    1. p.19 – Meanwhile, paradox can point to a radical clarity. My hope is that this book will help you see that with paradox comes a kind of clarity that is more accurate, more true, more clear than clear, than what we usually accept at face value. p.209 – Everything is beautiful and, simultaneously, everything is already broken. This is the truth of impermanence. We don’t like to look at the world in this way. We want to hold on to and protect everything we love, and to discard or turn away fr [...]
