‘One does not become enlightened by imagining figures of light, but by making the darkness conscious.’ — Carl Jung
SHOOT AND PLAY
Never straining your mind
And never relaxing your mind
Mind becomes decent.
As we shoot an arrow or play music
The string is reasonable.
As musicians and archers, we are always heartbroken
How can we actually sow and propagate dharma in the world?
Thanks to you, father guru,
We can perform according to your vision.
With no lute, no arrow,
Still we shoot and play.
– Chögyam Trungpa
