Trusting the Gold

Why recognizing our human goodness may be the most radical act we can take.

We receive so many messages from our culture meant to divide us from each other or turn us against ourselves. Yet when we stop judging, stop avoiding, stop resisting that which makes us afraid or ashamed, we open to our true essence—and find beauty, wonder, and love.

“The gold of our true nature can never be tarnished. When we remember this basic goodness of our Being, we open to happiness, peace, and freedom.”

—Tara Brach
