Dreamlike Fabrication

From Turning The Mind Into An Ally

By Sakyong Mipham

In gathering our scattered mind we begin to discover who we really are right now, just by seeing that the web of thoughts we solidified as “me” is actually a series of vibrations. If we don’t learn to see through this web, however, our continual dreamlike fabrication of “me” will continue to be our meditation. We could be enveloped in it for our whole life . Believing that thought patterns are a solid self is the source of our bewilderment and suffering. Seeing through this simple misunderstanding is the beginning of enlightenment.
