"When we have no hope, our mind quiets. As long as we have hope, our mind is trying to figure out how to fulfill those wonderful things that we want to happen to us, or trying to protect ourselves from all the terrible things that shouldn't happen. And so the mind is anything but quiet." --Joko BeckSaturday Zen: Sat Sep 8, 10:00 - 11:45am
