Achieving Discipline

“Sometimes people who really achieve the pinnacle of their discipline—not only in their riding but in other arts—these people who are great artists, they have a lot of problems in their personal life.” I said to him, “Why is that the case?” and he said, “Because they really have such a profound experience of wakefulness when they’re performing their art but they don’t have the tools to bring it into their life. So they’re always missing that in their day-to-day life.” And I did observe that to be true. — Diana Mukpo recalling a conversation with her late husband Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche
