Secondly, going the way of Sweden wouldn’t really be so bad if you consider...

Our True Nature is who we already are, not something we can become or attain in the future. The paradox becomes that we somehow don’t recognize this fact and spend years searching for something that was never lost, and if we’re fortunate, we’ll run into a teacher along the way who will simply, as the Tibetan Dzogchen tradition puts it, “point out” what is perfectly...
