Each day we deal with the challenges of ordinary life: a series of
mundane experiences that could be summarized by the title of this book, Work, Sex, Money.
We all hope that these aspects of our life will be a source of
fulfillment and pleasure, and they often are. Yet they are also always
sources of problems for which we seek practical advice and solutions.
The best prescription, according to Chögyam Trungpa, is a dose of
reality and also a dose of respect for ourselves and our world. His
profound teachings on work, sex, and money celebrate the sacredness of
life and our ability to cope with its twists and turns with dignity,
humor, and even joy.
There are, in fact, few definitive answers
in these pages. There is, however, authentic wisdom providing us with
tools we need to work with the toughest stuff in our lives.
