Mere Cogs

human-social-cogs-systemOur teachers are trying to lead us to acknowledge the true nature of our minds. We have accepted limitations that are not in our nature.

We have reduced what we are and how we are. We have minimized our capacities. We have accepted a view of ourselves as small, insignificant, disposable cogs in the machinery.

We cling to that pitiful identity and defend it with tooth and nail. Our teachers are trying to open our eyes and show us the unlimited, undefiled expanse of the mind.

About Tashi Nyima

I am a Dharma student, and aspire to be a companion on the path. I trust that these texts can offer a general approach and basic tools for practicing the Buddha's way to enlightenment. ||| Soy un estudiante del Dharma, y aspiro a ser un compañero en el sendero. Espero que estos textos ofrezcan a algunos un mapa general y herramientas básicas para la práctica del sendero a la iluminación que nos ofrece el Buda.
