Non-Striving

Book coverWe begin to realize that there is a sane, awake quality within us. In fact, this quality manifests itself only in the absence of struggle. So we discover the Third Noble Truth taught by the Buddha, the truth of the goal: that is, non-striving. We need only drop the effort to secure and solidify ourselves, and the awakened state is possible.

From “The Four Noble Truths” in Cutting Through Spiritual Materialism by Chögyam Trungpa, page 153
