The Spiritual Path

To stay with that shakiness—
to stay with a broken heart,
with a rumbling stomach,
with the feeling of hopelessness
and wanting to get revenge—
that is the path of true awakening.

Sticking with that uncertainty,
getting the knack of relaxing in the midst of chaos,
learning not to panic—
this is the spiritual path.
~Pema Chodron
