Dzogchen and altruistic action
I've been reading Dzogchen texts recently, and it seems to be the natural culmination of my path. Its assertion that all is perfect as it is, and that no action or effort is necessary to "reach" realization resonate with me on all levels.
My only doubt revolves around altruistic action. It seems to me that if all is perfect as it is, then there's absolutely no reason to engage in any kind of action, even in altruistic action. Sharing the "good news" about the natural great perfection seems equatable to attempting to make a stormy ocean more peaceful. What's the point? After all, the ocean is always the ocean, stormy or tranquil.
Thanks for reading.
