What I have learned from the example of my teachers is that work is worth it. We can strive to see the world through new eyes. We can learn to recognize in our own existence a precious opportunity to do some good.
Most of all, we can learn to leave a legacy.
I think this is what “transmission” ultimately means: A sense of depth fearlessly plumbed, discipline joyfully embraced, and the capacity to share what we have learned.
This is our legacy.
This is what we leave behind.
