RE: Rigpa Glimpse of the Day
- The absolute truth cannot be realized within the domain of the ordinary
mind. And the path beyond the ordinary mind, all the great wisdom traditions
have told us, is through the heart. This path of the heart is devotion.
To meditate is to make a complete break with how we �normally� operate, for
it is a state free of all cares and concerns, in which there is no
competition, no desire to possess or grasp at anything, no intense and
anxious struggle, and no hunger to achieve: an ambitionless state where
there is neither acceptance nor rejection, neither hope nor fear, a state in
which we slowly begin to release all those emotions and concepts that have
imprisoned us into the space of natural simplicity.

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.
