic Simone Weil tells us, “The danger is not that the soul should doubt whether there is any bread, but that, by a lie, it should persuade it self that it is not hungry.” Compassion reminds us that we do belong, as surely as we have been lost.”

“Zen master Shunryu Suzuki remarked to a disciple, “You are perfect just the way you are. And … there is still room for improvement!”

“reclaiming of compassion and self-love. From this comes a shift of identity, a release from the covering of clay, a return to our original goodness.”

“nobility is defined as human excellence, as that which is illustrious, admirable, lofty, and distinguished, in values, conduct, and bearing.”

“set the clear intention that during the morning you will look for the inner nobility”
