Dzogchen Is The Mystic Way
Mystic: a person who seeks, by contemplation and self-surrender, to obtain unity with or absorption into the Deity or the absolute, or who experiences spiritual apprehension of truths that are beyond the intellect.
Along our path to enlightenment, there are thorn bushes and beautiful flowers, to which we are attached. These might be beautiful rituals or deceptive conspiracies or scholastic knowledge.
Our path is our own confusion.
Our confusion never existed.
Confusion is merely temporary distractions.
We have been witness to confusion all along.
“Don’t wander, don’t wander, place mindfulness on guard;
Along the road of distraction, Mara lies in ambush.
Mara is this mind, clinging to like and dislike;
So look into the essence of this magic, free from dualistic fixation.
Realise that your mind is unfabricated primal purity.
There is no buddha elsewhere; look at your own face.
There is nothing else to search for; rest in your own place.
Non-meditation is spontaneous perfection, so capture the royal seat.”
Drubwang Tsoknyi Rinpoche I
