Pema Chödrön: Natural Warmth

I am moved to share another quote from Pema Chödrön, who has made a profound difference in my life. This is from "Taking the Leap," a book I loved and that my nearly 30 year old son is now immersed in. Gratitude for all our teachers everywhere who have supported us in our journeys of awakening to love. 
With love & blessings ~ Molly

Natural warmth is our shared capacity to love, to have empathy, to have a sense of humor. It is also our capacity to feel gratitude and appreciation and tenderness. It’s the whole gamut of what often are called the heart qualities, qualities that are a natural part of being human. Natural warmth has the power to heal all relationships—the relationship with ourselves as well as with people, animals, and all that we encounter every day of our lives.
