"But, with all your studies, remember this: One minute of experiencing the free flow of life for yourself is worth a thousand hours with books and lectures. You don't want to read the menu; you want to taste the dinner. Knowledge is needed, yes, but let it be the gateway to spaciousness."

 "Life is the dancer and you are the dance." ~ Eckhart Tolle
