Chögyam Trungpa: Nevermind the Bollocks.
Well, Trungpa Rinpoche didn’t say that, exactly. He said,
Although your external circumstances may vary, your practice of exchanging yourself for others should not be dependent on that. Whether you are sick or well, rich or poor, have a good reputation or bad reputation, you should practice mind training.
From Training the Mind and Cultivating Loving Kindness, Slogan 50, page 107 in the Shambhala Classic Edition.
A welcome reminder, if say you’ve had a bad day, been in a fight with a loved one, lost your keys…or lost your livelihood to the BP Oil Spill…or lost your offices, staff, given up your car, and your home is in foreclosure…a reminder that this very moment is just as full and vivid and…well, right here, right now…as ever.
