PRICELESS ADVICE by Pema Chödrön

"The next time you lose heart and you can’t bear to experience what you’re feeling, you might recall this instruction: change the way you see it and lean in. Instead of blaming our discomfort on outer circumstances or on our own weakness, we can choose to stay present and awake to our experience, not rejecting it, not grasping it, not buying the stories that we relentlessly tell ourselves.

PRICELESS ADVICE by Pema Chödrön

"The next time you lose heart and you can’t bear to experience what you’re feeling, you might recall this instruction: change the way you see it and lean in. Instead of blaming our discomfort on outer circumstances or on our own weakness, we can choose to stay present and awake to our experience, not rejecting it, not grasping it, not buying the stories that we relentlessly tell ourselves. This is priceless advice that addresses the true cause of suffering—yours, mine, and that of all living beings."

The ancient words "Baruch Bashan" {bay-roosh bay-shan}
mean... "The Blessings Already Are."

If an egg is broken by an outside force, life ends.
If broken by an inside force, life begins.
Great things always happen from the inside.

The prettiest smiles hide the deepest secrets.
The prettiest eyes have cried the most tears.
and the kindest hearts have felt the most pain

You gain strength and courage, and confidence by every experience
in which you stop to look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself
"I have lived through this horror, I can take the next thing that comes along."
~You must do the thing you think you cannot do.~

Every day you wait is another day you will never get back again.
The most important thing is not to be bitter about life's disappointments.
Learn to let go of the past.
Don't be afraid to make mistakes, because most of the time
the greatest rewards come from doing the things that scare you the most.
Maybe you'll get everything you wish for.
Maybe you'll get more than you could ever imagine.
Who knows where life may take you?
The road is long...and in the end,
the journey is your destination.
