In today’s teaching, Reggie shows how the fundamental truth of the universe is discovered within the human heart. To trust in the heart means being willing to open to what we are feeling and explore the immediacy of life, no matter what we might think about it. This takes courage because it demands vulnerability and an unreasonable commitment to love the full breadth of our experience without judgment. He says that when we surrender our ideas about who we think we are and what we think our life should be, then we can begin to see that our heart is a jewel in Indra’s net: it reflects the full scope of the universe in its absolute splendor and beauty, and it shows us how we are interconnected with all beings throughout time and space.
