I am not awesome. Nor am I doing awesome work. I have no research, and not a single conclusion. I cannot tell you a thing about how you should live or why. Not one thing about greater meaning or purpose. I do not preach a doctrine, a science, a language or a new way of thinking. Words — authenticity, courage, creativity, happiness, innovation, greatness, compassion, mindfulness, even Zen— these are like wax wings to a fruit fly, feathers to a cloud. What I preach is practice. A preacher without a practice is a preacher. A preacher with a practice is a human being.
