Overview

The Places That Scare You: A Guide to Fearlessness in Difficult Times by Pema Chodron, Joanna Rotte

We always have a choice, Pema Chödrön teaches: We can let the circumstances of our lives harden us and make us increasingly resentful and afraid—or we can let them soften us and make us kinder. Here Pema provides the tools to deal with the difficulties that life throws our way so we can:

   • wholeheartedly accept ourselves and others, complete with imperfections
   • stay in the present moment by seeing through strategies that cause us to resist life as it is
   • tap into our natural reservoirs of humor, flexibility, courage, and wisdom
   • courageously move toward what makes us feel insecure in a way that opens our heart and connects us with others

4 CDs, 4 ½ hours, unabridged.

This book is for anyone who lives in fear and in pain. If you're a spiritual person, or one who tries to become more spiritual, this book will give you a lot to work on, enough to keep you busy until you die. I recommend reading the book slowly, while examining your life thus far as you read on. If you do the spiritual work described by the author, your life will be profoundly changed.

The suggestion of the previous review is excellent -- read this book slowly. Or read it multiple times. People spend so much time trying to avoid the inevitable pain in life, and, like avoiding going to the doctor, it usually causes the pain to increase until you must face it. Pema Chodron explains how to go through pain instead of around it, then let it go.
