How can we work to overcome attachment? Only by realizing its
impermanent nature; this realization slowly releases us from its
grip. We come to glimpse what the masters say the true attitude to
change can be: as if we were the sky looking at the clouds passing
by, or as free as mercury. When mercury is dropped on the ground, its
very nature is to remain intact; it never mixes with the dust.
As we try to follow the masters' advice and are slowly released from
attachment, a great compassion is released in us. The clouds of
grasping part and disperse, and the sun of our true compassionate
heart shines out.
