Karmapa on the nature of mind

The nature of a tamed mind is like space. When a practitioner’s mind is tamed – he or she is enlightened – the practitioner’s mind, as well as all of its experiences of samsara, both cease to exist, just like a dream.
It is important to notice the words, 'like space,' because space is used here only as an example, and one is not referring to space itself; otherwise it could mislead practitioners into misunderstanding enlightenment as great numbness.
