1. Durga's Toolbox

    Thanks for the link. One of my favorite teachers, the Buddhist nun Pema Chodron once wrote that your heart can be broken or it can be broken wide open–to become so aware of the experience of others that you can’t close yourself off to it ever again. I think that it takes a lot less than the intensity of your mother’s or even my experience to have your heart broken open. Even “white, comfortable, loved” people! And that I think it the place we all connect–in realizing that this life isn’t unfolding the way we planned, but that there is richness and beauty not despite of the chaos but because of it.

      Wow. Thanks. One thing I learned from my wife. When you open your heart it all comes out, the good, the bad, and the ugly.
