You are human, and it’s okay to act like one

“Jesus never taught that freedom was an escape from the volatility of the human experience. He embraced the human journey the way it was, just as it was. Sometimes life hurts. This is life. This is our life. And our relation to life involves losing it too. You don’t get beyond these things, and enlightenment is not being unaffected by them. You are human, and it’s okay to act life one… feel like one.”

– Jim Palmer, Notes from (Over) the Edge: Unmasking the Truth to End Your suffering
