"Student" and guru...


Student:

Do attachments still rear their ugly head in your practice? And, if so, what do you do about them?"

Lama Shenpen:

That is what my practice consists of all the time - habitual patterns of attachment to things as real, to ways of thinking that I know are misguided. So the practice is to notice that and wake up - that is what practice is. When there is no more attachment I wont need practice - I will be Enlightened!

i believe that as one practices, there are lessons in...
attachment, detachment, and unattachment.

they are not the same;
and yet, they all serve.
the question is how?

knowing there is great freedom in knowing.

may this holiday time be filled with great joy for you, Shiva... {=}

Just a little food for thought.............
If you really want to be happy, nobody can stop you...
