If the world’s wisdom traditions have anything in common, if there is a truth that seems to cross methodology, it is this: stick to something. Say yes to one thing, one way, in particular. This means you must mostly say no to everything else. The hard truth of the truths we’re told is that discomfort and fulfillment lie side by side, entwined with scary and sometimes lonely inner work. Like religion, art is as much as anything else about the long haul.
