By seeing through the lies of the world that have been used to divided us, we may begin to see the true power that lies within us is a force that unites us. L.ove I.s E.very S.olution. All lies within.

Love takes off the masks that we fear we cannot live without and know we cannot live within. I use the word “love” here not merely in the personal sense but as a state of being, or a state of grace - not in the infantile American sense of being made happy but in the tough and universal sense of quest and daring and growth.

Basketball is a complex dance that requires shifting from one objective to another at lightning speed…. The secret is not thinking. That doesn’t mean being stupid; it means quieting the endless jabbering of thoughts so that your body can do what it’s been trained to do without the mind getting in the way. All of us have had flashes of this sense of oneness…. when we’re completely immersed in the moment, inseparable from what we’re doing. This kind of experience happens all the time on the basketball floor; that’s why the game is so intoxicating.
