Let Your Confidence Shine We human beings are naturally radiant and brilliant. Through the practice of meditation, says Sakyong mipham, we discover an unconditional confidence that transforms our lives and benefits others. we are all leaderS. We have no choice. Each of us is lead- ing our own life. We are making decisions every moment, even if it’s just whether to butter our toast. To lead our lives well, we need to be intimately involved with our own journey. Practicing meditation is a way to lead our lives with vision. We take the proper posture, let ourselves be, and get in touch with the unconditional health of the mind. That is meditation. Even in the beginning, as we struggle with thoughts, emo- tions, and sense perceptions, we experience a glimmer of inher- ent nonaggression that allows us to be at peace. Meditating is PHotobyrobertmann/mIllennIumImaGeS,u.K. an unbiased way to strengthen our confidence in this feeling of space and accommodation. Confidence in our inherent nonaggression cannot be acquired, only uncovered. If you feel that you have to create it, you are experiencing a tinge of aggression, which manifests as a feeling of disharmony and uneasiness. It is a dualistic root that requires us to struggle. We are not content with what we are experiencing. sakyong mipham rinpoche’s most recent book is the Sham- bhala Principle: discovering Humanity’s Hidden treasure.
