I got the quote below in an email today from Total Immersion. As we near the end of this year and start a new - I thought these reflections are appropriate.
"Pema Chodron is an American Buddhist teacher and prolific author. Last spring I ordered her book Start Where You Are. The book is based on 59 Buddhist maxims and includes such guidance as:
Accepting others starts with accepting yourself
Embrace the painful, as well as the positive aspects, of life.
Unclench your heart and mind. Dare to taste defeat.
Learning to relate to pleasure and joy-and fear and pain-helps reveal the richness of your own life - and all life."
Happy New Year.
