"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 transforming. the first kind of truth consists of information collected and added, from a safe distance, to our mental inventory. the second kind…is an act of surrender, of complete and embodied cognition that is seeing, feeling, intuiting, and comprehending all at once. living truth leads us ever more deeply into the unknown territory of what our life is."
