25:31 Myron: “Even though it’s painful, you’re much better off, if you’re willing to experience the pain, be with it and let it go, because once it breaks through and is gone you’re at a whole new level.”

35:32 Myron: “I used the phrase ‘worked on that’, and the working is not really struggling and trying to make things happen. It isn’t that at all. What it is is learning to just be still, to just let everything go, just absolutely be still and let our hearts open.”

It has been many years now since you have posted these recordings of Myron (podcasts 83 & 84 too), but I just heard it for the first time this week. These recordings project Myron as such a wonderful, loving, and genuine person. Thank you so much for these recordings, they are some the most intimate and special recordings of all the salon podcasts!
