Searching through my books…..

Library
Searching through my books today came across this freeing perspective from Pema Chödrön:

“When we start to meditate…we often think that somehow we’re going to improve, which is a subtle aggression against who we really are. Meditation practice isn’t about trying to throw ourselves away and become something better. It’s about befriending who we are already. The ground of practice is you or me or whoever we are right now, just as we are. That’s what we come to know with tremendous curiosity and interest….We recognize our capacity to relax with the clarity, the space, the open-ended awareness that already exists in our minds. We experience moments of being right here that feel simple, direct, and uncluttered.”
