"'Stopping the world' is stopping the world of beliefs, the world of desires, the world of anger, the world of hatred. If we can stop this world of our own creating even for a moment, my experience is that we will lighten up a little. It will be more possible for us to be flexible. To be generous. To be kind. To be less reactive of others whom we don’t agree with. Because fundamentally we are all just people. There’s not really that much difference between us. Those divisions and differences are generated by the mind."
