The water needs to be heated to become vapor and then it moves up. So also those who have committed themselves in the path to unravel the mystery of life and death and reach to worry free, fearless, blissful ground of mind must be ready to be burned in the fire of troubles and tribulations. Don’t want to burned? Don’t walk this path. But not until karma is burned can you have a distilled mind to see the grace that surrounds you and is leading you toward nirvana!
Love and Peace!
