We need a bit more warning about what it feels like when the wall starts tumbling down. We need to be told that fear and trembling accompany growing up and that letting go takes courage. Finding the courage to go to places that scare us cannot happen without compassionate inquiry into the workings of ego. So we ask ourselves, “What do I do when I feel I can’t handle what’s going on? Where do I look for strength and in what do I place my trust?
