      Although the results of our actions may not have matured yet, they will
      inevitably ripen, given the right conditions. Usually we forget what we do,
      and it is only long afterward that the results catch up with us. By then we
      are unable to connect them with their causes. �Imagine an eagle,� says Jikm�
      Lingpa.� It is flying, high in the sky. It casts no shadow. Nothing shows
      that it is there. Then suddenly it spies its prey, dives, and swoops to the
      ground. And as it drops, its menacing shadow appears.�

      ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

      The preliminary training of meditation practice and purification ripens and
      opens the student�s heart and mind to the direct understanding of the truth.

      Then, in the powerful moment of introduction, the master can direct his
      realization of the nature of mind�what we call the master�s �wisdom
      mind��into the mind of the now authentically receptive student.

      The master is doing nothing less than introducing the student to what the
      Buddha actually is, awakening the student to the living presence of
      enlightenment within. In that experience, the Buddha, the nature of mind,
      and the master�s wisdom mind are all fused into, and revealed as, one. The
      student then recognizes, in a blaze of gratitude, beyond any shadow of
      doubt, that there is not, has never been, and could not ever be any
      separation: between student and master, between the master�s wisdom mind and
      the nature of the student�s mind.

        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.
