"The fundamental fear we have to work with is the fear of losing ourselves. When the stronghold of ego is threatened, fear is one of our strongest defense mechanisms. Beginning to dismantle it is one of the greatest gift we can give ourselves and others". -Chogyam Trunpa Rinpoche
'We accomplish this not by supressing our desires, our aversions, our fixations, or trying to 'think differently,' but rather by turning our awareness inward, examining the thoughts, emotions, and sensations that trouble us, and beginning to notice them - and perhaps even appreciate them - as expressions of awareness itself.
Simply put, the cause of the various disease we experience is the cure.
The mind that grasps is the mind that sets us free."
- Mingyur Rinpoche
