“As in mindfulness practice, each moment of practicing awakened awareness offers a choice-point:
Do I allow myself to become distracted and get seduced back into the drama?
Or do I choose the openness, clarity, disidentification, and freedom that I discovered but keep forgetting?”
― Stephan Bodian
“Ultimately, your every desire—the desire for material things, relationships, career success, sexual gratification—is really the desire for the peace you experience for brief moments when you attain the object of your desire.”
― Stephan Bodian,
