One insult after the other


A genuine spiritual path does not avoid
difficulties or mistakes but leads us
to the art of making mistakes wakefully,
bringing them to the transformative
power of our heart…
When we set out to love, to awaken,
to become free, we are inevitably confrontedvu
with our own limitations…
As we look into ourselves we see more clearly
our unexamined conflicts and fears,
our frailties and confusion…
To witness this can be difficult.
Lama Trungpa Rinpoche described
spiritual progress from the ego’s point of view
as, “One insult after another.”…

— Jack Kornfield, (A Path With Heart)
