Teaser Tuesdays 9/24/13


Tuesday Teasers!

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

• Grab your current read • Open to a random page • Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page • BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!) • Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!
 

The Wisdom of No Escape: And the Path of Loving-Kindness (Shambhala Library) by Pema Chodron

Page 123. From an everyday perspective, it seems good to do things that are kind of convenient; there is no problem with that journey – which is to say, when you start to want to live your life fully instead of opting for death when you begin to feel this passion for life and for growth, when discovery and exploration and curiosity become your path – then basically, if you follow your heart, you’re going to find that it’s often extremely inconvenient.

Summary from Amazon “It’s possible to say yes to life in all its manifestations, Pema Chödrön teaches—by embracing all the happiness and suffering, all the intelligence and confusion that are a natural part of our existence. Doing so opens a wellspring of courage and love within our hearts. In this gift edition of her first book, Pema presents traditional Buddhist wisdom that anyone can relate to.”

    1. Not my typical book either. It was a bit difficult to read because I am not as educated in Buddhism. But the message was wonderful.
