Once existence is established in one form realm or another, it tends to remain fairly stable with predictable changes. At the end of that form existence there is a grand transition before arising in another form. We need to make effort now, before the end of life takes us away to an unknown and predictably worse situation due to unresolved errors created in this life. ~ Domo Geshe Rinpoche ~~~~~

The Healthy Ego, White Conch and other Buddhist musings...

Image
It is the healthy ego that experiences the transformation of enlightenment.... now to gain understanding regarding what is a healthy ego. 
Ego is an organizing principle and tool and should become trained and purified before abandoning it. Otherwise it would be like abandoning your ship on the way to a destination. However, the eventual dismantling of the ego/innate view structure still does not cause reality to arise. It is simply a new platform to work from, where personal issues are not primary. ~ Domo Geshe Rinpoche ~~~~

"Es ist das gesunde Ego, welches die Transformation der Erleuchtung erlebt... nun gilt es zu verstehen, was ein gesundes Ego ist.
Das Ego ist ein organisatorisches Prinzip und ein Werkzeug und man sollte es ausbilden und reinigen, bevor man es aufgibt. Sonst wäre es, als ob man ein Schiff auf dem Weg zum Ziel verließe. Jedoch verursacht das letztendliche Aufgeben des Egos/der Struktur der angeborenen Sichtweise noch immer nicht, dass die Realität zum Vorschein k…
