“In each of us, there’s a lot of softness, a lot of heart. Touching that soft spot has to be the starting place. This is what compassion is all about. When we stop blaming long enough to give ourselves an open space in which to feel our soft spot, it’s as if we’re reaching down to touch a large wound that lies right underneath the protective shell that blaming builds” Pema Chodron .
We went out to the the desert. The sacred space. Looking for space. Looking for answers. Looking for peace. Looking for a way to touch the wound and find the soft spot. And between the red earth, the holy wind, and the wide open sky, in that space, a little unwinding, a little soften, and a lot of heart. Will always be a lot of heart. #progressnotperfection#recovery#healing#heart
