I Just Like the Way He Writes

You should look into your confusion further. You should push into it instead of closing yourself off. In that way, you just keep opening and unfolding, like flowers in the summertime. Even though they are exposed to the weather, to the wind and rain, flowers still keep unfolding themselves, until finally they bloom at their best. You could be like the flowers: you could let the bees sit on you and take your honey away, and that would be fine. You should not take time off from your confusion, or from the inconvenience or embarrassment of seeing that confusion.
--Trungpa Rinpoche

Very nice.... but you strike me as someone who doesn't ever get confused! Perhaps this quotation is for the rest of us :)
