Raw, adjective: 7. brutally or grossly frank: a raw portrayal of human passions.

The beautiful thing about the dharma is that whatever arises is fine. The Buddha never said that some thoughts or feelings are bad and we should reject them. And there is no need to make a big deal about them or make them special either.

I think the point is to be natural with our experience…and to appreciate the unfolding of our life. Finding this place beyond grasping and rejection is the genuine resting place for a practitioner.
