A sense of poverty

“Hope and fear come from feeling that we lack something; they come from a sense of poverty. We can’t simply relax with ourselves. We hold on to hope, and hope robs us of the present moment. We feel that someone else knows what’s going on, but that there’s something missing in us, and therefore something is lacking in our world.” ~  Pema Chödrön from  from “When Things Fall Apart: Heart Advice for Difficult Times”

  1. I have read the book. The photo you have matched to the quote conjures up that sense of not knowing where we are heading. Fantastic.

  2. Love this Bill, thank you
