  4. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    Dancing with your demons empowers you, and surely enables you to reclaim your lost powers.

That’s exactly what Buddha did, while seeking Enlightenment under Bodhi tree, after realizing that fighting his demons off was getting nowhere. You must develop courage to face your demons, such as anger, fear, greed, guilt, jealousy, lack of self-esteem, undue pride, and anything that is stopping you from reaching Perfection. You must bravely enter the territory that many fear to tread. Dance with your demons, and by God’s grace you will succeed.
