The Street


From Pema Chodron’s The Places and Scare You: A Guide to Fearlessness in Difficult Times: “We might be shocked to find how indifferent or even fearful we are toward so many people. Particularly if we live in a city, there are thousands of people whom we ignore every day….When we look at someone on the street and wish her to be free of suffering, that person begins to come into focus. We can actually feel the barriers come down. By making this compassionate aspiration, we start to free ourselves from the prison of isolation and indifference.”
