"Living this life is what we're here for. We took a wrong turn because we got scared to death of this life early on, and turned away from it. We looked for escape from it, and we looked for a way to transform it so all of its sharpness and confusion would go away. We try to go back to sleep. We try to return to the womb. And that's what we've been doing for 5,000 years. What we have discovered with this looking is that the desire to escape from life goes away. Not instantaneously, but it goes away. And over time, the personal consciousness shapes and conforms and fits itself into the actual healthy relationship with life as it unfolds that it was intended to have from the beginning. It's only the accidental infection with the fear of life that has caused us to run around looking for other things." John Sherman
