Gain certainty in the fact that since the very beginning your own mind is the awakened state of Buddhahood. Gain certainty in the fact that all phenomena are, in essence, the magical display of mind.
Gain certainty in the fact that the final goal is already present within you and is not to be sought elsewhere… Unless you experience the innate nature of phenomena and mind as beyond thought and conception, [you will suffer when] your kingdom and worldly power, which are as insubstantial as a rainbow, fade and vanish.

- p50, Dalai Lama's Secret Temple

One glimpse of the lama’s vision of pure light
Destroys illusion like a mad elephant
Rampaging through hostile ranks, wielding a sword in its trunk.

I, who exist in things as they are,
Without self, not thinking, not achieving,
Am saved from the pit of nihilism by existential self-awareness,
Am saved from and eternal heaven by absolute detachment.
I live in consummate pure delight and perfect awareness.

enjoying profound and perfect insight,
I am not cowed by visionary experience.
Every situation is a play of empty being, the magical illusion ..”
Enjoying the unstructured quality of every occurrence,
I am no coward in the face of my thought-forms.
every even is a display of mental projections …

- Yeshe Tsogyel (Sky Dancer, p81- 82)
