Namkhai Norbu Rinpoche
The desire for happiness is the disease of attachment; one can be happyonly when free of desires. Realization is not achieved by striving for it;it arises spontaneously when one abides in the natural state without seeking anything. So remain in the natural state without seeking, without concepts!
Even though the name 'enlightenment' is used for the real nature, this does not mean that 'enlightenment' concretely exists. If someone believes the opposite, let them go ahead and try to find enlightenment apart from the dimension of fundamental reality; they will find nothing at all. So, instead of aiming for enlightenment, one has to understand the nature of one's mind beyond action. On examining one's mind, one finds nothing, yet at the same time there is clarity that is every present. It does not manifest concretely, yet its essence is all pervading; this is the way its nature presents itself.
