  2. Love is the most basic expression of who we are, and yet it is often obscured by the trance of separation and fear.

A classic form of the metta (lovingkindness) meditation is part of the talk. To watch the rest of this talk, go to tarabrach.com/video/2011-10-05-Divine-Abodes--Lovingkindness.html
