Chogyam Trungpa has a quick antidote. He says: when it seems society has trapped you in a narrow box, just go through the walls! What he meant to say by that, is that the problem is that the inhumanity of the noise around us has petrified our OWN humanity! You know what else?
When Trungpa, an ordained Tibetan lama, escaped from the Communist Chinese invasion - by the skin of his teeth read it all in his Born in Tibet - he had NO exposure to sophisticated Western society. Know what else? The walls that are melting are really US. On top of that, we are ALL different.
You know, the behaviouristic conditioning of the media funnels us into Sameness. Regimes have tried all that in the past. History proves that endlessly. People actually DO become human again! Our constant modern conditioning shows us differences between people, but always DEFERS the intrinsic essences and value of those differences.
It makes us all seem bland and the same. But Trungpa restores the value to our differences which our media defers. He shows us that Difference is psychologically embedded in our Lost nature. We just have to feed it. So which pet gets fed the most in OUR lives? Behaviourism simply tries to saddle us with ugly, unsympathetic pets. Pets of annoyance, pettiness, and dull sameness.
At the end of the day, which pets have WE fed? Think about it. Sep 09, Paul Griffin rated it really liked it Recommends it for: seekers, philosophers, Merleau-Ponty.

Trungpa was a significant figure in the dissemination of Tibetan Buddhism to the West, founding Naropa University and establishing the Shambhala Training method, a presentation of the Buddhadharma largely devoid of ethnic trappings.

The Abhidharma is a collection of Buddhist scriptures that investigates the workings of the mind and the states of human consciousness. In this book Chogyam Trungpa dicussses the development of ego as it is explained in the Abhidharma. From the Buddhist perspective, the creation of ego is a neurotic process based on fundamental ignorance of our true situation. This book shows how an examination of the formation of ego leads to a realization of confusion and also provides an opportunity to develop real intelligence. The practice of meditation is represented as the means that enables us to see our psychological situation clearly and directly.
