From Ocean of Dharma comes this quote from Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche about being fully genuine in life and in art. It’s excerpted from his previously unpublished dharma art teaching “Unconditional Beauty” from our January magazine.
When relaxation develops in us, through letting go of neurosis and experiencing a sense of space and cool fresh air around us, we begin to feel good about ourselves. We feel that our existence is worthwhile. In turn we feel that our communication with others could also be worthwhile, pure, and good. On the whole we begin to feel that we are not cheating anybody; we are not making anything up on the spot. We begin to feel that we are fully genuine.
