Contemplative Monday

To continue from last Monday about Blame and Justification, which I call the 'blame game', Pema Chodron suggests we keep this in mind:

     " Seeing when you justify yourself and when you blame others is not a reason to criticize

                         yourself, but actually an opportunity to recognize what all people do

        and how it imprisons us in a very limited perspective of this world. It's a chance to see

        that you are holding on to your interpretation of reality; it allows you to reflect that that's 

                    all it is----nothing more, nothing less; just your interpretation of reality."
