Dzogchen Ponlop Rinpoche in The Huffington Post: "Buddhist Insights for Accepting and Respecting Our Emotions"

The author of the forthcoming REBEL BUDDHA: On the Road to Freedom (Shambhala, November 2010) offers a preview of things to come in this insightful piece about our "emotional signature."  Here's an excerpt:

Why don't we pay more attention to understanding our own patterns? We may have a solid financial plan worked out that will buy us a house and pay for our kids' college and our retirement, but we don't give much thought to getting the most benefit out of one of the most precious resources for happiness -- our emotions. Often, we just leave it to chance.
