We move at faster and faster rates toward more ephemeral goals. People are beginning to understand that this myth of progress is pushing us toward going faster and faster and faster and faster so that we don’t have lives anymore. And you ask yourself the question, well, how can there be any heroic inner journey in a culture that doesn’t allow you to slow down for more than eight seconds?

There is an inherent significance by being itself. And, I think, that’s the difference between being a human being and the human “doings” that we’ve been forced to become today. That it all depends on performance. What healthy people have is [this]: their very value comes from their being, not their doing. That’s a big difference.
