Pema Chodron, When Things Fall Apart!!


.

“The way to dissolve our resistance to life is to meet it face to face. When we feel resentment because the room is too hot, we could meet the heat and feel its fieriness and its heaviness. When we feel resentment because the room is too cold, we could meet the cold and feel its iciness and its bite. When we want to complain about the rain we could feel its wetness instead.
.
When we worry because the wind is shaking our windows, we could meet the wind and hear its sound. Cutting our expectations for a cure is a gift we can give ourselves. There is no cure for hot and cold. They will go on forever.”
.
.
Maybe we could add approval or disapproval, like the wind, they are always present in some intensity.
.
Approval and disapproval change as all impermanent things do.
.
Our goal in life is to be free of judgments like approval or disapproval, and live life fully.
