"Once we have an experience of selflessness, our confidence grows...We can see now that the trip is transforming the traveler. Our path, at this point, becomes less about traveling to a destination we call 'liberation' and becomes more a way of life. We no longer focus solely on how to get out of our own personal suffering. It may come as a surprise to us, but by studying our mind, we discover our heart; by freeing our mind we open our heart; and our vision of freedom naturally expands to include others. Instead of seeking to protect ourselves from confusion and chasos, we begin to appreciate that confusion as being full of opportunities to train our mind further. The possibilities are actually infinite. For that reason, we feel a sense of delight at being in the world and working with others; it never becomes tiring. Our budding experience of selflessness opens a door to a new sense of appreciation for the full range of human experience" - Rebel Buddha, Dzogchen Ponlop.
