Read it all.
I ran into some of my meditating friends. "How can you spend your day sitting around like a lotus? There is shwarma to be eaten."
"We're into connecting to a higher reality."
"So am I. It's called shwarma."
I'd found it. I'd thought that in order to experience spirituality I had to do something "spiritual." I was wrong. True transcendence isn't about slipping off into an artificial world. It's about finding spirituality in the here-and-now.
Sometimes a person may need to take time-out to think about things, to meditate. Most of the time he just needs to eat something greasy.
