Sacredness is not just an idea. It is an experience. Having a realization of sacredness means that you experience an element of power and dignity in everything, including the ballpoint pen you are using, your comb, taking a shower, or driving your car.”
~Chöygam Trungpa Rinpoche, Smile at Fear, p. 112

Filing important papers, waiting for a meeting to begin, making that first cup of coffee at work: all can be inherently sacred moments.”
Re-reading Rinzler’s book in recent days, and especially coming on to this quote from Chöygam Trungpa Rinpoche, has been like the appearance of guideposts along the path I walk, indicating the way forward.
