Willing to be a Fool

Book coverWe have to allow ourselves to realize that we are complete fools; otherwise, we have nowhere to begin. We have to be willing to be a fool and not always try to be a wise guy. We could almost say that being willing to be a fool is one of the first wisdoms. So acknowledging foolishness is always a very important and powerful experience.

From “Wise Fool” in True Perception: The Path of Dharma Art by Chögyam Trungpa, page 95
