I love the title! Have you read this yet?

Yes, and pretty much every page is flagged! Some excerpts: “The radical approach of bodhichitta practice is to pay attention to what we do. Without judging it we train in kindly acknowledging whatever is going on. Eventually we might decide to stop hurting ourselves in the same old way.”

”Dissolving our assumptions and beliefs-is the best use of our human lives.”

”Egolessness is a flexible identity. It manifests as inquisitiveness, as adaptability, as humor, as playfulness. It is our capacity to relax with not knowing, not figuring everything out, and with not being at all sure about who we are-or who anyone else is either.”

 

These excerpts are just from first 20 pages! I recommend all books by Chodron..another great one is ‘Welcoming the Unwelcome.’
