Pema Chödrön

By integrating self-acceptance, calm reflection, and a deeper appreciation for the present moment into your daily life, you can better cope with challenges. Additionally, understanding your fears, acknowledging flaws and difficulties, and embracing both pleasant and unpleasant aspects of life can foster stronger connections with friends, family, and even strangers. Embrace your current state of being. If you find traditional meditation difficult due to persistent stressful thoughts, consider practicing the shamatha-vipashyana meditation technique. Direct your focus to your breath, and when your mind strays, label those distracting thoughts as "thinking" without judgment. Then, return gently to your breath. Accepting your distractions without judgment is self-compassion in action.
