First awakening experience at the age of sixteen.
"You can’t force the heart to open. It can only open by itself, like a flower. Your heart may feel restricted; even someone with a great deal of presence and openness can still have a heart that feels restricted. So you bring that presence, that awareness that is open, to the heart that isn’t. That’s all. You approach what’s limited with what’s vast, and open-heartedness happens by itself. That’s really what finishes the cycle of karma."
"Intention is probably important, but ultimately I think it’s really a non-choice. In other words, suffering simply becomes unacceptable. You’re just not willing to suffer anymore—even though you do! This is different than wanting to be comfortable; wanting to be comfortable avoids pain, seeks pleasure. Wanting to be free, on the other hand, dives in through the pain."
