Connect with Essence Love

by childless stepparent


“Every time you connect, a little bit more clarity stays around the love, a little bit more space opens up around it. Your mind becomes clearer. You experience expanded possibilities. You become a little more confident, a little more willing to connect with others, a little more willing to open up to other people, whether that means talking about your own stuff or listen to theirs. And as that happens a little miracle occurs: You’re giving, without expectation in return. Your very being becomes, consciously or not, an inspiration to others.” 

~ Tsoknyi Rinpoche | Open Heart, Open Mind: Awakening the Power of Essence Love

As a reincarnate lama who is also a husband and father, Tsoknyi Rinpoche brings a unique understanding of dharma and how we can practice these profound teachings in our day-to-day life. I’m reflecting on “essence love” today, one of Rinpoche’s core teachings.

Making time to connect with with our spiritual life is essential for childless stepparents.

Step back. Breathe. Let go.
