HOw to Rule

“Normally, there appears to be a conflict between survival and celebration.Survival, based on taking care of your basic needs, is based on pragmatism, exertion, and often drudgery. Celebration, on the other hand, is often connected with extravagance and doing something beyond your means. The notion of ruling your world is that you can live in a dignified and disciplined way, without frivolity, and at the same time enjoy life. You can combine survival and celebration. The Kingdom that you are ruling is your own life: it is a householder’s kingdom. Whether or not you have a husband or wife and children, still there is a structure and pattern to your daily life. Many people feel that the regularity of life is a constant im.posit@ion. They would like to have a different LIFE, or a different menu, every second, at every meal. It is necessary to settle down somewhere and work at having a regular, disciplined LIFE. The more discipline that occurs, however, the more joyous LIFE can be. So the pattern of your LIFE can be a joyous one, a celebration, rather than obligation alone. That is what it means to rule the Kingdom of your LIFE…” (Shambala, Sacred Path of The Warrior by Chogyam Trungpa, Sacredness, The Warriors World, p.143, How To Rule)
