I just started to listen to Tara Brach. She has wonderful insights. She recorded two talks on resilience. I am going to post both of them. I think the most interesting thing she explores is that true resilience, and I think she is so right about this, is not just about picking yourself up again, true resilience is an opportunity to awaken and evolve. I know, the harder things are, the more I am required to develop and see what patterns keep tripping me up. Coming back to the present, seeing that “right here, right now” everything is probably OK, is usually the first step.
