Opening to the World by Chogyam Trungpa

chogyam-bowlQuestion: When I see ugliness in myself, I do not know how to accept it. I try to avoid it or change it rather than accept it.Chogyam Trunpga: Well, you do not have to hide it. You do not have to change it. Investigate it further. When you see the ugliness in yourself, that is just a preconception. You see it as ugliness, which is still connected with the ideas of "good" and "bad." But you have to transcend even those words, "good" and "bad." You have to get beyond words and conceptualized ideas and just get into what you are, deeper and deeper. The first glimpse is not quite enough: you have to examine the concepts. Opening to oneself fully is opening to the world.
