If the world collapses on you

“It's a kind of test, which spiritual warriors need to awaken their hearts.” We all go through times when the world seems to collapse on us and conspire against our serenity. Precisely in those moments, Pema Chödrön teaches us, we can find our truest nature and, accepting our limitations, be reborn like Phoenicians from the ashes of what we thought we feared. “When we lack the ground under our feet and cannot find anything to hold onto, we suffer a lot. [.] It might sound romantic as a concept, but when the truth nails us, we really suffer. We look in the bathroom mirror, and there we are, with our pimples, our aging face, our lack of kindness, our aggression and our shyness - all that stuff. And this is where tenderness comes in. When everything wobbles and nothing works, we may realize that we are on the verge of something. We may realize that we are in a very vulnerable and tender place, and that tenderness can take different directions. We can close ourselves and act offended, or we can try to touch this palpitating quality. There is certainly something tender and throbbing in feeling the earth fail under your feet. It is a kind of test, which spiritual warriors need to awaken their hearts. Sometimes it is because of the malattia or death that we find ourselves in this place. " Author: Pema Chodron
