Words of Wisdom: The Fear of Change

“If you’re on a spiritual journey, something inside you wants the truth. When your spirit starts to grow as a result of spiritual practice, it fights with the ego until you say:

‘I have to change; I want to change.’

Then, you change. You open the door from the inside. There might still be fear because you think that if you open the door, there won’t be anyone there to help you. That’s okay, open the door anyway.”
