Confusion

“Any confusion you experience has within it the essence of wisdom. So as soon as you detect confusion, it is the beginning of message. At least you are able to see your confusion, which is very hard. Ordinarily people do not see their confusion at all. So by recognizing your confusion, you are already at an advanced level. You shouldn’t feel bad about your confusion; you can feel good about it.”

~ Chögyam Trungpa

“Phenomena or experiences – they are like mist; they will fade away. A practitioner who spends time practicing in seclusion is certain to witness many kinds of phenomena and has many different experiences, but the phenomena or experiences are as unreliable as rainbows – if you run after them, you will be deceived. When true realization dawns in one’s mind, it is like the king of mountains, Mount Meru, which no wind can shake.”

~ Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche
