Sacred Path

Chögyam Trungpa, Shambala: The Sacred Path of the Warrior, 1984, p, 79.

“…letting go is more than just relaxation. It is relaxation based on being in tune with the environment, the world. One of the important principles of letting go is living in the challenge. But this does not mean living with a constant crisis. For the warrior, every moment is a challenge to be genuine, and each challenge is delightful. When you let go properly, you can relax and enjoy the challenge.”
