RE: Rigpa Glimpse of the Day
- One of the chief reasons we have so much anguish and difficulty in facing
death is that we ignore the truth of impermanence.
In our minds, changes always equal loss and suffering. And if they come, we
try to anesthetize ourselves as far as possible. We assume, stubbornly and
unquestioningly, that permanence provides security and impermanence does
not. But in fact impermanence is like some of the people we meet in
life�difficult and disturbing at first, but on deeper acquaintance far
friendlier and less unnerving than we could have imagined.

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.
