When you train yourself to repeatedly do what is in your genuine best interest — not in your ego’s best interest, not in other people’s best interest — that is when you heal. You become different because in a thousand ways, over a thousand minutes, days and hours, you choose differently.
Instead of worrying I am being tricked by a medicine you take once and then are magically healed by, I can consider that gardens require maintenance. Fallible human beings require maintenance. There is weeding and watering to be done every day and there’s never a point where you are done working and your garden suddenly takes care of itself. – Chrissy Stockton
