Genes of Wakefulness

Book coverThere is a quality of wakefulness that has no fixation and no sense of entity. It is egoless. We could call this quality the genes of wakefulness, or genes of emptiness. Wakefulness is not a game or a technique. It is clear and spacious, very basic and ordinary, with no self-consciousness.

From “Enlightened Genes” in The Profound Treasury of the Ocean of Dharma. Volume Two: The Bodhisattva Path of Wisdom and Compassion by Chögyam Trungpa, page 65
