The path is a personal experience, and one should take delight in those little things that go on in our lives, the obstacles, seductions, paranoias, depressions, and openness. All kinds of things happen, and that is the content of the journey, which is extremely powerful and important. Without those problems, we cannot tread on the path. We should feel grateful that we are not sterile, completely cleaned out, that the world has not been overtaken by some computerized system*. There is still room for rawness and ruggedness all over the place.
~ Chogyam Trungpa, The Path is the Goal.
