There is no greater strength than knowing that everything life brings to you is for you as well. And as this wondrous fact grows clear to you, old enemies either vanish or they're transformed into your allies. Precious energies once wasted in futile self-defense are turned into new powers for further self-exploration.
If we refuse to see what life is trying to reveal to us about ourselves, then we can't learn. If we don’t uncover the truth of our own nature, then higher self-knowledge becomes impossible. And without awakening this new order of self-knowledge, there is no way to illuminate, let alone eliminate the fears that live in the shadows of a mind that still lives in the dark.
