This is the spiritual path

To stay with that shakiness–to stay with a broken heart, with a rumbling stomach, with the feeling of hopelesness and wanting revenge–that is the path of true awakening. Sticking with uncertainty, getting the knack of relaxing in the midst of chaos, learning not to panic-this is the spiritual path. Getting the knack of catching ourselves, compassionately catching ourselves, is the path of the warrior.–Pema Chodron
