Sometimes I will invite a client to stand at the window of my office and watch the movement of traffic in the street below. We are not interested in where these vehicles have come from or who is driving them. We are just watching. Later on, the client can apply the same divine disinterest to the movement of his thoughts. Thoughts can survive anything except our indifference. Indifference is what purifies the mind.
To restore and rejuvenate, inculcate new habits.
We can cope with anything that happens. The difficulty, anyway, is not what happens but that we are unaware of our assets.
For as long as we thrive on competition, we thrive on violence.
What did school teach me? How to fear failure. How to conform.
Education is derived from the word for “drawing out.”
