  • Cutting Through Spiritual Materialism, Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche: 

Generally, we tend to prepare too much.  We say, Once I make a lot of money, then I’ll go somewhere to study and meditate and become a priest, or whatever it is that we would like to become.  But we never do it on the spot.  We always speak in terms of: Once I do something then….  We always plan too much.  We want to change our lives rather than use our lives, the present moment, as part of the practice.  And this hesitation on our part creates a lot of set backs in our spiritual practice.  Most of us have romantic ideas:  I’m bad now, but one day, when I change, I’ll be good.
Chogyam: Just doing it.
