A Guide to Compassionate Living This guide is a Buddhist nun for regular folks. Having raised a family of her own, she doesn't shy away from persistent troubles and the basic meatiness of life. In fact, tries to help us see that the faults and foibles in each of us now are the perfect ingredients for creating a better life. No need to wait for a quieter time or a more settled mind. The trick is to repattern ourselves, to transform bad habits into good by first opening ourselves to the groundlessness of existence. Fearlessness opens the way to recognizing our pushy egos and the squishy feeling inside that we all have; it is the seat of true compassion, and we all do our best to armor over. Chodron is the kind of teacher who has seen it all and keeps pushing us back into ourselves until there's no one left to wrestle with but a certain recalcitrant image in the mirror.
