The Wisdom Of No Escape and The Path Of Loving Kindness
Pema Chödrön teaches in The Wisdom of No Escape that by embracing all the happiness and suffering, all the intelligence and confusion (that are natural parts of our existence), that it is possible to say yes to life and all it’s manifestations. Doing so opens a wellspring of courage and love within our hearts. In her first book, Pema presents traditional Buddhist wisdom that anyone can relate to.
“Being satisfied with what we already have is a magical golden key to being alive in a full, unrestricted, and inspired way. One of the major obstacles to what is traditionally called enlightenment is resentment, feeling cheated, holding a grudge about who you are, where you are, what you are. Meditation is a process of lightening up, of trusting the basic goodness of what we have and who we are, and of realizing that any wisdom that exists, exists in what we already have.”
