Breaking Open

“When we come close to those things that break us down, we touch those things that also break us open. And in that breaking open, we uncover our true nature.” ~Wayne Muller (Source: tinybuddha)

I agree with this quote, though I’d add: “…but sometimes there is great pain and disappointment along the way. Rarely do great breakthroughs occur without a price.”
