Sobriety is based in knowing "what to accept and what to reject." As Chogyam Trungpa says,  "Through the practice of sitting still and following your breath as it goes out and dissolves, you are connecting with your heart. By simply letting yourself be, as you are, you develop sympathy towards yourself. From this ground of genuine heart we can appreciate our life and look at our state of mind directly and fearlessly." - CTR from  Shambhala the Path of the Warrior.
