trust in the path.

In mystic traditions, problems may sometimes appear to be due to your deepest self. According to one story, Naropa the monk, was seeking his teacher Tilopa. After many hardships, depressed because he was failing in his search, Naropa was about to kill himself. At that moment, Naropa was enlightened when his teacher, Tilopa appeared in a vision. Tilopa said, “I was always there in the midst of all your troubles, in fact I was each troublesome event." --unknown source
