Chogyam Trungpa: The Sacred Path of the Warrior

The challenge of warriorship is to live fully in the world as it is and to find within this world, with all its paradoxes, the essence of nowness. If we open our eyes, if we open our minds, if we open our hearts, we will find that this world is a magical place. It is not magical because it tricks us or changes unexpectedly, but it is magical because it can be so vividly, so brilliantly. There is some principle of magic in everything, some living quality. Something living, something real is taking place in everything. When we see things as they are, they make sense to us: the way the leaves move when they are blown by the wind, the way the rocks get wet when there are snowflakes sitting on them. We see things display their harmony and their chaos at the same time. We are never limited by beauty alone, but we appreciate all sides of reality properly…. The warrior’s decorum is this natural togetherness and calm, which comes from a feeling of being in harmony with yourself and with the environment. You don’t have to try to fit yourself into situations, but situations fit naturally… You realize you can live with nature, as it is, and as you are. You feel a sense of ease, of looseness. You feel at home in your world.”
