As long as we are caught up in alwasy looking for certainty and happiness, rather than honoring the taste and smell and quality of exactly what is happening, as long as we are always running away from discomfort, we are going to be caught in a cycle of unhappiness and disappointment, and we will feel weaker and weaker.
Instead of asking ourselves, "Howe can I find security and happiness?" we could ask ourselves, "Can I touch the centre of my pain? Can I sit with suffering, both yours and minds, without tyring to make it go away? Can I present to the ache of loss or disgrace......disappointment in all its many forms.......and let it open me? This is the trick.
