Awakened Heart

“The basic notion of lojong is that we can make friends with…what we see as ‘bad’. … At the same time, we could learn to be generous with what we cherish…If we begin to live in this way, something in us that may have been buried for a long time begins to ripen. … It’s called bodhichitta, or awakened heart.  It’s something that we already have but usually have not yet discovered.”

Pema Chodron (Start Where You Are: A Guide to Compassionate Living)
