. . . my real interest in exploring Indian philosophy, Buddhism, yoga and Western psychology is not so much how they fit together, but how they don’t fit together. Stephen Batchelor calls this “the anarchy of the gaps.” Between the gaps of systems there is something fertile. Whenever you create a system, something gets left out. And so when two systems come together all those left-out pieces come out of the shadows because one system points out the shadow of another system. That’s why it is really good to study with different systems and different teachers, because it will always point out your shadows.
