Cultivating a Compassionate Mind: Step 4April 10, 2023 | 6 Comments
Audio-only version is here.
Meditation practice begins at 18:06.
Dear Open Heart Project,
Welcome to the final video in this series on Cultivating a Compassionate Mind.
Week 1: Affection for the World
Week 2: Faith in the Right Situations
Week 3: Compassion for Sentient Beings
Now we come to Bravery, the fourth quality. In this view, bravery begins with developing some tolerance for your own discomfort. If we are unable to do so (or simply chose not to), we ignore our own pain and the pain of others and may choose to hide from those who need us.
Please have a listen to this short talk for more ideas about bravery and compassion in general. I always love to hear your thoughts! Please let me hear any questions or reflections.

Loved this! Both the recap, and the explanation of bravery.
Thank you Susan. It s always good to have these reminders of what being compassionate and brave is, and why sangha is important.
I need to make more of an effort again in that department, without feeling overwhelmed by energy sucking sentient beings.
I also see the importance of connection and of being human together.
Please explain still why you laughed at the ‘brave hero’! (or did I miss it?)
Sending much love from the hood ⚓️
