Ra Lotsawa explains that inner attainments cause outer ones

In Chölung, when he was having a Hundred Thousand Verse Perfection of Wisdom Sutra written out, he could not find a scribe so he consecrated the right number of pages and the letters spontaneously appeared upon them. At that time a Geshe named Kunsö said to Ralo, “Whatever the precious lama wishes to do, comes about without impediment. What have you done to cause this?”

In response Ralo sang this song:

I Dorje Drakpa the minor Tibetan priest.
Whatever I’ve done has had a great result.
You are astonished and have asked me why,
To give you the answer, I will say this:

I have not gone to war, or made poison,
and yet I have subjugated external enemies without difficulty.
This is not because I am an expert in sorcery
But is a sign that internally I have subjugated the enemy that is dualism.

I have not welcomed anyone with ransom or troops
and yet I have made all genuine beings my friends
This is not because I have applied myself to the power of control
But is a sign that internally I have brought appearances under my power.

I have not practiced medicine or bön to counter negative divinations,
and yet I have expelled illness demons from the land.
This is not because I am skilled in healing rituals
But is a sign that internally I am free from the illness of the five poisons.

I have not practiced farming or business
and yet there has been a rainfall of whatever material things I need.
This is not because I have dedicated myself to creating wealth,
but is a sign that I have opened the treasury of luminosity.

Whatever possessions and wealth I have
I have used it all for offerings and charity.
I have no desire for fame
but this is a sign that I have definitely gathered the accumulations.

Even though there is a rain of arrows weapons and stones
They cannot harm the illusory body.
This is not because I am skilled in magical armor
But is a sign that I have gained the experience of the generation stage.

Even though I don’t have the requisite conditions and materials,
I fulfill wishes through emanation and transformation.
This is not through training in optical illusions,
but is a sign that I have fully accomplished the completion stage.

Geshe Kunsö on hearing this felt great faith in Ralo, became his attendant, received the empowerment and instruction and became ripened and liberated. Subsequently, he became an excellent siddha with the power to benefit about four hundred pupils.
Equanimity is the ground. Love is the moisture. Compassion is the seed. Bodhicitta is the result.

-Paraphrase of Khensur Rinpoche Lobsang Tsephel citing the Guhyasamaja Tantra

"All memories and thoughts are the union of emptiness and knowing, the Mind.
Without attachment, self-liberating, like a snake in a knot.
Through the qualities of meditating in that way,
Mental obscurations are purified and the dharmakaya is attained."

-Ra Lotsawa, All-pervading Melodious Drumbeats

I like this note of song.
it's make sense of my real life.
"I have not welcomed anyone with ransom or troops
and yet I have made all genuine beings my friends
This is not because I have applied myself to the power of control
But is a sign that internally I have brought appearances under my power."
I used sap gloves for protection.
