Being a grain of sand ~ Chögyam Trungpa

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. Depression and ignorance, the emotions, whatever we experience, are all real and contain tremendous truth. If we really want to experience the truth, we have to be where we are. It is just a matter of being a grain of sand.
