This is a two part post. I have to say, I'm really really enjoying and resonating with Pema Chodrön. And today's two part post is inspired by her teaching.
Today's aspiration is to kindly acknowledge my shenpa - or thinking with hooks.
Example: I've already thought about how fat I am today. Many many times. That thinking creates an unease in my body. For the rest of the day, I will aspire to catch myself when that thinking comes and acknowledge by simply identifying it: shenpa.
Part two will come tonight - I'll briefly report how I did.
