Daily Dose of Inspiration

“Everything is ambiguous; everything is always shifting and changing, and there are as many different takes on any given situation as there are people involved. Trying to find absolute rights and wrongs is a trick we play on ourselves to feel more secure and comfortable.”

~ Pema Chodron

Think about this one, my friend. Absolutes just box us into corners. We might feel safer that way, but the limits make us uptight and rigid with no room to move. Maybe we feel more secure but really we’re stuck.

Give yourself some breathing room by trying on some other perspectives, the more the merrier even. It won’t be long before you realize that you just can’t know for sure so you might as well let go.

And when you let go you relax. Right? I trust you know, my friend, that everything is always better when you’re relaxed.
