Being in the forces of light means that you carry the light, and your actions must reflect its nature. So often people take the dynamic of spiritual grace and the power that comes with it to produce a kind of superiority. This is a mistake. Superiority is just a form of arrogance and will only lead to the creation of a downward flowing chain of negative karma.

The one thing that slows you down from your own awakening is your attachment to the idea of yourself as a separate identity. If you believe yourself to be a separate identity that’s what you empower—with your will, your love, your heart, your actions. If you believe you’re separate, you believe there’s something to protect. The Bodhicitta allows you to see clearly into your heart and the heart of others; it gives you the ability to see the true interconnectedness of all things and all beings.
