Contemplative Monday




"When we hold on to our opinions with aggression, no matter how valid our cause, we are simply adding more aggression to the planet, and violence and pain increase. Cultivating nonaggression is cultivating peace."

Above quote by Pema Chodron from her book 'When Things Fall Apart' .
