Sep 9 - 15

Summer, week 12
"We use our daily activity as a shield against the fundamental ambiguity of our situation, expending tremendous energy trying to ward off impermanence and death. We don't like it that our bodies change shape. We don't like it that we age. The Buddhist teachings encourage us to relax gradually and wholeheartedly into the ordinary and obvious truth of change. We no longer believe that there are people who have managed to avoid uncertainty." --Pema Chodron
