The life of a monk is not for running
away from life and problems.To renounce is to give of yourself
fully. To be running away is just another form of greed.
Other practitioners rely on monastics for spiritual
and practice guidance if they request it.
To run and hide does no one any good. Face the samsaric life, lose the
attachment to self separate from others, then you will catch
a slight glimse of the Dharma. Then the real practice starts. Nothing worthwhile
is easy. Good luck!!
Peaec always, Stephen Pema Dorje
