Contemplative Monday

The following quote was taken from 'Heart Advice, Weekly Quotes from Pema Chodron':


"Learning how to be kind to ourselves is important.

When we look into our own hearts and begin to discover what is confused and what is brilliant, 

what is bitter and what is sweet, it isn't just ourselves that we're discovering.

We're discovering the universe. 

When we discover the Buddha that we are, we realize that everything and everyone is Buddha.

We discover that everything is awake, and everyone is awake.

Everything and everyone is precious and whole and good.

When we regard thoughts and emotions with humor and openness,

that's how we perceive the universe."
