“Your faith magnetizes the blessings of Guru Rinpoche’s pure wisdom and compassion toward you. It is the opening and softening of the heart. Without faith, your heart can be closed and hard like stone. If your mind is open and devotional, you can receive the Guru’s blessings like rain falling onto the soft ground. Rain never chooses where it will fall, yet wherever it touches receptive ground, it is absorbed. However, not even one drop will penetrate stone. Everything grows from the earth but nothing grows from rock. The same is true of our mind. Qualities grow from a mind that is soft like the earth, but will never grow from a mind that is hard and impenetrable like stone. With devotion, Guru Rinpoche’s blessings will dissolve directly into your heart, like the rain into the earth. All qualities of wisdom will grow from this mixing of the Guru’s mind with your own mind.
The Guru is no other than your own pure wisdom aspect of mind which is awakened through devotion. When your wisdom mind is awakened, all phenomena is recognized as the display of your own awareness. Recalling Guru Rinpoche’s presence can open up your heart revealing your true nature and Guru Rinpoche’s as being the same. The only difference is the he has completely manifested enlightened qualities while ours are yet manifested.”
