It can be so empowering for us to understand, even on a conceptual level, that we are enlightened in our true nature. We may say, ‘‘Such a wonderful state of mind seems so far beyond me, why should I even think about it?’’
The reason I like to remind people about their perfect nature is that this can encourage us. Yes, it’s true that our grasping often obscures this nature. But the good news is that we already have what is needed to be peaceful and happy. By training our minds through meditation and developing the right attitudes in life, we can bring out what is already there. We can improve ourselves and be happier and healthier in our minds.
