If you fall down...

If you fall down (and we all fall down) you will learn to get back up again. Pema Chodron recently gave a commencement speech entitled, "Fail, Fail again, Fail better". Her point to this graduating class was that failing is an unavoidable fact of the human experience. There will be times when things are not going your way. Things seem absolutely out of control. Failing is not a question, how you fail, is always the important piece. Suffering is an unavoidable portion of human life and the first noble truth of Buddhism. To suffer is to endure pain or distress; sustain loss, injury, harm or punishment. Paradoxically, finding your way through difficult times - finding a way to get back up again bares some of the sweetest fruits of life.

From frustration you find the inner resource, somewhere, somehow. Whether you're wrangling with a cancer diagnosis, the death of a loved one, the depths of clinical depression, or out-of-your-skin anxiety....even with seemingly impossible circumstances, you can learn how to get back up again...If you haven't seen Nick Vujicic's "Are you going to finish strong?" please click this link and find the hope to get back up again.
