do no harm…


″Not causing harm requires staying awake. Part of being awake is slowing down enough to notice what we say and do. The more we witness our emotional chain reactions and understand how they work, the easier it is to refrain. It becomes a way of life to stay awake, slow down, and notice.″

~ Pema Chödrön

non-harming is both path and practice, how we relate to and move within this world. it is a choice we can make. in Buddhism it is also a vow. it is a practice we commit to returning to time and again. 

and ultimately it is a way of embodying love.
