"Truth makes little sense and has no real impact if it is merely a collection of abstract ideas. Truth that is living experience, on the other hand, is challenging, threatening, and transformative. The first kind of truth consists of information collected and added, from a safe distance, toward mental inventory. The second kind involves risking our familiar and coherent interputation of the world – it is an act of surrender, of complete and embodied cognition that is seen, feeling, intuiting, and comprehending all at once. Living truth leads us ever more deeply into the unknown territory of what our life is."
-- indestructible truth, the living spirituality of Tibetan Buddhism, Reginald A. Ray
