Cultivating "True Love" with the Seven Factors of Awakening
Tampa | September 28 & October 5, 2014
As part of a series of talks on the Seven Factors of Awakening, Fred paused for two weeks to discuss how, when developing all factors, we want to simultaneously cultivate "true love" in the Buddhist sense, which includes loving kindness, compassion, joy in the joy of others, and equality of love for all beings. The more we lead an awakened life, the more our egocentricity diminishes and the more we notice the interconnection of all life. True love will naturally arise, and we will move beyond indifference to empathy, and beyond empathy to action.
