Nothing ever goes away until it has taught us what we need to know

Nothing ever goes away until it has taught us what we need to know
Report More From: Life

"...nothing ever goes away until it has taught us what we need to know… If we run a hundred miles an hour to the other end of the continent in order to get away from the obstacle, we find the very same problem waiting for us when we arrive. it just keeps returning with new names, forms, manifestations until we learn whatever it has to teach us about where we are separating ourselves from reality, how we are pulling back instead of opening up, closing down instead of allowing ourselves to experience fully whatever we encounter, without hesitating or retreating into ourselves."

-Pema Chodron
