Some method of circumventing that reducing valve is necessary for each of us, because the worlds we are reduced to by our language systems, our taboos and biases, are unfit for habitation. Their smallness struggles to encompass joy, love, silence, wonder, vastness--the greatest heights of human experience.

Perhaps some are born freer from the traps of reduced awareness--but all can become freer, with patience and sincere desire.
