The Places That Scare You.

"An analogy for Bodhicitta is the rawness of a broken heart.
Sometimes this broken heart gives birth to anxiety and panic,
sometimes to anger, resentment and blame.

But under the hardness if that armour there is the tenderness of genuine sadness.

This continual ache of the heart 
is a blessing that when accepted
can be fully shared with all."

--Pema Chodron, The Places That Scare You, p4

What an amazing year so far. I am truly grateful for all my teachers.
I see the gifts for growth.
