Your Practice is a Statement, Not a Question

February 10, 2012

In the practice of meditation, questions arise on the basis of trying to secure your basic ground as ego. If there is no ego-oriented question, there are no other questions. Instead, your practice is a statement, somewhat. It is extremely direct and deliberate. You are actually doing something. You are getting into this process without making sure that what you’re doing is okay. Things are actually taking place, almost of their own accord, very simply and directly. That is meditation.

From “A Meditation Instruction,” in the current issue of Shambhala Sun magazine. Based on unpublished talks by Chögyam Trungpa.
