TO BE HUMAN

Zen Roshi Pema Chodron notes, “Although it is embarrassing and painful, it is very healing to stop hiding from yourself. It is healing to know all the ways that you shut down, deny, close off, and criticize people, all your weird little ways. You can know all that with some sense of humor and kindness. By knowing yourself, you’re coming to know humanness altogether”

What a gift to know yourself, warts and all.

What a gift to have a shot at truly being kind and compassionate with a human twist….your twist.

What a difference.

Whew, this might take some work on my part!
