RE: Rigpa Glimpse of the Day
- Isn�t it extraordinary that our minds cannot stay still for longer than a
few moments without grasping after distraction? They are so restless and
preoccupied that sometimes I think that living in a city in the modern
world, we are already like the tormented beings in the intermediate state
after death, where the consciousness is said to be agonizingly restless.
We are fragmented into so many different aspects. We don�t know who we
really are, or what aspects of ourselves we should identify with or believe
in. So many contradictory voices, dictates, and feelings fight for control
over our inner lives that we find ourselves scattered everywhere, in all
directions, leaving nobody at home.
Meditation, then, is bringing the mind home.

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.
