In her book, In When Things Fall Apart: Heart Advice for Difficult Times, Pema Chödrön writes:
This very moment is the perfect teacher, and it’s always with us… Awakeness is found in our pleasure and our pain, our confusion and our wisdom, available in each moment of our weird, unfathomable, ordinary everyday lives.
I love this as she talks to being present – in the “now” – and accepting wherever we are at in the moment. For me, it’s about being comfortable with being uncomfortable. With acceptance of both the “good” and the “bad” is a form of inner peace without the striving to be, do or think something else.
Enjoy the moment!
