More good stuff

I always enjoy receiving Ocean of Dharma Quotes of the Week emails. This past week's was:


"The journey of working with fear takes place slowly and repeatedly as you go along the path. You may have many reruns: big reruns and then smaller reruns. Each time you experience fear, you reexperience and reconnect with the whole idea of genuineness, further and more completely. Fear will definitely arise in your life. Therefore it's crucial to understand how to combat that fear by going further into it and then coming out."

~From "The Other Side of Fear" in Smile at Fear: Awakening the True Heart of Bravery, page 108.

If you enjoyed this quotion, you might be interested to know that the October 15-17 Smile at Fear retreat with Pema Chodron can be attended via live webcast. Learn more here. Needless to say, I'm so virtually there!
