“Throughout her life, Teresa stressed the importance of beginning the journey of self-knowledge. This journey requires an ability to be very honest with oneself and a desire for self-responsibility. It means that we no longer blame others for the state of our sold, or project our old wounds onto new (or old) friends. It means we are able to acknowledge to ourselves, and speak clearly to others, the thoughts and emotions we are experiencing…We are a grand mixture of ancestral, genetic, psychological, and spiritual components. All these come to light in our daily lives, and many of them are not as attractive as we would desire.
Teresa reminded us that by acknowledging these not-so-welcome traits, we are entering into humility – the place where we understand that we are superior to none, the place we can all afford to dwell in.”
Megan Don, in “Meditations with Teresa of Avila”
