Tara Brach’s “Radical Acceptance: Embracing Your Life with the Heart of the Buddha”: The Importance of Pausing

“Pausing is the gateway to Radical Acceptance. In the midst of a pause, we are giving room and attention to the life that is always streaming through us, the life that is habitually overlooked. It is in this rest under the bodhi tree that we realize the natural freedom of our heart and awareness.  Like the Buddha, rather than running away, we need only commit ourselves to arriving, here and now, with wholehearted presence.”
