Our Darkest Moment

If we haven’t relaxed with groundlessness during our life, death may well be terrifying. But if we’ve given birth to bodhichitta [awakened heart], death won’t cause us to retreat into self-absorption, no matter now afraid we might be. Even fear will connect us with all the others who are equally terrified and alone. Right there, in what might be our darkest moment, we will be able to connect with the tenderness of basic goodness. Dying like this is said to be a joy.
