The Journey

The journey is the goal, the goal is the journey. Must we ultimately travel it alone?

Interesting question :popcorn:

I would say we are never alone in the way we think we are but ultimately the responsibility for what is happening in and with our so-called mind is out choice a l o n e .

Everyday problems teach us to have a realistic attitude.
They teach us that life is what life is; flawed.
Yet with tremendous potential for joy and fulfillment.
~Lama Surya Das~

If your path teaches you to act and exert yourself correctly and leads to spiritual realizations such as love, compassion and wisdom then obviously it's worthwhile.
~Lama Thubten Yeshe~

One whose mind is freed does not argue with anyone, he does not dispute with anyone. He makes use of the conventional terms of the world without clinging to them
~The Buddha~
