Sooner or later

Sooner or later, when we surrender to what we cannot control, we have to hold still & let the (inner) demons we have been running from catch up to us. There is no greater terror. But there can be no greater liberation than to face those demons held in the arms of our own compassionate nature and that which is larger than ourselves.
– Oriah Mountain Dreamer

I can see where it fits my experience, and I also see some potentially stressful thoughts to question in this quote:

I have to hold still. It’s an inner demon. There is no greater terror. It’s terror. It’s fear.

There is no greater liberation. It’s liberation.

What’s true in my experience is true for others / everyone else. (She used “we” instead of I.)
