“For practitioners and spiritual warriors - people who have a certain hunger to know what is true, feelings like disappointment, embarrassment, irritation, resentment, anger, jealousy and fear, instead of being bad news, are actually very clear moments that teach us where it is that we are holding back. They teach us to perk up and lean in, when we feel we'd rather collapse and back away. They are like messengers that show us, with terrifying clarity, exactly where we're stuck.
“This very moment is the perfect teacher, and, lucky for us, it's with us wherever we are.”
