Appreciating Your Basic Dignity

Book coverWhen you appreciate yourself, you realize that you don’t have to feel wretched or condemned. You don’t have to artificially puff yourself up, either. You discover your basic dignity, which comes along with gentleness. You have always possessed this, but you may never have recognized it before.

From Mindfulness in Action by Chögyam Trungpa, page 12–13
