Rigpa Glimpse of the Day
- Bereavement can force you to look at your life directly, compelling you to
find a purpose in it where there may not have been one before. When suddenly
you find yourself alone after the death of someone you love, it can feel as
if you are being given a new life and are being asked: �What will you do
with this life? And why do you wish to continue living?�
My heartfelt advice to those in the depths of grief and despair after losing
someone they dearly loved is to pray for help and strength and grace. Pray
that you will survive and discover the richest possible meaning to the new
life you now find yourself in. Be vulnerable and receptive, be courageous
and patient. Above all, look into your life to find ways of sharing your
love more deeply with others now.

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.
