Tara Brach: The Path of Homecoming

Wouldn’t life be great if we didn’t have any conflicts, disappointments, suffering, illness, or death? We often act from an unexamined belief that our life would be perfect if we could avoid everything we don’t like. Yet Dr. Tara Brach teaches that by trying to avoid our pain, we often miss what is most beautiful in life—and why it is beautiful. In this excerpt from the audio program Meditations for Emotional Healing, selected by Sounds True producer Randy Roark, Tara explores the practice of surrendering to life exactly as it is. It is in this state of presence, she says, that we can find what’s better than a life without suffering—life itself, in all of its beauty and richness, sadness and loss, filled with mystery and wonder, just the way it is.
