Trungpa Rinpoche often talked about how the state of happiness is not our goal; that’s the goal of ego. We reach for pleasure, we avoid pain: that’s samsara. Want genuine happiness? You’re looking for a more fundamental state of being, the ocean beneath the waves.

    to achieve the degree of fitness thatmountaineeringdemands.

    Cooking together helps everyone stay on track the other six days.

    They have cravings, they get discouraged and give up. A terrific way to stay

    motivated to continue your fitness plan going. It was an important skill for the military,

    as soldiers had intelligent finance to be planned, right?
