Contemplative Monday

Today's quote is taken from 'Heart Advice, Weekly Quotes From Pema Chodron'.


"Compassion practice is daring.

It involves learning to relax and allowing ourselves to move gently 
toward what scares us.

The trick to doing this is to stay with emotional distress without tightening into aversion;

to let fear soften us rather than harden into resistance.

We cultivate bravery by making aspirations.

We make the wish that all beings, including ourselves and those we dislike,

be free of suffering and the root of suffering."
