Reb Anderson

‘You actually are a person. You do actually depend on everybody else. The one thing you don’t depend on in this whole universe is yourself, but you depend on everything else, and everything else has power in your life. That’s who you really are, and our practice is to be that person. Our practice is to be that unpredictable, unreliable, undependable, impermanent, other-dependent, inconceivably beautiful person. Everybody is, moreover, the same inconceivably beautiful person. In order to be ourselves, we must understand that, and we must understand that we cannot do it on our own. Because, in fact, everybody is helping us be who we are.’ (The Third Turning of the Wheel)
