    Greetings anyone curious enough to click on this little thread of mine!

    Pema Chodron is a very popular Buddhist teacher & author.

    One of her books is called "When things fall apart".

    Here's a little taste -

    “Ego could be defined as whatever covers up basic goodness. From an experiential point of view, what is ego covering up? It’s covering up our experience of just being here, just fully being where we are, so that we can relate with the immediacy of our experience. Egolessness is a state of mind that has complete confidence in the sacredness of the world. It is unconditional well-being, unconditional joy that includes all the different qualities of our experience.”

    You can find dozens more extracts from her books in this pdf file online -

    Wishing you all the best!
