Somewhere in this process you will come face-to-face with the sudden and shocking realization that
you are completely crazy.
Your mind is a shrieking gibbering madhouse on wheels barreling pell-mell down the hill, utterly out of control and hopeless. No problem. You are not crazier than you were yesterday. It has always been this way and you just never noticed. You are also no crazier than everybody else around you. The only real difference is that you have confronted the situation they have not.
Some Friday morning introspection from Buddhist monk Bhante Henepola Gunaratana.
