A few years ago, while going through a difficult transition in my life, I came across the following quote from Pema Chodron, “Only to the extent that we expose ourselves over and over to annihilation can that which is indestructible in us be found.” What??!! You mean, I am supposed to put myself in harm’s way? You mean this hurt I am feeling to the depth of my soul is helping me, guiding me, to a deeper place within myself? I had to immediately stop reading, highlight the quote, send to a friend saying, damn….right?….damn. Needless to say, it gave me a hard pause, perhaps even a hard stop. What was Pema saying anyways? Should I be throwing all caution to the wind, live with my heart wide open, allow whatever shows up to be there? Well my friends, I think so.
