The way you say it

October 9, 2008

Pema Chodron consistently delivers dharma in a manner that I “get”. So I couldn’t resist posting this snippet from Tricycle.org.The “shaky kind of place” means to me that you do not judge yourself for “right” or “wrong” intentions when you catch them before you act. This is also posted on the Daily Dharma page.

Compassionate action starts with seeing yourself when you start to make yourself right and when you start to make yourself wrong. At that point you could just contemplate the fact that there is a larger alternative to either of those, a more tender, shaky kind of place where you could live.
