Love is in our nature, woven into our DNA. Love is a natural wellspring inside us all. It doesn’t need to be pushed or pumped. It needs to be released. The post Love Freely appeared first on Dr. Rick Hanson. This Wednesday Night Meditation included a 34-minute meditation, a 46-minute talk, and a discussion with John Prendergast on The Sense of Inner Knowing and R.A.I.N. John J. Prendergast, Ph.D., is the author of The Deep Heart and In Touch. He is a retired Adjunct Professor of Psychology at CIIS and a retired psychotherapist who studied with the European sage, Jean Klein, and with Adyashanti.

Generosity itself is a beautiful practice that opens and gladdens the heart, relaxes the contraction of “self,” and ripples out into the world to touch many people – and perhaps, eventually, even oneself. Additionally, many expressions of generosity are not about money. People offer attention, encouragement, and patience many times a day. Sometimes we withhold when it would be so easy, actually, to listen quietly for another minute or to offer a word of appreciation or simply a look that says, “I’m with you.” Try being a little more generous for a day and see what happens.
