"être bien dans sa peau"

"Gradually, as you remain open and mindful, and use a technique to focus your mind more and more, your negativity will slowly be defused; you begin to feel well in your own skin, or, as the French say,être bien dans sa peau (“well in your own skin”). From this comes release and a profound ease. I think of this practice as the most effective form of therapy and self-healing."
--Sogyal Rinpoche

Žižek practices by watching cars in the street, to alleviate his heart condition. He focuses on the cars driving below the window, when he gets distracted, he refocuses...


Yes folks that's right. He meditates... But I'm not sure he realizes that's exactly what he's doing...


The thing is, being calm is better than dying. Even a Hegelian can see that :)
