First things first: We are never angry, aggrieved, upset or resentful for the reason we think. We can start there—but not linger. My job is not to pad and protect the ego.

Accretion is an unconscious process whereby we add more and more layers to ourselves. It can happen that an encounter with subtraction wakes us up. Then, finally, we begin to divest. To give.
