Dear Folks -
This is one of those times when I believe the audio version of the talk I gave in Ordinary Life is better than the printed text that follows.
In summary what I hoped to convey is that we are already adequate. We are inherently compassionate and wise. They are blocks to our realizing this and I list and amplify what some of these roadblocks are in this talk. They include being judgmental, not being present and now practicing awareness.
The full text I used for this talk is below. There is more content on the audio version.
