A Genuine Warrior
A genuine warrior has a lot of resources within herself, resources that are always there. Although you feel that you’ve run out of ideas, you’re not really running out of anything. You’re being attacked by your own cowardice. You can go beyond that and find further resources within yourself. Banks and banks of inspiration unfold constantly.
How is it that the words of someone who passed away more than two decades ago can feel so amazingly fresh, up to date, and applicable to what we are facing at this time? It’s not so strange, really, because Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche was always addressing what’s happening in this very moment, and that kind of direct, spontaneous teaching never goes out of fashion.
