A Quote For Wednesday Night

Quote for the day, something to take into your mind and leave there, until it gives up the truth it holds for you, at this time in your particular life.

" …every disturbance, whether resolved or not, is making space for an inner engagement.  As a shovel digs up and displaces earth, in a way that must seem violent to the earth, an interior space is revealed for the digging. In just this way, when experience opens us, it often feels violent and the urge, quite naturally, is to refill the opening, to make it the way it was.  But every experience excavates a depth, which reveals its wisdom once opened to air. ……We add to our suffering when life changes and we still behave as if it hasn't. 
…..That's the challenge as we meet life's changes: not to let the injury or limitation of one thing injure or limit all things. Not to let the opening of a new depth be filled before it reveals its secrets and its gifts."
