The Dalai Lama: On introspection
Taking ourselves seriously means actually looking at how we are experiencing our life and,
if there is something unsatisfactory about it, admitting it to ourselves.
Our tension and stress do not go away by denying them or avoiding taking an honest look.
And admitting that something is amiss is not the same as complaining about it and feeling sorry for ourselves.
Nor does it imply that something is fundamentally wrong with us and
we are guilty of being a bad person because we are nervous.
and remaining non-judgmental
are essential for any healing, spiritual process.
