At some point in your spiritual exploration, you return home.
The home you never really left.
There, you might find all sorts of feelings and emotions that get stirred up, triggered by a life events.
At that point, the exploration takes on a different meaning, a deeper dimension … That of opening up, relaxing in the midst of the heat.
Rather than engaging in the old habits of avoiding feelings and emotions, they can be approached in stillness and presence, without interference, without trying to fix anything, without taking personal refuge in old habits.
