This talk details the second contemplation in the Lojong Training.View Everything as a Dream. Whatever you experience in your life—pain, pleasure, heat, cold or anything else—is like something happening in a dream. Although you might think things are very solid, they are like passing memory. You can experience this open, unfixated quality in sitting meditation; all that arises in your mind—hate love and all the rest—is not solid. Although the experience can get extremely vivid, it is just a product of your mind. Nothing solid is really happening. Excerpt from Shambhala Sun, Lojong: How to Awaken Your Heart
