Courage and respect

Oh, isn't this both very wonderful and very true? It's by Pema Chödrön:
"The most fundamental aggression to ourselves, the most fundamental harm we can do to ourselves, is to remain ignorant by not having the courage and the respect to look at ourselves honestly and gently."
We often think we're protecting ourselves by refusing to look within. Actually, just the opposite is the case.
