"The truth you believe in and cling to makes you unavailable to hear anything new. Make friends with that clinging. Get to know it and it will let go by itself."
~Pema Chodron - When Things Fall Apart
"When you climb up a mountain, each cleft in the face gives you a toehold that enables you to lift yourself higher. But the minute you are higher, the cleft below becomes useless or irrelevant except as a marker. The next, higher place to put your foot is what you must search for now. So it is with any truth. If we cling to it, instead of using it to gain greater enlightenment, we remain in the same place."
~Phyllis Theroux - The Journal Keeper
