Chögyam Trungpa: Awakening Confidence, in 100 Words.

Via on Aug 5, 2011

“The ideal of warriorship is that the warrior should be sad and tender, and because of that, the warrior can be very brave as well.” ~Chogyam Trungpa

“Warriorship refers to realizing the power, dignity, and wakefulness that are inherent in all of us as human beings. It is awakening our basic human confidence, which allows us to cheer up, develop a sense of vision, and succeed in what we are doing. Because warriorship is innate in human beings, the way to become a warrior—or the warrior’s path—is to see who and what we are as human beings and cultivate that. If we look at ourselves directly, without hesitation or embarrassment, we find that we have a lot of strength and a lot of resources available constantly.” ~ from Ocean of Dharma by Chogyam Trungpa edited by Carolyn Rose Gimian

  1. [...] Those rare gems that once discovered, we mentally beg for ignorance to relive the initial revelry as we unyieldingly share with those around us trying hard to inoculate them with the joy—the pure joy. [...]

  2. [...] Once you’ve discovered who you are and what this all is, it doesn’t matter where you are. [...]
