The Inclusive Heart

Teacher: Rodney Smith

Venue: Seattle Insight Meditation Center



Work with the contradiction between exposing yourself to more inclusive option and taking risks with its apparent opposite of setting personal boundaries and “saying no.” How do you reconcile the two? Is the wanting to open based upon the ideal of a perfected spiritual state or upon seeing and understanding the self-imposed limit is no longer useful and the willingness to move beyond. You do not eliminate boundaries through “shoulds” or “musts” but by directly perceiving that their limitation is greater than their protection. Examine where you have imposed limits and, without self-judgment, feel the limitation and the protection offered. Ask yourself what you are trying to protect and see if it is still needed.
