Suffering Transforms Us - Karlfried van Durkheim

The person who, being really on the Way, falls upon

hard times in the world, will not, as a consequence,

turn to that friend who offers her refuge and comfort

and encourages their old self to survive.

Rather, she will seek out someone who will faithfully and

inexorably help her to risk herself, so that she may endure

the difficulty and pass courageously through it.

Only to the extent that a person exposes herself over

and over again to annihilation, can that which is

indestructible be found within them.

In this daring lies the dignity and

the spirit of true awakening.

~ Karlfried van Durkheim
