Talk 1 from Original Love 4 Retreat, The Fairytale is True (Video)

November 29, 2020

Awakening …  as the primary fairytale, is true.

Henry describes the various ways we have been looking at love in the Original Love retreats: loving awareness, transcendent support, deepening states of mind (samadhi), and now in this retreat, awakening. This retreat explores the ways awakening can manifest. Awakening – as the thing we most yearn for is true, as the primary fairytale – is true. The ending is happy and boundless and has always been with us. We are blocked from knowing this infinite benevolence because we are caught in the three poisons… greed, anger and delusion. The project of Zen practice is to wake up to the truth and to create a kinder, happier, world.
