“If we fear that we will be destroyed by our emotions, we will never look at them long enough to receive the messages they are bringing us. Our emotions are not given to destroy us; channeled wisely, they empower us. True mastery of living does not mean squelching our feelings. To the contrary, it means bringing our life into harmony with all the forces that move within us, and coming to peace with who we are. We cannot discover and express who we are as long as we are denying a part of ourself. Emotions are not dissipated by denying them; they are amplified. What you run away from, runs you. What you face, you master. This is the path to enlightenment.”
Alan Cohen, in “Dare to Be Yourself”
