“Waking Up from the Trance of Unworthin


“Waking Up from the Trance of Unworthiness .The pain is to wake up to explore how we begin to stop the war against ourselves…you can say, “I want to be able to be gentle to this place that feels so bad.” Then there’s a shift. The shift is a move from the unworthy self to a compassionate presence that is witnessing the unworthy self.”- Tara Brach

“Ordinarily, we don’t let ourselves exp


“Ordinarily, we don’t let ourselves experience ourselves fully. That is to say, we have a fear of facing ourselves. Experiencing the innermost core of their existence is embarrassing to a lot of people. We cannot do that. We have to be honest with ourselves. We have to see our gut, our most undesirable parts. We have to see that. That is the basis of conquering fear. We have to face our fear; we have to look at it, study it, work with it, and practice meditation with it.”
— Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche

“Before you know what kindness really i


“Before you know what kindness really is you must lose things,
feel the future dissolve in a moment like salt in a weakened broth.What you held in your hand,what you counted and carefully saved, all this must go so you know….Before you know kindness as the deepest thing inside,
you must know sorrow as the other deepest thing.
You must wake up with sorrow.
You must speak to it till your voice
catches the thread of all sorrows
and you see the size of the cloth…..Then it is only kindness that makes sense anymore,
only kindness that ties your shoes and sends you out into the day to mail letters and
purchase bread, only kindness that raises its head from the crowd of the world to say
it is I you have been looking for, and then goes with you every where
like a shadow or a friend.”- Naomi Shihab Nye
