Receiving Others as Guests

If you can afford to be what you are, then that automatically means you could receive others as your guests. Because the ground your guests are treading on is safe ground, nobody is going through the floorboards. It is a sound, well-built house, your own house, and people could be welcome in it. That makes other people more comfortable and welcome, so that they don’t have to put up their portion of resistance anymore. It is mutual understanding.

From”Bardo,” in Transcending Madness: The Experience of the Six Bardos, page 14.
