"...Until we turn and face what we've spent our whole lives avoiding, what are we really doing with our lives? Practice is not some pretty thing we do just on a meditation cushion. Until we learn to observe ourselves objectively, we will remain prisoners of our substitute life. Yet as we live the practice life, looking with increasing honesty at all the ways that we've held ourselves back in fear, we can also begin to experience the freedom of stepping outside our protected room and into the genuine life that awaits us..."
