“I’m less of a basket-case/unchecked missile when I sit regularly. Sitting is a reliable gateway to dignity, and it tends to help us leave others to theirs. Sitting—because it doesn’t need anything from you—has no demands, no scale of better or worse, no opinions, no ideology, no resentments and no fixed concept of who you are—is hyperbolically kind. It’s radically, consistently, unfathomably, breathtakingly kind. Sitting will peel away all your brittleness and knowing. It will leave you sober and quieter and in contact with your rage, disbelief, fear and extreme weirdness. It won’t let you off the hook.” Toward a philosophy of just sitting.
