Greenwayofliving the way : The myth of liberty and the path of meditation by Chögyam Trungpa

Or the path of the green warrior may I say . … How are you doing these days? Not so good, not that bad. I’m surviving the pain of being alive each day as well as I can and it is not always easy.

If most of us were honest that the answer they will five that question . Others will claim that they are happy . Very few will be sincere . Each one of us is just doing his , her best .

The fact is that what we have in common is our personal amount of fears, frustrations, deceptions and irritations, those parts of our lives that are often shameful and never that funny …

Our modern way of living enlightens harmony, felicity. We see the world as a place dedicated to entertain ourselves.

The thing is that before we reach these pleasant aspects of life we have no other choices than to experiencing life with it’s whole pain, just the way it is : we must face the reality of our own suffering , our own emptiness , the reality of illness, the reality of loneliness, the reality of our vanity …. Life is not a wonderland and the matter is a really really serious one .
