Setting: Karme Chöling 1972
Trungpa Rinpoche and I are sitting side by side. There’s a long period of silence. Out of the blue, he looks over at me and says: “Why don’t you just let go?”
I say, “I can’t let go. I’m afraid I’ll never come back.”
Rinpoche looks at me again and says, “That’s because you don’t understand that there’s no place to go.”
