In meditation, everybody should have a regal existence. Work with everything simply and directly, keep a good posture, follow the breath, and then project your mind. Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche Great Eastern Sun: The Wisdom of Shambhala #trungpa
Don’t Assume the Posture of a Wilted Flower ~ Chögyam Trungpa
When you slouch, you are trying to hide your heart, protecting it by slumping over. But when you sit upright but relaxed in the posture of meditation, your heart is naked. Your entire being is exposed - to yourself, first of all, but to others as well. Through the practice of sitting still and following your breath as it goes out and dissolves, you are connecting with your heart. By simply letting yourself be, as you are, you develop genuine sympathy towards yourself. When you sit erect, you proclaim to yourself and to the rest of the world that you are going to be a warrior, a fully human being.
from the book Shambhala: The Sacred Path of the Warrior
A lot of things haven’t been answered in our life—and we are still searching for the questions. The questioning is buddha nature. It is a state of potential. The more dissatisfaction, the more questions and more doubts there are, the healthier it is, for we are no longer sucked into ego-oriented situations, but we are constantly woken up. ~~~ Chögyam Trungpa #trungpa
"When a person develops real compassion, he is uncertain whether he is being generous to others or to himself because compassion is environmental generosity, without direction, without 'for me' and without 'for them'." ~~~ Chogyam Trungpa #trungpa
