Daily Wisdom / Ocean of Dharma

Natural Situations are Not Threats

Book coverThe interaction that happens between mind and perception is regarded as sacred and natural. It is sacred because it is natural, almost mechanical. Fire burns; water creates moisture; wind blows; space accommodates. Situations that occur naturally are not regarded as threats.

From “Ground Mahamudra” in The Profound Treasury of the Ocean of Dharma, Volume Three: The Tantric Path of Indestructible Wakefulness by Chögyam Trungpa, page 594
