[OceanofDharma] Quotes of the Week: A Vast Store of Energy

Ocean of Dharma Quotes of the Week

January 30, 2008


There is a vast store of energy which is not centered, which is not ego's energy at all. It is this energy which is the centerless dance of phenomena, the universe interpenetrating and making love to itself. It has two characteristics: a fire quality of warmth and a tendency to flow in a particular pattern, in the same way in which fire contains a spark as well as the air which directs the spark. And this energy is always ongoing, whether or not it is seen through the confused filter of ego. It cannot be destroyed or interrupted at all. It is like the ever-burning sun. It consumes everything to the point where it allows no room for doubt or manipulation.

From "Love," in THE MYTH OF FREEDOM and the Way of Meditation, page 109. Shambhala Library edition.
