#words don’t come easy

Por isso, ficam as palavras de Pema Chödrön .
As minhas – palavras – não me apetecem.

“What keeps us unhappy and stuck in a limited view of reality is our tendency to seek pleasure and avoid pain, to seek security and avoid groundlessness, to seek comfort and avoid discomfort. This is how we keep ourselves enclosed in a cocoon. Life in our cocoon is cozy and secure. The mind is always seeking zones of safety, and these zones of safety are continually falling apart. That’s the essence of samsara – the cycle of suffering that comes from continuing to seek happiness in all the wrong places.”

In Comfortable with Uncertainty  by Pema Chödrön
