Contemplative Monday


"The painful thing is that when we buy into disapproval,

we are practicing disapproval.

When we buy into harshness,

we are practicing harshness.

The more we do it, the stronger these qualities become.

How sad it is that we become so expert at causing harm to ourselves and others.

The trick then is to practice gentleness and letting go.

We can learn to meet whatever arises with curiosity 

And not make it such a big deal."

The above quote was written by Pema Chodron and was taken from her 'Heart Advice: Weekly Quotes from Pema Chodron'.
