MIndfulness Meditation is Not About Reforming Yourself [Quote]



"If the meditation practice presented to you has nothing to do with you, but is a way of transforming you into a better personality, you have already been alienated by the very idea of practice. You feel that you are not good enough, that you could be better if you practiced more. In contrast, mindfulness of effort is not a way of reforming yourself -- it is starting with what you are. It is being what you are with exertion and discipline. You don't have to start by trying to be the best -- you just do it."


~ Chögyam Trungpa, Rinpoche
