Growing Up is Embarrassing!
"Growing humility" is a serious understatement! Long-term meditation practice is best described in the words of Shunryu Suzuki Sensei: "one embarrassment after another!" As our protective defenses, pretenses & avoidances are lowered & shed, we perceive ourselves with increasing clarity - WOW, what a SURPRISE! We're ORDINARY MORTAL SLOBS! No wonder a lot of us refuse to grow up!!!!
