Pema Chodron
printer friendly version
We habitually erect a barrier called blame that keeps us from
communicating genuinely with others, and we fortify it with
our concepts of who's right and who's wrong. We do that
with the people who are closest to us and we do it with
political systems, with all kinds of things that we don't like
about our associates or our society. It is a very common,
ancient, well-perfected device for trying to feel better. Blame
others. Blaming is a way to protect your heart, trying to protect
what is soft and open and tender in yourself. Rather than own
that pain, we scramble to find some comfortable ground.
