Student: Would you say that unconditional confidence is the same as tenderness?
Chogyam Trungpa: Yes, very much so. The unconditional confidence is the
pragmatic aspect of that tenderness. It is the action arising from the
softness. It is just like watching the sun rise. First, it is very feeble

Confidence is not arrogance or pride or anything like that. Confidence is a
natural unfolding process. It's not a question of needing confidence or not
needing it. It's naturally there.
