“We are so unused to emotion
that we mistake any depth of feeling
for sadness, any sense of the unknown
for fear, and any sense of peace fore boredom.
I use solitude now like a lamp to illumine corners I’ve never seen. And though I am scared at times that, after all this way, I will come up empty, I still believe that going inside and bringing whatever I find out makes all the difference. ”
—Mark Nepo, The Book of Awakening
