One is essential to the other

Power in transition is relevant to the goal, one being essential to the other. 

Becoming Vegan was more important then being a Vegan because it gave me the opportunity to become something else (which is why I’m no longer Vegan!).

Tibetan Buddhist monks may be incorrect in their thinking that only the transition/ journey is important and not the goal. Because one is essential to the other, and wouldn’t exist without the other. They are blatantly disregarding the goal in order to prove a point of being in the moment.
