when in doubt

By knowing

that this self-arising

pristine awareness

is buddhahood itself,

you will free yourself,

when in doubt,

from the obstacle

of hoping to obtain something

in the future.



  1. I find humor in this, though I don't know if it was meant to be funny. For sure it is an interesting piece, and it made me think about what doubt and knowing mean.

  2. Is it the "when in doubt" part that you find humorous?

  3. Love this quote...awareness is closer than thought, inescapable and unlosable...who needs the future? Thank you.

  4. Diane, it seems that Colleen has pointed out for us that the knowing-of-awareness is "closer" than the doubting-of-thought. Thanks, Colleen!

    Who needs the future??? "Seekers" think or feel that they do, in order to find "something" that is not already the case.
