Enlightenment Happens First in a Dream

Karma is like a loaded freight train with a full head of steam barreling down the track. The coal shoveler rests, expecting the train to immediately stop because they stopped feeding it. That is the dilemma of a spiritual person, patience in the face of their impending unhappy karma. ~Domo Geshe Rinpoche ~~~

Enlightenment happens first in a dream and does not last for more than a moment. However, one awakens the next morning without memory of that but feeling quite different. This will go on from time to time (if lucky) until that person begins to practice in earnest. ~Domo Geshe Rinpoche ~~~~
Erleuchtung findet zuerst in einem Traum statt und dauert nicht länger als einen Moment. Man wacht zwar am nächsten Morgen auf, ohne sich daran zu erinnern, aber man fühlt sich ziemlich verändert. Dies passiert von Zeit zu Zeit (wenn man Glück hat), solange bis die Person ernsthaft anfängt zu üben." - Domo Geshe Rinpoche ---
