The journey of a 1000 miles begins with a single step

Knowing our darkness

“Only when we know our own darkness well can we be present with the darkness of others. Compassion becomes real when we recognize our shared humanity. If we learn to open our hearts, anyone, including the people who drive us crazy, can be our teacher.”
― Pema Chödrön
