Slamming the Gate

Reggie Ray said a striking thing in one of his Dharma Ocean talks (highly recommended btw) about the Tibetan Buddhist practice of totally opening up to what is happening to you:

“Strangely, [said with a wry smile, I imagine], whatever messed up stuff you’re living through right now – that is the gateway to life. The moment you start living in your thoughts about how your experience SHOULD be, then the gate slams shut.”

That is so true. But, oh, what a hard habit to break..!

I’d love to know your thoughts about the gateway to life. Drop me a message with any thoughts, comments, questions, queries or insights that pop up while reading the blog. I’d love to hear from you!
