A song for the brave

 

In the sky of the mind, the song of truth is like a gentle breeze;

 

It is refreshing, it is sweet, it is caressing, it is good.

 

Now this basic truth of humanity has been transmitted to you

 

Cherish it like a small ember of delight in this dark world of doubt

 

When you feel scared, be gentle and don't panic

 

Wait a brief moment, touch your heart;

 

Feel vulderable and strong, then relax

 

When you find yourself at the crossroads of genuineness and deception,

 

Be brave

 

Proclaim your basic goodness, and do not forget that you are human

 

Realize that this power of goodness is your birthright

 

When you feel confident

 

You can kiss the sky

 

Smile, for this is the gift of humanity.

 

 

Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche, written for a sangha retreat in Dechen Chöling, 2011
