The hard lesson seems to be that life cannot be reduced. We may look for happiness in some tiny fragment of life, yet this very process is misguided & leads to suffering. Our fulfillment is the ENTIRETY of life - the "full catastrophe" - the entire process of living to be embraced as a whole. Likewise, the goal we seek by sitting in meditation IS our state of being in the process of sitting meditation. This same all-embracing wholehearted process is to be lived on & off the cushion. We transform our life, not by a pill or some trick, but ........ BY TRANSFORMING OUR LIFE.
