Contemplative Monday

The following quote is from 'Heart Advice, Weekly Quotes From Pema Chodron'.


"Sentient beings are the cause of our enlightenment.

When they bother us, we learn patience;

when they're suffering, we learn loving-kindness and compassion.

No matter what reaction they evoke, we can relate to them in a way that relates to buddhahood.

Instead of buying into aversion, we become tolerant.

Instead of staying stuck in selfishness, we extend a hand to someone in distress.

Instead of letting jealousy sabotage us,

we train in rejoicement therapy."
