- She says "I've even had Druid practitioners tell me that I must repeat meditations that don't work for me, and repeat them daily because they are necessary. To question that, was, I was told, to disrespect both the teacher and the tradition." When I think of it from the outside, when I think of a religious leader telling people what they must do in order to show their respect to the leader, it seems like a situation which should inspire fleeing. But when I'm in the moment, when I've chosen to embrace a tradition, a person, I try to comply with what that tradition or person tells me I should do. I try to give them a chance. And then I get mad at them.
- She describes a spiritual experience as "an uplifting, inspiring, and positive occurrence" which may inspire "love, hope, compassion, and the like." That makes me think of a Pete Seeger concert.
