Authentic Presence

I was just reminded of this story that I really like, about Trungpa Rinpoche. I guess one of his students was slacking off, or slumping over, or just not being upright and lungta-fied. So Rinpoche said to the student, “Student”—I don’t remember who the student was—”Student, pull your socks up.” And the student said, “But Rinpoche, I’m not wearing socks.” And Rinpoche said, “Then pull your pants up.”

Haha. Love that.
