Dzogchen Verse (2)

Here is the essential meaning of resolution in openness :
coming from nowhere, abiding nowhere, and going nowhere,
external events, unoriginated visions in empty space, are ineffable;
internal events, arising and released simultaneously,
like a bird's flight-path in the sky, are inscrutable.

Imaged in the existential ground, without substance,
our experience cannot be articulated;
it all occurs autonomously, timelessly,
without linear sequence.
( Longchenpa, Treasury of Natural Perfection )
