Seeing oneself

When we check our motivation we can see what is false and discard it through simply seeing.

The seeing, itself, is the energy of Bodhicitta mind, of love and compassion.

Awareness is unconfined, universal love.

The intellect, the ego, is limited to selfishness and does not have the capacity to see itself.

From a Tulku Thubten Rinpoche teaching on Tonglen and the Bodhisattva Way of Life
