I thought the above analogy by Pema was really profound. Also, "if you don't reject the emotions, they actually become your friends." I'm so intrigued by the book. Thank you for sharing some excerpts and your take on it on Pema's teachings.
I am looking forward to trying the 2-second rule and seeing what happens.
Very well written, Monique! This is one of my favorite pieces you've written. Thank you for sharing!
