Contemplative Monday

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


" When we talk about resting in prajnaparamita, (click)

in unconditional bodhichitta (click), what are we asking of ourselves?

We are being encouraged to be open to the present groundless moment,

to a direct, unarmored participation with our experience. 

We are certainly not being asked to trust that everything is going to be all right.

Moving in the direction of nothing to hold to is daring.

We will not initially experience it as a thrilling, alive, wonderful way to be.

How many of us fell ready to interrupt our habitual patterns,

our most instinctual ways of getting comfortable?"
