Pema Chödrön: True Spiritual Warriorship

 Take Responsibility

If we want there to be peace in the world, then we have to take responsibility when our own hearts and minds harden and close. We have to be brave enough to soften what is rigid, to find the soft spot and stay with it. We have to have that kind of courage and take that kind of responsibility. That’s true spiritual warriorship. That’s the true practice of peace.

-Pema Chödrön, 
from Practicing Peace in Times of War
