That is beautifully worded. And yes, it does relate to the Ram Dass quote I posted today. You have a knack for finding relevant pointers that your readers might not have discovered on their own.
A pungent combination- the vast no-thingness of wisdom, and the minute attention that is compassion. Thank you for this post. Who is Guru Rinpoche?
thumbs up! ....letting go like a squirrel lets go of empty peanut shells.
Thanks Jeremy, it's good to hear from you. I like the squirrel image.
Thanks Diane, I'm glad "you can relate" - as they used to say - in the 70's?
Thanks Colleen, lately from things I read on-line, I get the feeling that many people are fixated on Emptiness, or Non-duality. And of course, that would HAVE TO BE a subtle, or not so subtle concept. That wouldn't be so bad, but these folks seem to think that that is IT.I get the image of someone rowing a boat using only one oar. Of course, they would just go "in circles."Guru Rinpoche was one of the early Dzogchen masters, who supposedly, wrote many texts which he hid - in order to be discovered by later generations. Dzogchen seems to have been pretty controversial in those days.
