It is unpleasant to get to know oneself.
We don't want to get to know the unpleasant parts of ourselves.
This is perfectly understandable.
We don't want to discover that we are greedy or nasty.
We don't want to discover that we are disgusting or meddlesome.
We don't want to discover that we are miserable.
We want to appear as optimistic, relaxed and sensible,
both to ourselves and to others.
Resistance to meditation practice
is often because we don't want to encounter
the unpleasant parts of our being.
Meditation is not about peace and harmony;
it is not about merging with the cosmic soul.
Such ideas are just bullshit.
Meditation is a method to uncover inner bullshit.
