Seek teachings

As a bee seeks nectar
from all kinds of flowers,
seek teachings everywhere.
Like a deer that finds
a quiet place to graze,
seek seclusion to digest
all you have gathered.
Like a madman,
beyond all limits,
go wherever you please
and live like a lion
completely free of all fear.

-- a Dzogchen tantra, from The Crystal and the Way of Light by Namkhai Norbu
