We need to travel on the path of healing and wholeness. That will take time. We may start out expecting quick relief from samsaric suffering. When that is not forthcoming, we may become disappointed, resentful, or indignant. We may even rail against the Dharma or abuse it. We cannot digest the powerful medicine of the Dharma in one dose, but as we treat ourselves in a stepwise fashion, our capacity to absorb Dharma increases. Then we can take — and ought to take — more and more powerful doses. When we can do that, we soon come to see the Dharma’s true potency and its healing power. It is the most powerful medicine for counteracting dukkha.
