Contemplative Monday

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


"The way we label things is the way they will appear to us.
When we label a piece of the earth China or Brazil
or the United States, it becomes an entity that carries
strong emotional baggage.

When we label something good, we see it as good.
When we label something bad, we see it as bad.

We get so hung up on like and dislike,
on who's right and who's wrong,
as if these labels were ultimately real.

Yet the human experience is an experience
 of nothing to hang on to, nothing that's set once and for all.

Reality is always falling apart.
In this fleeting situation,
the only thing that makes sense
 is for us to reach out to one another."
