The outer world in all its variety and our inner world of thoughts and emotions are not as they seem.
All phenomena appear to exist objectively, but their true mode of existence is like a dream: apparent yet insubstantial.
The experience of emptiness is not found outside of the world of ordinary appearance, as many people mistakenly assume. In truth, we experience emptiness when the mind is free of grasping at appearance.
-Dzigar Kongtrul Rinpoche, “The Theater of Reflection” (Thank you Martie for this great thought for today!)
