the price of freedom

A good spiritual encouragement attributed to feminist and political activist Gloria Steinem:
The truth will set you free
but first it will piss you off.
I choose to infer from that what I think is true: If spiritual endeavor hasn't pissed you off, you are still dithering in the virtuous shallows.


  1. It occurred to me long ago that if you were going to undertake zen practice, you had to be willing to consider that everything you'd ever thought was true might be wrong.

  2. ... or, more confounding yet, might be right.
