Living Beautifully with Uncertainty and Change

Living Beautifully with Uncertainty  and Change Living Beautifully with Uncertainty and Change Shambhala

Pema Chodron

Shambhala Publications, 2012 

Pema Chodron, American Buddhist nun and an internationally renowned author  (When Things Fall Apart and The Pocket Pema Chodron), outlines the ways in which we get ourselves untangled from our egos and deal with the challenges of change to live a more peaceful life. With honesty and clarity and compassion, Chodron examines the reason for these difficult moments in life and leads us to a solution.

The solution to our dilemma is from the Buddha. Specificially, Chodron discusses the Three Vows or Three Commitments. The first is a commitment not to harm and to do good to others, the second, a "commitment to helping others," and the third, to embrace "the world as it is."  As readers begin to follow this process, they will find these three naturally unfolding so that they are able to be with others compassionately and accept life around them without the pain of reactivity.
