Waking up is the goal, bewilderment is the method. – Martha Beck

‘Meta-self. darling. Meta meaning beyond. Something other than the body you think is you. Your meat-self – your physical body – is as helpless without its meta-self as that deer who so kindly fed you the other day. Call the meta-self your soul, your angel, the Force, the intelligence of Nature, the ghost in the machine. Call it whatever you want, but learn to use it.’
