"Nothing ever goes away until it teaches us what we need to know." Pema Chodron
Ah yes, my old friend ego popping up to re-teach me something this week. I sure wish I could learn the lesson and be done with it. In a sure sign of progress however, I find I am able to recognize that growing edge more quickly these days. Then I can ask myself that defining question...
Do I want to be right or do I want to be at peace?
These days, I'll take peace any day.
