“ A great philosopher-prince named Shotoko Taishi lived in Japan at the turn of the sixth-century. He taught, among other things, that we must do psychic work in both inner and outer worlds. But even more so, he taught tolerance for every human, every creature, and every emotion.
The balanced valuing of emotion is certainly an act of self-respect. Even raw and messy emotions can be understood as a form of light cracking and bursting with energy.
It is at this critical point that we call the healer, our wisest self, our best resource for seeing beyond the ego, irritation and aggravation. The healer is always the “far-seer”.
She is the one who can tell us what good can come from this emotive surge.”
