We should come to see our lives as a teaching that's immediate and relevant. How automatic is it for us to imagine a kind of calmness or quietness as a picture of how things are supposed to be, and see everything else in us as a deviation. For Joko practice was nothing at all but presence. And our resistence to presence. And being present to our resistence. We're not trying to cut out resistence, rather make that resistence what we are present to, what we are allowed to have. "That too is it. Each moment, life as it is, the only teacher." Will you recognize that teacher when she shows up?
