"We hear a lot about the pain of samsara, and we also hear about liberaton. But we don't hear much about how painful it is to go from being completely stuck to becoming unstuck. The process of becoming unstuck requires trememdous bravery, because basically we are completely changing our way of perceiving reality, like changing our DNA. We are undoing a pattern that is not just our pattern. It's the human pattern: we project onto the world a zillion possibilities of attaining resolution".
