One doesn't become a student by simply reading a book or listening to a lecture. One must come with an open mind, with complete dedication to understanding the idea being taught, without judgment or fear. Before doing so, one must ensure that the teacher and content are coming from a safe place which doesn't contradict their values and beliefs.
When we remind ourselves of the light that lies on the other side of this experience, we remind ourselves not to run away. We remind ourselves to work through.
