The journey of a 1000 miles begins with a single step

Most of us don’t want to be in touch with ourselves

 

 

 

 

In modern society
most of us don’t want to be in touch with ourselves;
we want to be in touch with other things
like religion, sports, politics, a book –
we want to forget ourselves.

Anytime we have leisure,
we want to invite something else to enter us,
opening ourselves to the television
and telling the television to come and colonize us.
~~ Thich Nhat Hanh – Being Peace
