"One thing I have learned about this method, contemplative cooking, is that if you want to make anything from scratch, including your own peace of mind, you must, as Sagan advised, first invent a universe where that is possible for yourself. Where there is enough room to breathe into a more peaceful, easy, loving, and potentially wise version of yourself."

“When you find yourself in conflict, do you care more about being right or being happy? Can you step down off your pedestal long enough to acknowledge that being right might not matter if it only prolongs suffering?”
