Pema Chodron


When things are shaky and nothing is working, we might realize that we are on the verge of something. We might realize that this is a very vulnerable and tender place, and that tenderness can go either way. We can shut down and feel resentful or we can touch in on that throbbing quality. There is definitely something tender and throbbing about groundlessness…

We would do well to remember that in these times when we feel poised in a historical moment, one where change is imminent, that it will be messy and time-consuming and satisfying and liberating. All of those things.

Sticking with that uncertainty, getting the knack of relaxing in the midst of chaos, learning not to panic – this is the spiritual path.. Interview with Pema Chodron from the Huffington Post
