Realize the nature of mind,
Because it is at the root of both samsaric suffering
And nirvanic bliss.
When you realize this,
Rest the mind without meditating,
Because only deluded people seek enlightenment
By abandoning their own minds.
quoted in the book The Ninth Karmapa, Wangchuk Dorje's Ocean of Certainty
