1. "The person senses what it feels like to be free from inhibitions. At the same time he feels connected and integrated – with his body and, through his body, with his environment. He has a sense of well-being and inner peace. He gains the knowledge that the life of the body resides in its involuntary aspect. […] Unfortunately these beautiful feelings do not always hold up under the stress of daily living in our modern culture. The pace, the pressure and the philosophy of our times are antithetical to life."

Say it anyway."

In a lesser sphere, that is why many men sneer at virtue--because it makes vice uncomfortable."
Author: Fulton J. Sheen
