The Metamorphosis of Fear into Love (Larry Ward, PhD) Click here
To “light up the incense of our hearts” is to bring mindfulness into our daily life.
Every human action perfumes the world with its fragrance. Sometimes our
heart's garden is undisclosed to us, at other times it may be wilted by
the wounds of time. Buddhist psychology reminds us that when the seeds
of fear overrun our garden, suffering is created for others and
Fear can be a dangerous toxin in our lives. Not only is it the source of
our unquenchable thirst for power, and the root cause of harmful
illusions, but also it is a painful pollutant which brings sickness,
both physical and mental, to self and society.
This dharma talk looks into understanding this pollutant and practicing
with its antidote. In this way we can find relief and transformation as
we mindfully light up our hearts with the fragrances of goodness,
wisdom, beauty and love.
