Mind refers here to our disturbing emotions and other distracted movements of the mind, as well as to the vast, open nature of mind — the source of all positive qualities — and the capacity to distinguish the difference. As we deepen our familiarity with resting deeply in a state of spacious awareness, the obstacles and obscurations of our habitual patterns naturally dissolve into the openness of our true nature, and our positive qualities spontaneously arise from this source to benefit others.
In advance of his teaching, Rinpoche encourages creating a bit of space for meditation in your house — in a quiet, peaceful location where you can feel some sense of warmth and connection to yourself. You might provide a comfortable cushion to sit on, and a candle or stick of incense. A supportive outer space can support your inner space during meditation.
