“It’s not that from the point of view of dzogchen, a calm mind is a better mind than a busy mind—if you have a lot of work to get done then the capacity for your mind to be busy and to hold many things together is necessary. Neither is it about placing different experiences in a hierarchical order, but rather it is to see that the various ways we manifest have particular functions. If our function is in harmony with the current context then by being present in that way one can be more useful both for oneself and for others.”
