Pema Chödrön Quotes – Writing Prompt #89 – January 11, 2015


Choose a quote that resonates with you (you are not limited to this list) and explore it through art, photography, poetry, parable etc. :

“Nothing ever goes away until it has taught us what we need to know.”

“This moving away from comfort and security, this stepping out into what is unknown, uncharted, and shaky, that’s called liberation.”

“When we resist change, it’s called suffering. But when we can completely let go and not struggle against it, when we can embrace the groundlessness of our situation and relax into it’s dynamic quality, that’s called enlightenment.”

“Compassion for others begins with kindness to ourselves.”

“The future is completely open, and we are writing it moment to moment.”

 “The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree.” (Jan. 18th)

About Georgia

I love to read...I like to write...I've travelled the world and seen the sites. I'm past my prime and feel so young, especially when near the young. I'm writing this blog, to remember, to think and to share...with the hopes that someone else will make a comment that will stimulate new thoughts and pathways. Actually, I'm a gabber, so the logical extension of gabbing is blogging! ;-)

      Darn … I’m at my wits end and don’t know what to do with these things … I’m so happy you linked Michael, thanks for letting me know.

        Don’t worry if we link to the page all is good.

        Exactly … I’ll have to go back to the drawing board here.

  4. Shakespeare is full of quotations – how did he remember them all? I can’t think of one!

      That man was a well! He really must have had a formidable memory … he sure was prolific.

    OK I’m coming here first because once I visit the frog… the main post will vanish.

      Sorry Dear, I’m going to have to do the prompts in future without either of the link apps … we’ll have to rely on pingbacks and tags.

      • julespaige

        That’ll work. At least with Pingbacks, links in comments, and/or tags you can see who is posting what. I have tended to do both the pingback and a link in the comment section just in case there were issues. Sometimes improvements well, they aren’t.
        WP added some stuff I wonder if that was the cause of the most resent grief? They changed the area around where you log out and have given you choices that, well don’t apply to most of what I do.

        What works best for the Host is nothing to ever be sorry for.

    OK I see the photo link is gone…but I still don’t know who is who when folks only put their title in.

    This is my quote, from Start Where You Are: “When you begin to touch your heart or let your heart be touched, you begin to discover that it’s bottomless, that it doesn’t have any resolution, that this heart is huge, vast, and limitless. You begin to discover how much warmth and gentleness is there, as well as how much space.”

    And here is my collage, called Heart expansion: https://aboutwhatmatters.wordpress.com/2014/12/28/beaming-love-to-the-world/

      Very very true … especially if we have the patience of Job and the character of the Buddha 😉

        I find it can be done with a bit less than that, since I would say I have neither of those 😉 Just to clarify, I have two separate entries … I see now why Mr Linky was so darn handy! Great prompt 🙂

        Sorry … I was in a bad moment when I commented, and yes, Mr. Linky is very handy especially when people like to post more than once … which is a great think … thanks.

        No no … I was just teasing 🙂
