The Most Prevalent Needs

“These situations of imagining things we fear, of being trapped by what we feel others will not like about us; of being frightened of dying, ¬†of twisting the nature of who we really are in an attempt to get love or acceptance; being imprisoned by what we are convinced is true about life and the world; denying pain and our own feelings; the awful fight some of us have with our basic drives such as hunger, sex and our need for love, are more prevalent evils than gunmen, terrorism or social upheaval.

What we believe or imagine about who we are, or what we are not, is for many people an incredibly potent torturer and jailer.”

~ Tony Crisp, Martial Art of the Mind
