Are You Willing To Be Enlightened?
What a ridiculous question, right?
Let's look deeper.
What? A hundred thousand prostrations? A hundred thousand mandala offerings? I'm not willing.
What? Promise to liberate all beings? I'm not willing.
What? Consider others more important than me? I'm not willing.
Need I say more?
There are always places of I'm not willing and that's understandable. But, at the same time, we need to own up that we are preventing our own enlightenment.
Once there is willingness, the path is smooth!
