Deep Understanding

No one faces your past for you

or makes your choices for you.

It is not always easy—

but if what we really want

is deep understanding,

we have to go there,

into our own struggle.

No one can reveal my heart

to myself but myself.

~Sallie Jiko Tisdale

(1957 to pres., author, editor, Buddhist teacher)
