‘For many, the spiritual paths should tend toward the invisible, the unseen. With this view it is easy to mistake a favorable blindness – not seeing skin color, gender, etc. – for seeing an invisible truth of life. We may even consider this blindness to be a higher state of being. But the wisdom in my bones says that we need this particular body, with its unique color, shape, and sex, for liberation to unfold. There is no experience of emptiness without interrelationship. In meditation the wisdom deep in my bones tells me that I do not have to fight against someone or something to gain my life. I have already been given a fully liberated life. In stillness I glimpse the freedom that is already there.’  (The Way of Tenderness)

And more.
