Aug 19 - 25

Summer, week 9
"When we become aware that we are thinking, we say to ourselves, "thinking," with an unbiased attitude and with tremendous gentleness. This is the point at which we can consciously train in gentleness and in developing a nonjudgmental attitude. Each time you say to yourself "thinking," you are cultivating unconditional friendliness toward whatever arises in your mind." --Pema Chodron
