"In so far as we really orient ourselves towards the pursuit of genuine happiness and enlightenment for the sake of all sentient beings – reality rises up to meet us – we meet just the people we need to meet, we find the book, we find the companion, we find the place, we find the sustenance, we find the environment – everything that is needed moment to moment, decade to decade – it isn’t luck - it is a pattern, it is not random, there is something going on here….
In so far as our fundamental yearning that all sentient beings find genuine happiness and be free of suffering is rooted in reality not toward these illusory phantoms of hedonic pleasures, but toward the actual freedom itself and not simply the anesthetic - our reality rises up to meet us.
When we are being real, reality corresponds.
Try the biggest experiment that a human being can perform -take this as a hypothesis, like a cloak, try it on. Then watch…. See on those occasions when your motivation is realistic when your motivation is true….see whether reality rises up to meet you….
See -I am not alone, those who have become absolutely real - they are assisting me, they are rising up to meet me. " Alan Wallace.http://web.me.com/ksnowsb108/Phuket_Spr ... _Page.html
"You are not alone because all the time there are
Numberless Buddhas and Bodhisattvas surrounding you
Everywhere loving you, guiding you,that is what they do."
-Lama Zopa Rinpoche
