Rigpa and States of Mind

I am observing the large bucket of water outside my door that freezes and thaws daily. It is only water but moves from solid to a liquid states due to conditions, isn't that so? Like that, an enlightened mind is also changeable, forming states of mind but again returns to an uncontaminated natural state. What is described as rigpa, acts as the invitation to the natural unsolidified state of the mind that is more alert to inner balance. Mind with a lack of obstacles is delighted to rest in that state. Eventually, mind will be capable of rest while still active. ~Domo Geshe Rinpoche
