10-21-21 Freedom!!

We are all addicted to struggle. And our lives are oftentimes about struggling with the struggle, which equals suffering. Join Mary in exploring a pathway out of the world of struggle so you can know again the joy of being present for life.

“Nothing ever really attacks us except our own confusion. perhaps there is no solid obstacle except our own need to protect ourselves from being touched. maybe the only enemy is that we don’t like the way reality is now and therefore wish it would go away fast. but what we find as practitioners is that nothing ever goes away until it has taught us what we need to know. if we run a hundred miles an hour to the other end of the continent in order to get away from the obstacle, we find the very same problem waiting for us when we arrive. it just keeps returning with new names, forms, manifestations until we learn whatever it has to teach us about where we are separating ourselves from reality, how we are pulling back instead of opening up, closing down instead of allowing ourselves to experience fully whatever we encounter, without hesitating or retreating into ourselves.”  Pema Chodron

Three statements:
Without changing anything, notice what is here.
Without changing anything, allow what is here to be here
Without changing anything, bring tenderness to who/what is here.
