No one can save us from the state of chaos or samsara unless we
understand the meaning of chaos and confusion, unless we have
experienced it and suffered from it. Otherwise, although we may be in
the midst of chaos, we don't notice it. You don't begin to notice
chaos until you are already on the path. Then you begin to feel
uncomfortable. You feel that something is a nuisance. Something's
bugging you constantly. You realize the chaos when you are already
making the journey.
