"We're swamped with therapies, self-help books, and techniques -
what musician and activist Bob Geldof called
‘the thriving economy of psychotherapists, designer religions, and spiritual boutiques’
- which treat our lives as projects to be tweaked and fixed.
Isn't meditation (if it's anything at all) a relief from all this?
Isn't it the opposite of repairing and adjusting and striving,
and perpetually wanting things to be different?"
"The Self cannot be the outcome of any evolutionary movement."
