By letting go of thoughts and concepts, we can bond with the clear and creative energy of our awareness. The mind’s openness is its empty nature, where we can only surrener, as there is nothing to hold on to. By trusting and letting go, we connect with the source of cognition, compassion and joy.
By letting everything be as it is, we can open ourselves to the fullness of the moment. We experience the activities of our mind as a manifestation of its luminous nature. In this wide field we feel confindence, love and trust.
Our constantly changing thoughts and feelings distract us. By connecting with the timeless consciousness, we can open our mind and relax. Then we direct our attention to focus on what is important to us.
We cannot ignore loneliness.
If we feel lonely and separated, we have forgotten that we are part of the whole.
If we embrace loneliness with loving awareness, we can overcome the pain of feeling separated.
Then we both feel connected to others and can enjoy our own company.

When the dragon is discovered by the villagers, they send for St George to rid them of it. The girl introduces St George to the dragon. They decide that St George harmlessly spears the dragon.
