by Pema Chödrön
This is simply a masterpiece. Pema Chödrön creates an impersonal context in which all of us can feel as though the words are just for us. Her voice sounds like it might be my own, except wiser, and I’m listening. Keep getting up. Keep moving forward. Keep knowing that the waves are coming; you can stand there, “holding the rawness of vulnerability in your heart” until the waves seem smaller. This is it.
