What we Need to Know

‘Nothing ever goes away, until it teaches us what we need to know.’ Pema Chodron

This quote speaks such a profound and complex truth. When a lesson is ours to learn, there is no escaping it. Like a fun house mirror that takes a single reflection and casts it convincingly into every conceivable direction; when a lesson is ours to learn, no matter what direction we turn, we will find it waiting.

The only way out of the fun house is to do the work…to keep confronting every single false reflection that the universe offers…until finally we meet ourselves.
