Contemplative Monday

Today's quote comes from 'Heart Advice, Weekly Quotes from Pema Chodron.


"Hope and fear is a feeling with two sides.

As long as there's one, there's always another.

This is the root of our pain.

In the world of hope and fear, 
we always have to change the channel, change the temperature,

change the music, because something is getting uneasy, something is getting restless,

something is beginning to hurt, and we keep looking for alternatives.

In a nontheistic state of mind, abandoning hope is an aspiration,

the beginning of the beginning.

You could even put 'Abandon hope' on your refrigerator door

instead of the more conventional aspirations like

'Every day in every way I'm getting better and better'."
