My recent difficulties have been a stark reminder of the inevitability of suffering, and I've been reflecting on what has motivated me to practice down the years. The stock answer might be something like freedom from suffering, but on reflection I don't think that's ever been my primary motivation. It's more like a tremendous curiosity, a desire to explore and to understand, a wish to see things as they really are.
How about you?
