As a spiritual warrior on the path of awakening, you’re going to come into contact with people from the outside world who will treat you negatively. They’ll feel threatened by you because they sense the power of liberation moving inside you and this arouses feelings of anger and jealousy within them. They’ll try to confuse you and knock you from the path.

But you’ve thought about this and prepared for it. By keeping the ideal of the Bodhicitta highest in your heart, you’ve learned to hold it there when it counts. Your heart isn’t turned in a reactionary mode when these things happen. You see to the truth of the situation and see the jealousy, envy and anger for what they are—no big deal. You don’t strike out in the name of suffering. You accept the situation for what it is, and through the burning sun of the Bodhicitta it is transmuted into light.
