"When you sit, don't expect to be noble.
When we sit with what is, even for a few
minutes, then this presence that we are
is like a mirror. We see everything. We
see what we are: our efforts to look
good, to be first, or to be last. We see
our anger, our anxiety, our pomposity,
our so-called spirituality. Real spirituality
is just being with all that. If we can really
be with who we are, Transformation occurs."
