Surrender to all changes in life. They are here to grow us.

Why is it that we are surprised when there is suffering or challenges in our life?
Pema Chödrön reminds us that when things fall apart it’s not only to challenge us but to create change and healing in us. So often, I have resisted suffering or the challenging times, however, when I allow life to fall apart and work through the teaching it has for me, I come back together again more easily.
Life is always evolving and our only job is to practice moving with it, and learning how to adapt to the changes. Pema says that our healing comes from letting there be room for everything. Room for our grief, for relief, for renewal, for misery, for joy and allowing ourselves to let it all go and start again.
Freedom, resilience and peace are always found in this practice.

I can attest to having made more room for everything lately! Wonderful article, Karen
Yes! Unfortunately, it can come in tidal waves at times. Sending you love and strength Ka and always ask for support when you need it 🥰💕
2 wise women said these words. “Let there be room for everything”…. and “Always ask for support when you need it.” 💛🙏💛
Thank you beautiful Val 💕💚
Wise words, Karen! xx
Thanks Jennifer 💕😊
There’s no shortage of challenges during this pandemic.
I agree Rosaliene and that’s because we have a lot to let go of and change within us. I think we used to be able to escape it, but not now. 😊
One growth opportunity after another… many lessons, so little time! ;D
We are busy Eliza ha! 💕💚
As usual Pema Chodron is not only right but spot on. I personally have experienced things falling apart badly once it lasted 8 years, but now it has come back so much better than before. Sometimes we just need space. Good post Karen 🙂
Its such a good feeling when we come back together Michele, and even better when we have learned the lesson 🥰💚
Pema is a rock star, in my book. And I love the idea of allowing room. That sounds expansive rather than painful . . .
Yes. Room to let go. Room to receive! 🤗
Yes it took a long time for me to realise I am the light and the dark! We have been taught to hide anything bad… thank goodness we’re coming back to our senses! Beautiful writing karen❤️
Thank you Barbara and yes, each of us has the opportunity to heal and awaken our authentic and beautiful self 👏🥰💚
