Spinning in the world body mind is endless

Spinning in the world body mind is endless and does not liberate you from bondage and from the sense of lack and separation.
If you read this, it is meant for you.
Do not go any further. Dive deeply into the contemplation of the Self. Abandon the senses and turn your attention to the stillness and transparency of Being.
The world body mind are what tempts you into the darkness of the cave of samsara.

Failure to reflect on impermanence will have the following negative consequences. Having been dominated exclusively by the things of this life, all we are likely to have achieved is some profit, fame, attachment, aversion, laziness, hoarded wealth, discouragement, disputes, and some short-lived Dharma practice — but nothing else. And we will not be liberated from cyclic existence very quickly that way.

If even ordinary tasks cannot be accomplished by doing them only occasionally, when one has the time, there is no need to mention accomplishing liberation and enlightenment. We have to apply ourselves with great diligence for a long period of time until we attain Buddhahood.

Think about how enlightened beings like Dipamkara and Shakyamuni were. They began as sentient beings just like us, but by the strength of their diligence, they became Buddhas. We have never given rise to diligence, and so we are still wandering in cyclic existence.

Countless Buddhas have come in the past and subsequently passed into nirvana, but we were not the objects of their healing activities and at present, on account of our actions, we continue to wander endlessly in cyclic existence.

It is important to reflect on all this and be guided on the path to liberation now, in this present life. This life is like a short-term loan, so reflect on impermanence and apply yourself sincerely to practicing the essential Dharma, for it is said in The Way of the Bodhisattva:

From this day forth, if I now fail to strive,
I’ll fall from low to even lower states.
Striving for the benefit of all that lives,
Unnumbered Buddhas have already lived and passed away.

But I, by virtue of my sins, have failed
To come within the compass of their healing works.
And this will always be my lot
If I continue to behave like this,
And I will suffer pains and bondage,
Wounds and laceration in the lower realms.
