Stepping out of the cocoon ~ Chögyam Trungpa

You don’t know how to take off your suit of armor. You have no idea how to conduct yourself without the reference point of your own security. The challenge of warriorship is to step out of the cocoon, to step out into space, by being brave and at the same time gentle. You can expose your wounds and flesh, your sore points. You can be completely raw and exposed with your husband or your wife, your banker, your landlord, anyone you meet.
