Daily Wisdom / Ocean of Dharma

Dharma is a Household Name

Book coverThe natural tendency of mindfulness-awareness, when the concept of egolessness has already evolved in your mind, is to flash onto dharma, the teachings of the Buddha. In other words, you no longer regard dharma as a foreign entity, but it becomes very familiar. You begin to realize that dharma is a household thought, a household word, and a household activity. Each time you uncork your bottle of wine or unpop your can of cola or pour yourself a glass of water—whatever you do becomes a reminder. You cannot get rid of it; it becomes a natural situation. So you learn to live with your sanity.

From Training the Mind and Cultivating Loving-Kindness by Chögyam Trungpa, page 136.
