Quote of the day: INITIATION

December 4, 2015


Initiation is a lot about knocking on pain’s door and introducing yourself so that when it shows up later, unannounced, you’re not shocked, insulted and unable to cope. If you don’t consciously engage in rituals of initiation, don’t worry — life will bring you pain, and when it does it’s good to recognize your experience as initiatory. Courage is not letting fear of pain overwhelm you. Wisdom (adulthood) is knowing that pain is coming.
