Steadfast

May 17, 2017

We can learn to gradually

develop the trust

to surrender into the unknown

by developing steadfastness

with our self,

steadfastness with our fears.

This comes from developing

clear seeing

of all that arises

in our heart and our mind

without pushing away

what we don’t like

or getting cozy

with what we find attractive,

and without disassociating or acting out.

We need to be relaxed more and more

with our own uneasy,

insecure energy

and to stay with our self

through highs and lows.

~ Pema Chödrön

(1936 to pres., Buddhist Teacher)
