"Difficulty and obstacles, if properly understood and used, can often turn out to be an unexpected source of strength. In the biographies of the masters, you will often find that had they not experienced difficult circumstances they would not have discovered the strength they needed to rise above them."- Sogyal Riponche
It means that we learn to sit in the midst of turbulence and make room for all that we are experiencing. This goes against our natural tendency to be aversive to anxiety, fear, sadness, grief or the "unpleasant" range of feelings, yet when we bring a kind presence to our suffering we find our true healing, wisdom and strength. When we hold all that we are feeling in a field of loving awareness we learn the true vastness of our heart.
