02 May When Everything Falls Out – Hard Times Guidance
Happiness is within our reach, yet we so often lose sight of it, ironically in an attempt to avoid pain and suffering. Pema Chödrön's radical and compassionate text meets our expectations and habits of conversation “when everything falls apart” and confronts us with Buddhist wisdom. There is only one attitude towards suffering, Pema teaches, and this attitude is the one that walks towards difficult situations with affability and curiosity, letting oneself be carried away by the insecurity of the situation. It is there, in the midst of chaos, that we discover indestructible truth and love.
