First mind, first thought ~ Chögyam Trungpa

Basic goodness is based on your first mind, first thought. Before thought, you have a gasp, a sharp in-breath, Ah-ah! Whatever you think, even before you think before you gasp, there is space. There is purity. There is ah-ah! Sometimes you feel so dumb that you can’t think of anything. Sometimes you you think you’re so intelligent, you can’t think of anything. There is just Ah-ah!
