Contemplative Monday


"If we begin to surrender to ourselves-----

begin to drop the story line and experience what all this

messy stuff behind the story line feels like-----

we begin to find bodhichitta,

the tenderness that's beneath all the harshness.

By being kind to ourselves, we become kind to others.

By being kind to others----if it's done properly, with proper understanding----

we benefit as well.

So the first point is that we are completely interrelated.

What you do to others, you do to yourself.

What you do to yourself, you do to others."

Quote by Pema Chodron, Heart Advice, Weekly Quotes.
