Feel Your Pain

‎"Whatever you do, don’t shut off your pain; accept your pain and remain vulnerable. However desperate you become, accept your pain as it is, because it is in fact trying to hand you a priceless gift: the chance of discovering, through spiritual practice, what lies behind sorrow.
'Grief,' Rumi wrote, 'can be the garden of compassion. If you keep your heart open through everything, your pain can become your greatest ally in your life’s search for love and wisdom."

~ Sogyal Rinpoche
Tibetan Book of Living and Dying, chapter 19
