The possibility of being generous ~ Chögyam Trungpa http://justdharma.com/s/tm986 Freedom is the possibility of being generous.

It is the absence of ego, the absense of self-consciousness. That is the ultimate freedom. The absense of self-conciousness brings generosity. You don't have to watch for dangers or be careful that you are going too far or…

Give up the paranoia ~ Chögyam Trungpa http://justdharma.com/s/f6k60 The open path is a matter of working purely with what is, of giving up altogether the fear that something may not work, that something may end in failure. One has to give up the paranoia that one might not fit into situations, that one might be rejected. One purely deals with life as it is. – Chögyam Trungpa from the book "Cutting Through Spiritual Materialism" ISBN: 978-1590306390…

To work for others, you need composure ~ Chögyam Trungpa http://justdharma.com/s/tqjfp To work for others, you first have to develop composure. If you have no basic stability, when you try to help others, they will not benefit from your help. If you are trying to prevent someone from falling out of a window, you will both go out the window together. To prevent that, you have to stay inside so that you can pull them back. In order to do this, training in mindfulness and awareness is…

Joyful path ~ Chögyam Trungpa http://justdharma.com/s/oc840 The basic idea of the practice is actually very joyful. It is wonderful that human beings can do such a fantastic exchange and that they are willing to invite such undesirable situations into their world. It is wonderful that they are willing to let go of even their smallest corners of secrecy and privacy, so that their holding on to anything is gone completely. That is very brave. We could certainly say that this is the world of…

First mind, first thought ~ Chögyam Trungpa http://justdharma.com/s/fad2n Basic goodness is based on your first mind, first thought. Before thought, you have a gasp, a sharp in-breath, Ah-ah! Whatever you think, even before you think before you gasp, there is space. There is purity. There is ah-ah! Sometimes you feel so dumb that you can't think of anything. Sometimes you you think you're so intelligent, you can't think of anything. There is just Ah-ah! – Chögyam Trungpa from the book…

When ego breaks down ~ Chögyam Trungpa http://justdharma.com/s/u1rpm Ignorance is the binding factor in the development of ego, but it also has a subtle relationship with the basic intelligence of buddha nature. Ignorance is not solid but is based on sparks or flashes of ignorance operating on some ground. Between two sparks of ignorance is the ground of intelligence on which this process of ignorance is operating. Sometimes, ignorance forgets for a moment to maintain itself, so that the…

The majesty of the world is always there ~ Chögyam Trungpa http://justdharma.com/s/buqv6 Look at the sun. The sun is shining. Nobody polishes the sun. The sun just shines. Look at the moon, the sky, the world at its best. Unfortunately, we human beings try to fit everything into conditionality. We try to make something out of nothing. We have messed everything up. That’s our problem. We have to go back to the sun and the moon, to dragons, tigers, lions, garudas (mythical birds). We can be…

Facing yourself ~ Chögyam Trungpa http://justdharma.com/s/hstuy Becoming a warrior and facing yourself is a question of honesty rather than condemning yourself. By looking at yourself, you may find that you've been a bad boy or girl, and you may feel terrible about yourself. Your existence may feel wretched, completely pitch black, like the black hole of Calcutta. Or you may see something good about yourself. The idea is simply to face the facts. Honesty play a very important part. Just see…

Experiencing things as they are ~ Chögyam Trungpa http://justdharma.com/s/an3mq When a person begins to realize the actual truth that already exists in the self-existing situation, then they are experiencing true dharma. So what is true dharma? It is experiencing things as they are. It’s nothing fancier than that. It’s very plain. That’s true dharma. – Chögyam Trungpa source: http://blog.shambhala.com/2014/10/14/true-dharma-is-very-plain/
