The Motivation to Practice II: Faith

Book coverMotivation also has to do with faith, basic faith in what you are doing. Because of faith, you have a sense of being, or existing. You are here and you are following a definite path, so it is not blind faith. If you do not happen to have faith, however, you could start simply. You could have faith in not having faith. If you are penniless and have faith that you are penniless, you could become a millionaire.

From “Following the Example of the Buddha” in The Profound Treasury of the Ocean of Dharma, Volume One, by Chögyam Trungpa, page 182
