Now

“The past is fiction and the future is dream, and we are just living on the edge of a razor blade.”

Egoless

“Egolessness does not mean that nothing exists, as some have thought, a kind of nihilism. Instead, it means you can let go of your habitual patterns and when you let go, you truly let go. You do not re-create or rebuild another shell immediately afterward. Once you let go, you do not start all over again. Egolessness is having the trust to not rebuild again at all, and experiencing the psychological freshness that comes with not rebuilding. The truth of egolessness can only be experienced fully through meditation practice.”

~ Chögyam Trungpa

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.”
