The Heart Sutra: the Fullness of Emptiness (Thich Nhat Hanh)

Emptiness is not something to be afraid of, says Thich Nhat Hanh. The Heart Sutra teaches us that form may be empty of self but it’s full of everything else.

Reactions to Life Events

The following is from Madisyn Taylor of Daily Om where she shares how our own personal reactions to things that occur during our lives are actually pre-conditioned - however, each of us have the ability to "re-wire" this pre-conditioning should we truly desire to do so.
