To Being a Warrior


Happy New Year to you and yours!

I am wishing you much peace, love, and joy in 2013.

Here is my aspiration for you (and me) for next year and always.  It is from The Places That Scare You: A Guide to Fearlessness in Difficult Times by Pema Chodron, one amazing woman who inspires me.

Warmest regards,

Jocelyn

"May the roots of suffering diminish.
May warfare, violence, neglect, indifference, and addictions also decrease.
May the wisdom and compassion of all beings increase, now and into the future.
May we clearly see all the barriers we erect between ourselves and others to be as insubstantial as our dreams.
May we appreciate the great perfection of all phenomena.
May we continue to open our HEARTS and our MINDS, in order to work ceaselessly for the benefit of all beings.
May we go to the places that scare us.
May we lead the life of a warrior."
