Who you are is enough

New-Zealand1

Who you are, right now, sad or happy, is enough; it is the truth.

 

“So the real experience, beyond the dream world, is the beauty and color and excitement of the real experience of now in everyday life. When we face things as they are, we give up the hope of something better. There will be no magic, because we cannot tell ourselves to get out of our depression. Depression and ignorance, the emotions, whatever we experience, are all real and contain tremendous truth. If we really want to learn and see the experience of truth, we have to be where we are. The whole thing is just a matter of being a grain of sand.”

 

–Chogyam Trungpa, from Cutting Through Spiritual Materialism
