We Deserve Better

April 21st, 2014

“As human beings, not only do we seek resolution, but we also feel that we deserve resolution. However, not only do we not deserve resolution, we suffer from resolution. We don’t deserve resolution; we deserve something better than that. We deserve our birthright, which is the middle way, an open state of mind that can relax with paradox and ambiguity.”
— Pema Chödrön

Anita Bergen — Why must we limit our reality with absolutes? A black or white viewpoint can be very constricting. Perhaps, a gentler perspective, without sharp edges, a bit softer in color, would widen our panorama and open our world to delicious ambiguity and even greater possibilities.
