A Very Painful Spot

December 4, 2012

Book coverSometimes one touches on a very painful spot where one is almost too shy to look into it, but somehow one still has to go through it. And by going into it, one finally achieves a real command of oneself. One gains a thorough knowledge of oneself for the first time.

From “The Manure of Experience,” in Meditation in Action, page 34.

    In three years time I went thru a divorce, my children growing and moving out (empty nest), then the untimely death of my fiance. I was so lost and I began to drink in order to just get through the day. I did not want to face the pain and loneliness. Seven months ago I decided to face that fear and seek out ways of learning. I read your pieces on line and they have made a huge difference in my life. Thank you
