In the beauty, in the ugliness

Usually when we fix our attention
We confine this natural cognizance.
Instead of doing that, why not simply let experience unfold?
There is some energy in the beauty,
In the ugliness,
In whatever situation you are in.
Just let it unfold, and you'll know more ande more.
There's no need to fix it or nail it down.
Just be carefree and let things be.
Then every single state within samsara and nirvana
Will only unfold, more and more.
When we are wide awake, anything can take place, can't it?

Tsoknyi Rinpoche, Carefree Dignity p.47
