Trungpa on “getting over our embarrassment of being alive”

If we open our eyes, if we open our minds, if we open our hearts , we will find that this world is a magical place. It is not magical because it tricks us, or because it changes unexpectedly into something else, But it is magical because it can be so vividly, so brilliantly. However the discovery of that magic can only happen when we transcend our embarrassment about being alive, when we have the bravery to declare the goodness and dignity of human life, without either hesitation or arrogance.
