“There’s a reason that you can learn from everything: You have basic wisdom, basic intelligence and basic goodness. Therefore, if the environment is supportive and encourages you to be brave and to open your heart and mind, you’ll find yourself opening to the wisdom and compassion that’s inherently there….It’s the willingness to open your eyes, your heart and your mind to allow situations in your life to become your teacher. With awareness, you are able to find out for yourself what causes misery and what causes happiness.”
