Aug 26 - Sep 1

Summer, week 10
"Out there are all the planets and all the galaxies and vast space, but we're stuck here in this cocoon. Moment after moment, we're deciding that we would rather stay in that cocoon than step out into that big space. Life in our cocoon is cozy and secure. We're in this zone of safety and that's what we consider life." --Pema Chodron
