Wordful Wednesday

Not much photographing this week.  Am immersing myself in living in the moment and meditating on loving-kindness with the help of these words from Buddhist nun, Pema Chodron, who is one of my favorite authors and whose words I can read again and again:

“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.  Our wisdom is all mixed up with what we call our neurosis. Our brilliance, our juiciness, our spiciness, is all mixed up with our craziness and our confusion, and therefore it doesn’t do any good to try to get rid of our so-called negative aspects, because in that process we also get rid of our basic wonderfulness”.

    Ooh, that’s good…

  2. so what you’re saying is that what drives me up the wall about my personality is what makes me wonderful? Hum… sounds like a book my mom would write 🙂

    very true though.

    may your spiciness mix well with your craziness this week and create loveliness.
