Chögyam Trungpa

‘Whenever we begin to evaluate, deciding that we should or should not do this or that, then we have already associated our practice or our knowledge with categories, one pitted against the other, and that is spiritual materialism, the false spirituality of our spiritual advisor. Whenever we have a dualistic notion such as, “I am doing this because I want to achieve a particular state of consciousness, a particular state of being,” then automatically we separate ourselves from the reality of what we are.’  (Cutting Through Spiritual Materialism)

A friend suggested I read this book, and having never done so, it seemed like a smart idea. I expressed a view about Chögyam Trungpa previously, and will stand by that sentiment still.
