“All relaxation does is allow the truth to be felt. The mind is cleared, like a dirty window wiped clean, and the magnitude of what we might ordinarily take for granted inspires tears.”
Jay Michaelson, Evolving Dharma: Meditation, Buddhism, and the Next Generation of Enlightenment

“There’s no path to liberation that doesn’t pass through the shadow.”
Jay Michaelson, Evolving Dharma: Meditation, Buddhism, and the Next Generation of Enlightenment

“We are animals descended from five billion years of wanting, striving, and seeking. And life just doesn’t cooperate. So we suffer. And so the solution to that problem is to upgrade our minds, in a distinctly ‘unnatural’ way, so that the mind clings less and lets go more.”
Jay Michaelson, Evolving Dharma: Meditation, Buddhism, and the Next Generation of Enlightenment
