Something encouraging

You know, what's seen cannot be unseen; what's known cannot be not known. That's really the principle behind this wonderful insight:

What's encouraging about meditation is that even if we shut down, we can no longer shut down in ignorance. We see very clearly that we're closing off. That in itself begins to illuminate the darkness of ignorance.

-- Pema Chödrön
