Right Effort

In Buddhism, Dharma Teachings, Sunday Morning Talks, Tsony by Tsony

We have completely tired ourselves out, exhausted ourselves beyond our hopefulness. We realize that life is hopeless and that any effort we put in to gain further experiences is also hopeless. Then we get into a real understanding of the space between us and our goal. That space is totally and completely full. And that fullness is what is called faith… Faith here means dedication to and conviction in one’s own intelligence… You have trust in the basic truth of what you are, who you are.
Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche in The Lion’s Roar, pp. 28-29.
