Don't Get Stuck in a Pigeonhole

March 31, 2011

There is no problem when people are not stuck on anything but are in the process of expanding. Then you can find a sense of built-in freedom. Don’t try to put everything into a pigeonhole. If you do that, you might find yourself stuck in one pigeonhole. But if you regard your existence as cosmic, then you won’t be stuck on anything. Our home is not just this planet Earth. It is our solar system.

From “Pragmatism and Practice,” in Selected Writings, page 428 in The Collected Works of Chögyam Trungpa, Volume Eight.
