The inertia of introspection leads toward recollection, for only through memory is the past recaptured and understood. In the fact of experiencing and making the present, we are all actors. But in the lacunae--in the rare moments of sensory deprivation when experience in the present is a minimal thing, as on a long plane ride, or any indolent, self-examining trip--then memory is free to speak and call forth the landscapes of our striving in moments now past.

-Terence McKenna

...there is a path back to trust, naturalness, and receptivity. It is the path of letting go of psychological commitment to the attachments and conditioning we formed as a part of our socialization. As we let go of attachments, we regain the spontaneity of what the Taoists call the "uncarved block." As we become empty, so are we filled.

-Laurence G. Boldt
