The greater the sanity we achieve, the more we find there are problems. As we become more sharp and more perceptive, therefore we begin to perceive specks of dust much more vividly. In such cases, please don’t panic. It’s the result of the sharpening of our prajna, our intellect. The more we tie up the loose ends, the more loose ends we find everywhere. That is something very natural, that we have to live with.
From “Another Year, Another Zafu,” in The Best of the Vajradhatu Sun, February/March 1980.
