If you ever want to be a Buddha, it’s just because of your compassion. You wish that you could have some power, so you can help somehow. That is the only reason that you want to be a Buddha. Pray always for protection and help, so that your ego will not harm you in any way. So that your compassion will grow and grow and grow. So that wherever you go, your spiritual blessing and power will influence people for the better. We spiritual practitioners must have only one goal in mind: that’s to benefit others. A small way, a big way, whatever way we can. Better we don’t even know it, so our ego doesn’t make our nose become higher.
