Reason #487 Why I'm Glad I Don't Live in NYC

It makes me happy to think I don't know anyone who would ever, ever say things like this:

"Mindfulness is supposed to bring people together. By embracing your essential humanness, getting in touch with and accepting your body, sensations, emotions and thoughts, you are supposed to join with, and empathetically connect to, all humanity... 'One thing I like to do is send my silent good wishes to people all over the world who have problems exactly like my own. Contexts may change, but emotions are universal.'”

From the New York Times, of course.
