These days I want nothing more than to enter an empty room with a group of strangers and sit still and quiet in samadhi, nondistracted awareness, for the better part of a day. I am always astonished by the presence of people who would dare to do such a thing - burn perfectly good daylight to get nothing done....We have the power to transform everything when we have the courage to do nothing.
