‘Instead of telling us how to conduct our loves and our practice or how to control our thoughts, the Buddha tells us to give birth to a thought. The Buddha’s approach is homeopathic. He uses a thought to put an end to all thoughts. But to effect such a cure not just any thought will do. Only a thought directed towards the liberation of all beings will work. Thus, bodhisattvas turn their thoughts into offerings.’ (Commentary on the Diamond Sutra)

How would it be if your thought was always directed towards the liberation of all beings?
