Difficulties Are Precious

Nisargadhatta Maharaj
"Adverse conditions are a practitioner’s true wealth. Do not resist what comes uninvited."
Consciousness and the Absolute

[For 5 years I lived the monastic life style at a Zen training center. At the end of the first year I was called in for an interview with the Roshi to review my time there and see how I was doing. I reported that, at first, I loved living there - except for the inconveniences. But now I understood that the inconveniences were the whole point. He nodded gravely, said "Good", and motioned me to go. Lesson learned, interview over.]
