Contemplative Monday

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


"The opposite of samsara (the cycle of suffering) is when all the walls fall down,

when the cocoon completely disappears
 and we are totally open to whatever may happen,

with no withdrawing, no centralizing into ourselves.

That is what we aspire to, the warrior's journey. That is what stirs us:

leaping, being thrown out of the nest, going through the initiation rites, 
growing up, stepping into something that's uncertain and unknown."
