Contemplative Monday

"Rather than going after our walls and barriers with a sledgehammer, we pay attention to them.

"With gentleness and honesty, we move closer to those walls.

"We touch them and smell them and get to know them well.

"We begin a process of acknowledging our aversions and our cravings.

"We become familiar with the strategies and beliefs we use to build the walls:

"What are the stories I tell myself?

"What repels me and what attracts me?

"We start to get curious about what's going on."

The above taken from: Heart Advice----Weekly quotes from Pema Chodron.
