Completely surrendering to truth clears away fear, doubts, and conflicting emotions.
For this is the great teaching of the Buddha:The power of truth is much stronger than the power of karma and emotionality.
To recognize this is the foundation of spiritual life. As this attitude develops, appreciation for the Buddha, Dharma, and Sangha grows naturally.
We realize that love of wisdom, reliable friendships, and good communication are all within the Dharma. They are part of study and practice, supporting the path toward liberation: good in the beginning, good at the middle, and good when the end is attained.
Trust in ourselves and trust in the Dharma are not separable; confidence in our true nature and confidence in true knowledge are one.
If we genuinely love ourselves, we love the Dharma. In this love, the power and blessings of wisdom flow forth.
