The places that scare us….

To quote Charlotte Joko Beck:

“The “secret” of life that we are all looking for is just this: to develop through sitting and in daily life practice the power and courage to return to that which we have spent a lifetime hiding from, to rest in the bodily experience of the present moment – even if it is a feeling of being humiliated, of failing, of abandonment, of unfairness.”

So by sitting, she is referring to meditation. And the rest is self explanatory, and I couldn’t have put it better myself.

Wise words…..following those words is another story than understanding the meaning behind them. But we can all just practice one day at a time right!?
