Preconceptions ~ Milarepa

Just as fog is dispelled by the strength of the sun and is dispelled no other way, preconception is cleared by the strength of realization.
There’s no other way of clearing preconceptions.
Experience them as baseless dreams.
Experience them as ephemeral bubbles.
Experience them as insubstantial rainbows.
Experience them as indivisible space.


Milarepa
