The Places that Scare You by Pema Chodron

“For instance, even in the rock hardness of the aggression, we’ll generally find fear. Underneath the defensiveness is the brokenhearted, unshielded quality of bodhichitta. Rather than feel this tenderness, however, we tend to close down and protect against the discomfort.” pg. 56

Teaser Tuesdays is hosted by Should Be Reading.
