This is the 2nd of the 3 teachings I selected from The Pocket by Pema Chödron
Pema Chödron is the head resident teacher at Gampo Abbey, Cape Breton, Nova Scotia, the first Tibetan monastery in North America established for Westerners.
"Life is a good teacher and a good friend. Things are always in transition. If we could only realize it. Nothing ever sums itself up in the way that we like to dream about. The off center in-between state is an ideal situation, a situation in which we don't get caught and we can open our hearts and minds beyond limit. It's a very tender, non-aggressive, open ended state of affairs."
Hope you enjoy and benefit from this as I have.
