Being Without Aggression

Book coverIn order to perceive or to understand the dharma, the truth of the teachings, you have to develop a state of mind without aggression, a mind based on non-ego and non-speed. Being without aggression means the materials of our experience are workable and could be woven into the pattern of the path. It may seem like a tall order to be without aggression. However, even for beginners, momentary states of mind occur that have elements of non-aggression and non-ego.

From “The Freshness of Unconditional Mind” in The Path of Individual Liberation, Volume One of The Profound Treasury of the Ocean of Dharma, by Chögyam Trungpa, page 331
