Spiritual Pizza

August 12, 2009

People have different experiences of reality, which cannot be jumbled together. Invaders and dictators of all kinds have tried to make others have their experience, to make a big concoction of minds controlled by one person. But that is impossible. Everyone who has tried to make that kind of spiritual pizza has failed. So you have to accept that your experience is personal. The personal experience of nowness is very much there and very obviously there. You cannot even throw it away!

From "The Four Foundations of Mindfulness," in The Sanity We Are Born With: A Buddhist Approach to Psychology, page 37.
