To Think Beyond

Trungpa-expanders

“The bad news is you’re falling through the air, nothing to hang on to, no parachute. The good news is there’s no ground.”

“Becoming ‘awake’ involves seeing our confusion more clearly.”

“There is no need to struggle to be free; the absence of struggle is in itself freedom.”

“It’s easier to put on a pair of shoes than to wrap the earth in leather.”

“The idea is not to regard the spiritual path as something very luxurious and pleasurable, but to see it as just facing the facts of life.”

“We must try to think beyond our homes, beyond the fire burning in the fireplace, beyond sending our children to school or getting to work in the morning. We must try to think how we can help this world. If we don’t help, nobody will. It is our turn to help the world.”
