During difficult times we often fail to recognize our wisdom potential because we tend to focus on our pain. At these times we may even feel that faith is not a possibility for us – that it is something that people either have or don’t – not something that we can cultivate. But our instinctual longing to experience something beyond pain is nothing other than the call of our Buddha potential – the natural intelligence itself. It is important to recognize this longing and develop some trust in it. It is light coming through.
