The Enlightenment teachings of Leonard Jacobson
Leonard Jacobson begins this talk by speaking about the truth, which becomes available to us as we settle fully into the present moment.
By Ciel Patenaude: Of all the areas of our lives that stress and exhaustion affect, sex drive has got to be the most frustrating.
by Lama Surya Das: Many people have been asking me of late if Steve Jobs really was a Buddhist. The answer is yes, and for many years.
by Eckhart Tolle: There’s a particular dimension where creativity arises. It’s a little bit like the wick burning the flame, and its sustenance is the oil – it’s in an oil lamp, and you are the flame.
How do you respond when negative emotions show up in your life? Do you wind up adding even more negativity to the already-not-so-great feelings?
by Laura Berman: I don’t know about you, but when I was in grade school, you answered your teacher’s ubiquitous roll call with “present.” As I got older, we were allowed to say “here” to confirm our presence in the room. Now, no one asks us anymore, but maybe they should.
by Nadia Webb: A new study suggests that your brain reacts the same way to meditation as it does to sex. Both dissolve our sense of self-awareness, separating ourselves from our ego. Sex in the brain, and what it reveals about the neuroscience of deep pleasure.
by Llewellyn Vaughan-Lee: “God does not look at your outer forms, but at the love within your love.” –Rumi
