“You just have to be very honest about your predicament. You can’t be phony. Phony holy isn’t going to get us there. In other words, you don’t go dramatically changing everything once you get a new value in your head, because you’re doing it with a certain kind of attachment of mind that’s going to cause you to have a reaction to it anyway. So don’t get voluntary- simple too soon. Let it be something that naturally falls away rather than you ripping it away.”

~ Ram Dass
