Jack Kornfield: Becoming a Child of Spirit
The play of sunlight through leaves . . . the songs of the wind . . . the arc of a brushstroke on paper. To be awake, reflects Jack Kornfield, is to discover the beauty hidden in all things—and to express that beauty ourselves. “The thing that resonated with me most in Jack’s new program, Turn Toward the Beautiful: Creativity as a Path of Liberation,” says Sounds True producer Randy Roark, “is the realization that the greatest impediment to our creativity is the false sense of certainty we so often seek—our desire to ‘solve’ life like it’s a problem.” In this excerpt, Jack explores how we can reclaim our childlike attitude of wonder, attuning ourselves to the beauty that often passes us by unnoticed.
