Daily Dharma - Being Natural is Very Special

Wherever we are, whatever we're doing, what we need to acknowledge is something natural. Something uncontrived. The uncontrived state is actually very special. Being natural is very special. And the natural way is actually already with us, in or out of retreat, but we just don't acknowledge it. If you just acknowledge your natural way, that's enough, good enough. It's like the cow peeing in the field. It just stands there and pees. Every day, it just pees, quite naturally. That's really enough.

–Yongey Mingyur Rinpoche, from "The Easy Middle: An Interview with Mingyur Rinpoche," Tricycle, Summer 2003
