"You do not need to know precisely what is happening, or exactly where it is going. What you need is to recognize the possibilities and challenges offered by the present moment and embrace them with courage, faith and hope."
~ Thomas Merton
"The paradox of our practice is that the most effective way of transformation, is to leave ourselves alone. The more we let everything be just what it is, the more we relax into an open, attentive awareness of one moment after another."
~ Barry Magid, Leave Yourself Alone
