We should begin our practice at the spot where we feel the most discomfort. Where we feel offended or provoked is exactly where we can watch our emotions give rise to our state of mind.
If we can catch ourselves trying to hold onto our solidity in the form of opinions and ideas then we can understand where this samskaric cycle comes from.
This slogan is brilliantly summarized by Chogyam Rungpa in his Lojong text Training the mind :
“Always meditate on that which is most difficult. If you do not start right away, the moment difficulty arises, it is very hard to overcome it.”
