Just a thought that has come to me via the late great Tibetan master Chogyam Trungpa:
« The only way to experience things truly, fully, and properly is through the practice of meditation, creating a direct link with nature, with life, with all situations. When we speak of being highly developed spiritually, this does not mean that we float in the air. In fact, the higher we go, the more we come down to earth. »
What else is there to say?
