  • “Sometimes people hold a core belief that is very strong. When they are
    presented with evidence that works against that belief, the new
    evidence cannot be accepted. It would create a feeling that is
    extremely uncomfortable, called cognitive dissonance. And because it
    is so important to protect the core belief, they will rationalize,
    ignore and even deny anything that doesn't fit in with the core belief.”
    ― Frantz Fanon,

                      • "The reason the Buddha taught the jhana was to make you feel inadequate, to make you think that you are no good, and that by only getting to something as far away and as unattainable could you do anything worthwhile with your life." --- Life of Pleasure (Jhana) by Bhante Sujato --- of course, this is a joke. The interpretation of this attention-grabbing introductory statement to the talk is the same as Ajahn Brahm's famous quote:

                        "This is good enough."
