"We Already Have Everything We Need..."

Today I would like to share this text by Pema Chödrön with you. It really moved me because all my life I have been trying to improve myself in some way (and when you read this blog you know I still do).
First I thought it was because I wanted people to accept me for who I am but now I realize that I was still trying to accept myself. Deep down inside there was always a negative feeling about myself.

But since I became a mother I started to feel more love for myself. I discovered that I'm able to love unconditional and that love has opened me, and it was there all along.
“We already have everything we need.
There is no need for self-improvement.

All these trips that we lay on ourselves —the heavy-duty fearing that we’re bad and hoping that we’re good, the identities that we so dearly cling to, the rage, the jealousy and the addictions of all kinds— never touch our basic wealth.

They are like clouds that temporarily block the sun.
But all the time our warmth and brilliance are right here.
This is who we really are.

We are one blink of an eye away from being fully awake.”

~ Pema Chödrön

Thank you for being here today, take care, xxx!


  1. Lovely words and colors,
    I often feel that when the money is a bit low and times are a bit tricky, I always say, "We have enough to meet our needs, all our needs are met"
    This reminds me of all the things that I have, and I ask and it comes, it is rather amazing how it comes.
    We are all that we are, so often I see people struggle with attending creative courses on how to live life, they do not need these, they are just fine as they are, this does take time to realize though, and is a journey in itself,

    cheers Marie
