Sudden Enlightenment 悟道偶得
Today I suddenly realized that the reason why I had not been able to have enough kindness was that I dared not be kind; and the reason why I dared not be kind was that I dared not let go of myself. Therefore I had put on a shield outside myself to protect my ego. I dared not try to experience how it would feel to be a being that completely lives for others; and therefore I couldn't become one.
In this sense, I had actually not been able to believe that selflessness is the most important quality of the new cosmos.
If the starting point of the new cosmos is selflessness, how can I enter it if I dare not and would not believe it?
I had always thought that I was a person who dared to let go of everything. After realizing the above, I knew that I wasn't one actually.
Okey, let me begin with treating all the people around me with kindness first, as stated in my "New Year Resolution".
This kind of kindness could seem "minor"; but it is related to the starting point of one's being: whether you are a selfish or selfless person. So, the old saying in China that "Do not fail to commit an act of kindness just because it is small" really does contain a lot of wisdom!
