No Escape

There’s a book by Ven. Pema Chodron called The Wisdom of No Escape and, though I don’t recall ever having read it, I feel like I might have an idea what it’s about. Running from anything in life simply doesn’t work as one can’t escape one’s kamma. So, come what may I ha bed only myself to turn to and only myself to blame. May I always remind myself that I live in a world largely of my making and of I wish to find release it will on my be possible through the Dhamma of patience and the Eightfold Path.
