Commenting on Work, Sex, and Money

February 14, 2011

In the opening chapter of Work, Sex, Money: Real Life on the Path of Mindfulness, Chögyam Trungpa asks:

As Buddhist practitioners or practitioners of meditation, we are supposed to be immersed in the contemplative tradition and spiritual practice. Why would we discuss work, sex, and money?

In the next chapter, he goes on to suggest:

Shouldn’t the basic point of spiritual practice be to inspire an understanding that permits us to relate with life in the fullest way? From that point of view, work, sex, and money could be said to be the highlights of the spiritual experience of everyday life.

What do you think? Does spirituality relate to everyday life, to the nitty-gritty, to work, sex, and money? Share your thoughts on this topic, for a chance to win a copy of the book. Five winners will be randomly selected at the end of the week.

Congratulations to Alanda, Shenyen, Barb, Rupa, and Bryan! They each won a free copy of Work, Sex, Money: Real Life on the Path of Mindfulness. Thank you to everyone who took the time to leave a comment. Stay tuned for more contests and giveaways!
