Real Nature

Two people have been living in you all your life.
One is the ego, garrulous, demanding, hysterical, calculating;
the other is the hidden spiritual being, whose still voice of wisdom you have only rarely heard or attended to.

As you listen more and more to the teachings,
contemplate them, and integrate them into your life,
your inner voice, your innate wisdom of discernment,
what we call in Buddhism “discriminating awareness,”
is awakened and strengthened,
and you begin to distinguish between its guidance and the various clamorous and enthralling voices of ego.

The memory of your real nature,
with all its splendor and confidence begins to return to you.
Sogyal Rinpoche
