Pema Chodron – How We Block Wisdom

Pema Chodron – How We Block Wisdom


This video is from Belfast Buddhist.

“We always have a choice, Pema Chödrön teaches: We can let the circumstances of our lives harden us and make us increasingly resentful and afraid, or we can let them soften us and make us kinder.

In this talk, Pema provides the tools to deal with the problems and difficulties that life throws our way. This wisdom is always available to us, Pema teaches, but we usually block it with habitual patterns rooted in fear.

Beyond that fear lies a state of openheartedness and tenderness. This talk is a guide on how to awaken our basic goodness and connect with others, to accept ourselves and others complete with faults and imperfections, and to stay in the present moment by seeing through the strategies of ego that cause us to resist life as it is.”

  • I am so greatful to have had the opportunity to listen to this audio meditation.
    It is so good and right on and so very difficult to do. Useally I revel in listening to anything by Perma Chodron and this time I fought all the way wanting to escape it and fo something else to numb away. Thank you again for giving me the opportunity to have listen all the way looking periodically at the time left! It s my first time experience of so much resistance to forgiving myself and sending kindness to myself.
