I just finished reading Pema Chödrön’s When Things Fall Apart and recommend it to people who think about mindful acceptance. I love this sentiment, which echoes a book about Enneagram I’ve been working through that talks a lot about the personality as an overlay on our essential self: As human beings, not only do we seek resolution, but we also feel that we deserve resolution. However, not only do we not deserve resolution, we suffer from resolution.
