From the oral commentary by Traleg Kyabgon Rinpoche on:

"THE OCEAN OF CERTAINTY"

- by the Ninth Karmapa, Wangchuk Dorje 

.

"The nature of thoughts is dharmakaya. 

The only antidote you need in meditation is non-interference. 

Awareness is attained from the lucidity of mind."

.

Maitreyanatha says: 

.

The mind does not need to be made more lucid 

Or deliberately put to rest. 

Simply focus on the innate nature of mind 

And you will become liberated through this recognition. 

.

Gyalwa Gotsangpa says: 

.

When a thought arises in the mind, 

Do not view it as bad. 

If you recognize the nature of thoughts to be emptiness, 

Thoughts are realized as dharmakaya. 

.

Gampopa says: 

.

Do not think of suppressing thoughts, 

but instead think how wonderful, how beneficial, 

and how indispensable it is to have disturbing thoughts, 

- because without them, 

- how would you recognize the nature of mind? 

.

You should not think you have to abandon your thoughts. 

It is just that, up this point, 

- you have not understood the nature of your thoughts. 

- That is the cause of your samsaric condition. 

.

If you use the right method, 

- thoughts can reveal the nature of mind, 

- which is the dharmakaya. 

.

.

.️

"For this reason, you should regard your thoughts 

as a useful and indispensable means for realizing the dharmakaya 

and gaining insight into the nature of the mind. 

.

Many more quotations of this nature could be used to support the view that disturbing thoughts and negative emotions are not something we deliberately need to abandon; ๐˜„๐—ฒ ๐˜€๐—ถ๐—บ๐—ฝ๐—น๐˜† ๐—ป๐—ฒ๐—ฒ๐—ฑ ๐˜๐—ผ ๐˜‚๐—ป๐—ฑ๐—ฒ๐—ฟ๐˜€๐˜๐—ฎ๐—ป๐—ฑ ๐˜๐—ต๐—ฒ๐—ถ๐—ฟ [๐˜๐—ฟ๐˜‚๐—ฒ] ๐—ป๐—ฎ๐˜๐˜‚๐—ฟ๐—ฒ [& ๐—ฑ๐˜†๐—ป๐—ฎ๐—บ๐—ถ๐—ฐ: ๐—จ๐Ÿฎ๐—ง].

.

It is only that you have not been able to use thoughts as part of your meditation in the past. We learn to use thoughts to attain a meditative state in the methods of the mahamudra teachings. 

.

Eyes never look at themselves; they always look outward. In a similar way, our disturbing thoughts have been opaque up to this point. 

.

Through the mahamudra method, thoughts become translucent, and when we realize their nature, we will no longer be disturbed by anything that happens in the mind. 

.

Whatever arises in the mind, regardless of its content, we will recognize its nature and no longer react to it from either fear or hope. We will simply be able to allow those mental processes to occur and our thoughts and emotions ๐˜„๐—ถ๐—น๐—น ๐—ฏ๐—ฒ๐—ฐ๐—ผ๐—บ๐—ฒ ๐˜€๐—ฒ๐—น๐—ณ-๐—น๐—ถ๐—ฏ๐—ฒ๐—ฟ๐—ฎ๐˜๐—ฒ๐—ฑ."

Quotes

The union of samsara and nirvana ~ Padmasambhava

When samsaric existence is freed in itself, there is no awakened state to accomplish apart form that. Once you realize this, samsara and nirvana are not two.

Falling in love with the universe ~ Chรถgyam Trungpa

At that point, there is no reference point to anyone or anything. It is just being in love, just appreciating your world. You don’t have to crank anything up. The main point is developing some kind of appetite for the universe, that everything is workable and lovable.

Though difficult, my main desire is to gain indestructible faith in these two [bodhicitta and emptiness] before dying.

.

If I can't help people generate these things within them, then our meeting is just a waste of time.

.

Beyond that, I am the poorest from the inner, outer and secret points of view. The best side of me is just having met the best Dharma, the best practice and the best masters."

.

How could it be dependent upon what anyone does to practice or realize it?

The movement of reality does not need us to give it a push.

Do I need to say that it is free from delusion?

The vast expanse of reality can never be darkened by the dust of presumptions (๐˜ช.๐˜ฆ. ๐˜ฐ๐˜ณ ๐˜ฃ๐˜ข๐˜ฅ ๐˜ฌ๐˜ข๐˜ณ๐˜ฎ๐˜ข).

Who then could believe that it needs to cleaned of such dust to be what it is?

It is never separate from where you are,

(๐˜ช.๐˜ฆ. ๐˜๐˜ต ๐˜ช๐˜ด ๐˜ฐ๐˜ถ๐˜ณ ๐˜ต๐˜ณ๐˜ถ๐˜ฆ ๐˜ฏ๐˜ข๐˜ต๐˜ถ๐˜ณ๐˜ฆ ๐˜ข๐˜ด ๐˜ช๐˜ต ๐˜ช๐˜ด ๐˜ฉ๐˜ฆ๐˜ณ๐˜ฆ & ๐˜ฏ๐˜ฐ๐˜ธ - ๐˜œ2๐˜›.)

so why scramble around in search of it?

=====================================

"The purpose of Dzogchen therefore is not the elimination of samsara through purification, but rather the simple recognition that the basis of both samsara and nirvana is found in the very same source, and that source is nothing other than the pristine purity and non-duality of the base. So in Dzogchen the seed of enlightenment, as it were, runs through everything, every experience and every phenomenon. It is inherent throughout the dualistic world. What is required is not renunciation nor transformation, but simply recognition, while "leaving everything just as it is". The kunzhi (Ground / Basis / Source) may be the basis of confusion and error or it may be the basis of wisdom and insight. But either way, the base is the same. And while being the base of delusion, it is not its cause."
