To endure great discomfort in the search for personal discovery? How do we transform ‘suffering’ into the decision to stay totally present?

Choose it. Don’t waste a moment of real feeling, of pain or discomfort, for while you sit with them they open whole worlds for you. Save your edge experiences for when you feel fully prepared to suck the marrow out of them. Otherwise, why bother? People suffer all the time. You don’t get a medal for it. But when you feel ready to do something else than simply suffer, then we’ve got something to work with.

Let’s practice together.
