Chaos Is the Inspiration

September 27, 2011

Very beautiful situations have developed using chaos as part of the enlightened approach.  There is chaos of all kinds developing all the time:  psychological dis-order, social dis-order, metaphysical dis-order, what have you, constantly happening.  If you are trying to stop those situations, you are looking for external means of liberating yourself, another answer.  But if we are able to look into the basic situation, then chaos is the inspiration, confusion is the inspiration.

From Ocean of Dharma: The Everyday Wisdom of Chögyam Trungpa. Quote 12. Originally from an unpublished talk, 1972, Boulder, Colorado.
