A quote from “Revelation” by Haven Kimmel in Killing the Buddha, ed. Peter Manseau and Jeff Sharlet (NY, Free Press, 2004).
Stay inside your skin and figure it out. We urge this upon you in your sleep. Be radically negative: not this, not this, not this. The Kingdom is not your clan, your country, your meetinghouse. The Conflict is not your government, your enemies, your struggle with entropy and degeneration. Use your history only as metaphor, koan, or parable.
