Freed From pointlessness

“Once you have understood the basic reality of this world – the interdependence of phenomena and the unity of emptiness, you will clearly see how delusional the ways of the world really are. Like a grownup forced to play children’s games, you will find them very tiresome. When you have realized the utter pointlessness of spending your life attached to friends and scheming to overcome your enemies, you will find it tedious. Once you have been struck by the pitifulness of letting yourself be forever conditioned by your habitual tendencies, you will become sick of it … That will inspire you to strive toward liberation.”

~ Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche
