6. Guided Sympathetic Joy (Mudita) Meditation
Guided Sympathetic Joy (Mudita) Meditation
Is it possible that the amount of love, happiness and success available to worldly beings is not finite? How would it feel to rejoice in the happiness of our fellow humans? A guided meditation on sympathetic joy (mudita) with Buddhist teacher Joseph Goldstein. "Sympathetic joy is the ability to feel joy in the happiness of others. Its near enemy is a sense of comparison -- concluding that our experience makes us superior, inferior, or equal to someone else. This is the force of assessing ourselves in relation to someone else's experience. We separate ourselves and in our separateness measure, evaluate, and affirm ourselves in relation to someone else's life. Comparison itself, regardless of the conclusion we draw, is a source of pain and delusion in the mind. When we touch the spirit of sympathetic joy in our heart, it connects us with the happiness of all life. Sympathetic joy embraces all those enjoying happiness themselves and brings us together with them. Their well-being is our own." - Jack Kornfield
7. Big Mind Meditation
Big Mind Meditation
A guided "big mind" meditation with Buddhist teacher Joseph Goldstein. In spiritual practice, time is not a factor. Practice cannot be measured in time, so let go of the whole notion of when and how long. The practice is a process unfolding, and it unfolds in its own time. It is like the flowers that grow in the spring. Do you pull them up to make them grow faster? I once tried to do that with carrots in my first garden when I was eight years old. It does not work.
