“… all of a sudden a vision of life that you hadn’t known opens. But more often, one undertakes a practice, a training, a discipline to open the small sense of self, the ‘body of fear’ it’s called, this limited identity, and begin to sense something else that’s possible. And it can be as simple as beginning to sit in meditation and beginning to see the insanity of your own thought stream.”
