Compassion

unknown

From Pema Chodron’s The Places and Scare You: A Guide to Fearlessness in Difficult Times: “Its up to us. We can spend our lives cultivating our resentments and cravings or we can explore the path of …nurturing open-mindedness and courage. Most of us keep strengthening our negative habits and therefore sow the seeds of our own suffering. The bodhichitta [compassion] practices, however, are ways for us to sow the seeds of well-being. Particularly powerful are the aspiration practices of the four limitless qualities—loving-kindness, compassion, joy, and equanimity.”
