probably so

a raw open wound

that is how chögyam trungpa rinpoche

described some feeling, perhaps this feeling

of opening to one's fallibility and ultimate destruction

your experience is raw and tender and so personal,

he said, it is this tender heart of a warrior

that has the power to heal the world

surrender means opening oneself completely, he said,

trying to get beyond fascination and expectation, surrender

also means acknowledging the raw, rugged, clumsy, and shocking

qualities of one’s ego, acknowledging them and surrendering them as well

generally we find it very difficult, he said,

to give out and surrender our raw and rugged qualities of ego

perhaps he said all of this

when he wasn't drunk and snorting cocaine

and womanizing, or perhaps he said all of this

because of that
