THE DHARMA OF SNOW
Be patient and persevere: results on the path will come in due time, and sometimes all at once, like the sudden melting of snow.

THE PATH
 
"All conditioned things are impermanent"
When one sees this with wisdom,
One turns away from suffering.
This is the path to purification.

Impermanent, Unsatisfactory, Not-Self:  how easy it can be to let our practice of Right Mindfulness slip into the modern secular practice of mindfulness, by neglecting to keep these foundational aspects of the Buddha's path in mind. The Noble Eightfold Path starts with them as Right Understanding. The opening of our hearts to the experience of them leads to liberation --- that is how very important they are. When we are able to see the truth of them, disenchantment with becoming is not far behind. Being able to face the truth of the nature of our attachments, makes it so much easier to see and accept all things with equanimity. When seen with equanimity, the troubles of the world can be seen as the result of Sentient Beings, stuck in samsara, doing what they can to alleviate their suffering; no matter how misguided they may be.  The Buddha didn't ask us to judge samsara, but to see it with discernment; to see it as it is, impermanent, unsatisfactory and not-self.  He invited us to "Come and see" for our self what this means.  When we keep these corner stones of the Path in mind, mindfulness becomes Right Mindfulness, the guiding light to clear and radiant consciousness.  Peace and happiness are right here.
