“Spiritual disillusionment occurs in the very place where one comes to seek relief from suffering.
It occurs in a context that demands an extreme degree of trust, surrender, and self-exposure,
a context in which one has made an immense investment of oneself,
thus been deeply complicit with whatever it is that has happened
—whether or not one had a starring role in the drama.
It occurs within relationships that engender profound affection, admiration, attachment.
In sum: it occurs in the exact spot where one has laid up one’s greatest treasure.”

August 2014, I participated in storytelling with Tell Us Something in Missoula, Montana. The theme for the evening was Busted.
I told my story of being 'Busted Open', when I went out of my mind and into my heart. In the story, I speak of four things foolish to discuss.
