Examine what challenges you

"Nothing is of itself: all things are part of another. The spiritual person sees that and walks accordingly: the fool seeks to divide and claim possession of a single element. Different people have different gifts precisely so as to have the capacity and the privilege to trust each other. Imagine the effect knowing everything would have on an un-spiritually-prepared person?
"Remember always to show respect to all people and viewpoints — especially those you hate. They will probably have a deeper message for you than those you can readily accept. Examine what challenges you: absorb what disturbs you so that you can balance your experience. Enter your enemy’s experience; perhaps s/he'll no longer be your enemy?"
