here is another quote:

We humans are actually not that far from enlightenment. Our five senses are like the Emanation Body of a Buddha; our dream body, which is similar to the after-death form, is like a Buddha’s Beatific Form; and the basis of both of these is the subtle mind of clear light which shares the nature of a Buddha’s Wisdom Body. All we have to do is learn to transform these ordinary elements into their pure natures. Then buddhahood naturally comes into our hands.

From The Path to Enlightenment, page 62.

I love the quotes that I am getting from this site and I have decided to share them with you.

"THE OPEN MIND OF DOUBT

In the beginning, it’s easier to experience our controlling mind, with all our attachments, than the open mind of doubt and unknowing. So the exercise is first to make a list of all our attachments. These might include ideas or things. You might, for example, list possessions you think you need, such as a certain kind of car or clothes. Then you might list ideas you consider important or true, such as the belief that you need to eat meat to get enough protein. The point is to lay bare all our attachments—everything we think is essential to who we are. Only when we let go of these attachments can we experience the open mind of doubt. "

Enjoy, I sure do.
