Contemplative Monday

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


"The next time you lose heart 
and you can't bear to experience what you are feeling,

you might recall this instruction: 
change the way you see it and lean in.

Instead of blaming our discomfort on outer circumstances

or on our own weakness, we can choose to stay present 

and awake to our experience, not rejecting it, not grasping it,

not buying the stories that we relentlessly tell ourselves.

This is priceless advice that addresses the true cause of suffering
------yours, mine, and that of all living beings."
