Quote of the Week

So the practice of sitting is the practice of the Warrior, developing confidence to face whatever arises, to turn towards it and use that basic confidence in mind to let down all defences unconditionally. It’s a very brave thing to do, also a very mad thing to do, since it runs counter to all common sense notions of self-preservation. But in the final analysis you have no choice; the Warrior path of honesty and openness is the only path that is.
