2021 Celebration/Fundraiser with Luang Por Pasanno – 5. Short Reflections by PFoD Teachers July 18 2021 079
Jessica encourages turning the mind toward the Dhamma and true awareness of how things really are, rather than how things were in the past or how we fear they are. She reminds us we are held by the Dhamma, the community, and our friends. She encourages realizing that others might not feel safe and to act with compassion by holding others where they are and creating trust.
