How can we really enjoy this life? How can we really enjoy being in our bodies? We must have the capacity to have a still and quiet mind, because the joy is there. The innocence is there. The love is there. We become too ravaged in our own insecurity, misery, and blindness to even see the truth.
Yes, thrash around if you must, gnarl and gnash your teeth like a wild animal. After enough tearing about, you will be left alone, simply alone, to rebuild the pieces of your life.
