“Underlying intelligence is always there. As long as we relate with our underlying primordial intelligence and as long as we push ourselves a little, by jumping into the middle of situations, then intelligence arises automatically. When you’re in the middle of a situation, you automatically pick up on what is needed. It’s not a question of how to do it — you just do it. And you find yourself doing it perfectly, even surprising yourself.”
~ Chögyam Trungpa —
“Meditation is not just a rest or retreat from the turmoil of the stream or the impurity of the world. It is a way of being the stream, so that one can be at home in both the white water and the eddies. Meditation may take one out of the world, but it also puts one totally into it.”
~ Gary Snyder ~
“An emotion is only an emotion. It’s just a small part of your whole being. You are much more than your emotion. An emotion comes, stays for a while, and goes away, just like a storm. If you’re aware of that, you won’t be afraid of your emotions.”
~Thich Nhat Hanh~
Being without passion, behold the source!
