Glimpse of the day, July 1st
- In meditation, negative experiences are the most misleading, because
we tend to take them as a bad sign. But in fact the negative
experiences in our practice are blessings in disguise. Try to not
react to them with aversion as you might normally do, but recognize
them instead for what they truly are, merely experiences, illusory
The realization of the true nature of the experience liberates you
from the harm or danger of the experience itself, and as a result a
negative experience can become a source of great blessing and
accomplishment. There are innumerable stories of how masters worked
like this with negative experiences and transformed them into
catalysts for realization.

- Since everything is but an apparition,
Perfect in being what it is,
Having nothing to do with good or bad,
Acceptance or rejection
You might as well burst out laughing!
