Primordial Wisdom

July 25, 2012

Book coverWhen we cling to thoughts and memories, we are clinging to what cannot be grasped. When we touch these phantoms and let them go, we may discover a space, a break in the chatter, a glimpse of open sky. This is our birthright—the wisdom with which we were born, the vast unfolding display of primordial richness, primordial openness, primordial wisdom itself. When one thought has ended and another has not yet begun, we can rest in that space.

From Comfortable with Uncertainty: 108 Teachings on Cultivating Fearlessness and Compassion, page 142.
