“If our love for life remains conditional, based upon us getting our own way or life looking the way we want it to, we remain defended against the slap of life’s ruthless uncertainty.
The degree to which our hearts are guarded and armored against life’s horrors is the exact degree to which we are also closed to its brilliant love, beauty, and joy.”
“If we learn how to consciously meet our suffering, then even our suffering is the precise medicine needed to bring us deeper home to life and to love. ”
“As we learn to open wider to the depth of grief that is here for us—personally, collectively, and globally—we can allow the honest inclusion of our brokenness to bring us home to what’s unbreakable. ”
