Process is more important than outcome. When the outcome drives the process we will only ever go to where we’ve already been. If process drives outcome we may not know where we’re going, but we will know we want to be there.
A worldly person approaches life differently than a spiritual practitioner. A worldly person always looks at phenomena as if through a window, judging the outer experience; a practitioner, on the other hand, uses experiences as a mirror to examine their own mind repeatedly, in minute detail, to determine where the strengths and weaknesses lie, how to develop the former and eliminate the latter.
