I can bear any pain as long as it has meaning.
I would rather exercise the magnetism of my physical presence, learn to formulate wordless spells, hypnotise others only with ceremonious gestures and gazes than pointlessly repeat the pronunciation of words in which I’ve never been able to find fulfillment. - Isgandar
One does not become enlightened by imagining figures of light, but by making the darkness conscious.
or is it this place within that doesn’t experience the pull between longing and aversion but rests in it’s own divine existence. -Janet Stone
“Warriorship is so tender, without skin, without tissue, naked and raw. It is soft and gentle.
You have renounced putting on a new suit of armor. You have renounced growing a thick, hard skin.
You are willing to expose naked flesh, bone, and marrow to the world.”
~ Chögyam Trungpa
