R: No, no. Nothing like that. Just a trip. " That approach. " You have some kind of experience of journey as well as of discipline at the same time-in the proper, sane way, not hippy style but just experiencing the real meaning. '' Q: It's kind of like ''vocation'' or something like that. R: Well, vocation with a lot of chili in it. It's more colorful than just pure vocation, like the vocation of being a monk. ] I suppose the closest word we could think of would be "practitioner," if you like-which is a very tamed thing.
