Training Notes

When you live your life in accordance with basic goodness, then you develop natural elegance. Your life can be spacious and relaxed, without havingto be sloppy. You can actually let go of your deprssion and embarrassment aboutbeing a human being, and you can cheer up.

The result of practicing the discipline of warriorship is that you learn to stop ambition and frivolity, and out of that, you develop a good sense of balance. Balance comes, not from holding on to a situation, but making friends with heaven and earth. Earth is gravity,or practicality. Heaven is vision orthe experience of open space in which you can uplift your posture, your head and shoulders. Balance comes from joining practicality with vision, or we could say, joining skill with spontaneity.

First trust in yourself. Then you can also trust in the earth or gravity of a situation, and because of that, you can uplift yourself. At that point, your discipline becomes delightful rather than being an ordeal or a great demand… learn to float…Each step is a dance.  Chogyam Trungpa
