Pema Chödrön on opening to the flow of experience

“When you open yourself to the continually changing, impermanent, dynamic nature of your own being and of reality, you increase your capacity to love and care about other people and your capacity to not be afraid. You’re able to keep your eyes open, your heart open, and your mind open. And you notice when you get caught up in prejudice, bias, and aggression. You develop an enthusiasm for no longer watering those negative seeds, from now until the day you die. And you begin to think of your life as offering endless opportunities to start to do things differently.”

Pema Chödrön ‘Practising Peace in Times of War’

Just what Carl Rogers observed…. And deeply relevant to all of us right now….
