There was a 12th century, actually 13th-century, Tibetan teacher named Orgyenpa. ... He goes on to say, “Not searching for a state that is calmly resting, vividly clear and filled with bliss. Bring into your experience whatever arises, without taking it up or discarding it.” It’s that last phrase that’s really important to remember. It’s bringing everything into your experience whatever arises. This does not mean just doing whatever—it’s not just blowing around like a plastic bag in the wind. At the same time there is this continual dawning of experience, a kind of “thisness” of reality. And he is recommending, instructing—and I love that this eight centuries ago at least and it still applies—he is saying bring into your experience whatever arises. Bring it in, without taking it up or discarding it. He is talking about a very specific kind of view of experience.
