RE: Rigpa Glimpse of the Day
- Since pure awareness of nowness is the real buddha,
In openness and contentment I found the Lama in my heart.
When we realize this unending natural mind is the very nature of the Lama,
Then there is no need for attached, grasping, or weeping prayers or
By simply relaxing in this uncontrived, open, and natural state,
We obtain the blessing of aimless self-liberation of whatever arises.
Whatever you do, don�t shut off your pain; accept your pain and remain
vulnerable. However desperate you become, accept your pain as it is, because
it is in fact trying to hand you a priceless gift: the chance of
discovering, through spiritual practice, what lies behind sorrow.
�Grief,� Rumi wrote, �can be the garden of compassion. If you keep your
heart open through everything, your pain can become your greatest ally in
your life�s search for love and wisdom.�

If this elephant of mind is bound on all sides by the cord of mindfulness,
All fear disappears and complete happiness comes.
All enemies: all the tigers, lions, elephants, bears, serpents (of our emotions);
And all the keepers of hell; the demons and the horrors,
All of these are bound by the mastery of your mind,
And by the taming of that one mind, all are subdued,
Because from the mind are derived all fears and immeasurable sorrows.
