Quote

As the Buddhist view has consistently demonstrated, it is the perspective of the sufferer that determines whether a given experience perpetuates suffering or is a vehicle for awakening. To work something through means to change one’s view; if we try instead to change the emotion, we may achieve some short-term success, but we remain bound by forces of attachment and an aversion to the very feelings from which we are struggling to be free.

Say I’m Sorry

When you’re wrong, say I’m sorry…. and really mean it. Doesn’t it feel good to let go of your attachment to being right? It feels good to admit it to yourself. It’s actually freeing! Plus, you’re making someone else feel cared for. Win, win!
