Pema Chodron, was given the following advice by Machig Labdron, when she asked him how to obtain enlightenment. This was his way to work with fear, aversions and suffering.
1. Confess your hidden faults.
2. Approach what you find repulsive.
3. Help those you think you can’t.
4. Anything you are attached to, let it go.
5. Go to the places that scare you.
Wow, I get overwhelmed just thinking about these five.
