Via Shambhala Publications: Pema Chödrön

 
Relaxing in the midst of chaos,
learning not to panic—this is the spiritual path.



Disappointment, embarrassment, irritation, resentment, anger, jealousy, and fear, instead of being bad news, are actually very clear moments that teach us where it is that we’re holding back. They teach us to perk up and lean in when we feel we’d rather collapse and back away.
