How you lie to yourself

CR Lama said of himself, “I am liar number one and cheater number one.” This is a very important teaching. Once you know how you lie to yourself, once you know how you cheat yourself, you have the beginning of true practice. When we sit in meditation we see many ways in which we cheat ourself. There are many, many thoughts which easily catch us, and many ways in which we abandon ourselves into whatever is arising. The basis of practice is to be honest with ourselves and to work whatever occurs without complacency or blame
