It Is The Universe

“The world is a totality, with its brain, circulation, muscles and limbs. We are not talking about the totality in the sense that everything should be good and perfect and fantastic. We are talking about reality, in which good is made out of bad and bad is made out of good. Therefore, the world can exist in its own good/bad level, its black and white, dark and light. Whatever is there, favorable or unfavorable, is workable: it is the universe.”

~ Chögyam Trungpa

Now Is Everything

“Now is everything. Whatever you do in this very moment is everything: it’s the past, it’s the future, it’s now. So you develop tremendous confidence that what you are doing is honest. Whether we can make absolutely realistic choices or not, it depends on how accurately we are in the now.”

~ Chögyam Trungpa

Become A Bridge

“Because you have joy and celebration in your practice, it does not feel like a burden to you. You are willing to become a rock or a bridge or a highway. You are willing to serve any worthy cause that might help, so that others could use you as a working basis for their enjoyment of sanity.”
