In this Dharma talk, Michael McAlister breaks form a bit. Instead of offering up pointers showing us a path to freedom, he describes how to best keep ourselves from ever developing an open heart.

He also discusses how ego is not the root of all evil; how focussed attention on the activity of mind offers a compassionate response to all things; and how employing a witnessing awareness to all experience reveals a deep trust in the Universe. He also suggest that there are qualities that will block both an open heart as well as an open mind, among them: fear, clinging, resentment, resistance, unresolved longing as well as grief, pain and certitude, among others.
