People often think that in their practice they will be going along and just feel miserable and then one day something will spontaneously emerge through them and they will miraculously be full of joy. But often it is that in their struggle, they maybe hit rock bottom, and in a most creative shift, discover, even in the tiniest way, how to interact with reality in a different way. And that different way of interacting with all of life then begins a process of transformation and liberation which eventually blossoms or ripens into a radical change of perspective.
