Mind you, I arrived at this conclusion but scant years ago and by much rockier path; I read this quote as I sipped morning coffee and scanned the outlets I follow for first day’s input:
“Hope is fear of fear.” – Dzogchen Ponlop Rinpoche
I don’t know how often you read something and think, “Wish I could have learned THAT one easier”, but such was the immediate response when I read it.
As I sit here, I consider trying to explain how I determine that quote to be correct. Of course, I decide not to because my experience isn’t yours and it’s unlikely my explanation will suit you.
More’s the pity.
Hope the midweek is treating you well. (hug)
