really liked it

A collection of the best of Pema Chodron, doesn't disappoint. Chodron emphasizes the art of resting in uncertainty or what is known as living the openness of the present moment and being available to others. As I been on a journey of mindfulness and awareness of late it was shown again that meditation has qualities that are beneficial for me.

Chodron introduces the practices of the four limitless qualities: loving-kindness, compassion, joy and equanimity. These are seemingly universal amongst various world religions. Who doesn't want a more compassionate life? Full of generosity, patience, exertion, meditation and wisdom?

An easy read. It's easy to take in the philosophy and teaching while being able to separate it from the religion, for those that may be in freak out mode about reading something non-Christian.
