2020-05-16 Heart of Possibilities - Talk 44:28
  Nathan Glyde
Awakening the heart from limitation also opens us to a sense of boundlessness. What is it to see the Dharma as an exploration of release through lessening our built up and heavily fabricated experiences? How would it be to see this path as a way to fabricate less and less dukkha–distress and self-centredness, and to liberate all appearances?
