Glimpse of Enlightenment ~ Chögyam Trungpa

The terms enlightenment or buddha or awakened imply tremendous sharpness and precision along with a sense of spaciousness. We can experience this; it is not a myth. We experience a glimpse of it. The point is to start from the glimpse and gradually, as you become more familiar with that glimpse and the possibilities of reigniting it, it happens naturally. A flash occurs, maybe a fraction of a second. These flashes happen constantly, all the time. Faith is realizing that there is some open space and sharpness in your everyday life.
