Sitting With It...

What does it take for you to just Sit With It? Finding that zone of Peace even in times of trouble, fear, immobilization can be just a moment a way, or hours, days, weeks. Pema Chodron wrote:

"Only to the extent that we expose ourselves over and over to annihilation can that which is indestructible be found in us"

"Things falling apart is a kind of testing and also a kind of healing. We think that the point is to pass the test or to overcome the problem, but the truth is that things don't really get solved. They come together and they fall apart. Then they come together and fall apart again. It 's just like that. The healing comes from letting there be room for all of this to happen: room for grief, for relief, for misery, for joy"

Take some time to sit quietly with that which binds you. Realize your True Freedom comes from Within.
