Pacifying… I hear the boldness in Khandro-la’s voice when she says, “This is not conventional pacifying! This is awakened activity to remove obstacles!” So, I invite all obstacles into the expanse of Buddha space Dakini. I say “yes” to fear, to hope, to joy, to sorrow, to it all. Looking from the inside out, feeling into the heart of each obstacle clearly, experiencing the strength of this boundless openness, I then hear her say, “why don’t you cry into the heart of this unconditional presence? Then what happens?” With curiosity, affection, and acceptance (bliss?), I allow it all and say, “Yes!”
In whatever way the touching of my own heart deeply penetrates obstacles to awakening, I dedicate to others in the same way.
