"Your brain wants to occupy you with yourself, keep you preoccupied all of the time with this and that," she said. "Your brain is not taught to remember where you came from and where you are going to, and the fact that death is going to happen to all of us. We have this programming not to go there. Then it gets blown open and it’s scary.
"In that moment you can choose to try to recreate all those walls and veils and try to go back to where you were or you can stand in the nakedness and ask to move through the loss to be shown what is behind the veil. It is amazing how quickly your brain tries to recreate your reality when there is so much pain and suffering. Or you can just stand naked and be blown open. Then you find more loving compassion than you could ever imagine."
