“When we question openly, our spiritual practice becomes a living experience, without dogma or fixed ideas.”
What does it mean to trust anyone, especially a spiritual teacher? What do we do when a teacher doesn’t present him\herself in a way that is comfortable for us? I don’t see how it is possible to skip over questions like these.
The purpose of meditation is to develop a sane relationship to experience. The struggles we have in life—shutting down, pushing away, feeling overwhelmed, and all the neurotic attach- ment—arise from the confusion we harbor about how to relate to the rich energy of the mind.
