    When I got home from class tonight, my housemate read me this quote, which seemed apt:

    “As awakening increases we see ourselves to be worse than we thought. We are amazed at our former blindness as we see issuing forth from the depths of our hearts a whole swarm of shameful thoughts and feelings. We could never have believed that we had harbored such things, and we stand aghast as we watch them gradually appear. But we must neither be amazed nor disheartened. We are not worse than we were, on the contrary, we are better. But while our faults diminish, the light by which we see them waxes brighter and we are filled with horror. Bear in mind for your comfort, that we only perceive our Melody when the cure begins.”

    – Francois Fénélon’s
