Crisis = Danger + Opportunity

What wisdom is in the fact that a word that means “crisis” is comprised of the words for both “danger” + “opportunity”?!  I can say that after going through the largest crisis of my life in 2011 that there was both danger, especially in losing hope and faith, as well as opportunity to both immensely grow and to shake off worthless fears.  In crisis we always look first to the danger, but in Buddhist teachings there is a saying in the gosho: “Great good always follow great evil.”  So, weather the storm with strength…there is more beyond this hurdle!  xoxo Dana
