The Buddha at Work's "Working for the Weekend" Quote for 9/24/10

"One way of understanding authentic healing... true spiritual awakening, is that it's not anything we're attaining. We're not achieving or attaining anything. That true spiritual awakening comes from letting go of the stories about who we think we are. Letting go of the stories that shape our sense of our self. And it's in the letting go of the stories that we tell ourselves, it's in that silence, and that openness, that we come home to a direct realization of our nature."

- Tara Brach, "Be All That You Are"

"Perhaps the biggest tragedy in our lives is that freedom is possible, yet we can pass our years trapped in the same old patterns. Entangled in the trance of unworthiness, we grow accustomed to caging ourselves in with self-judgment and anxiety, with restlessness and dissatisfaction.... We may want to love other people without holding back, to feel authentic, to breathe in the beauty around us, to dance and sing. Yet each day we listen to inner voices that keep our life small."
