Contemplative Monday


The following has been taken from 'Heart Advice, Weekly Quotes from Pema Chodron'.

RELAX AS IT IS


"We can stop struggling with what occurs and see its true face 
without calling it the enemy.


It helps to remember that our spiritual practice is not about accomplishing anything-----


not about winning or losing-----but about ceasing to struggle and relaxing as it is.


That is what we are doing as we sit down to meditate.


That attitude spreads into the rest of our lives."

  3. I had a problem during the weekend and I was upset about it. I reminded myself that it could work out after a period of time, that I didn't have to fix it right that minute. I felt so much better, and today, the problem has been solved.

    Love,
    Janie
