Unknown territory

by Christina on November 3, 2011

“It is the basic principle of spiritual life that we learn the deepest things in unknown territory. Often it is when we feel most confused inwardly and are in the midst of our greatest difficulties that something new will open. We awaken most easily to the mystery of life through our weakest side. The areas of our greatest strength, where we are the most competent and clearest, tend to keep us away from the mystery.”

– Jack Kornfield

I really needed to read that. :o)

Hope residency training isn’t stressing you out too much. Stock up on the gluten-free chocolate chip cookies! :o)
