Excerpt About Responsibility
In other words, we do need to be responsible for our realization, we need to be earnest, we need to be committed, we need to have selfless motivation, and we need to apply our capacities. However, at some point, none of that will be effective unless we recognize that it is not due to our motivation and the application of our capacities that realization or enlightenment happens. In fact, we recognize that we, as individual souls, are capacities of Living Being. We are organs of Living Being, organs for Living Being to recognize its enlightenment. The individual needs to recognize that it is Living Being that attains enlightenment and achieves realization. And Living Being attains realization by manifesting all of our life and all of our experience and all of the influences that open us up to realization. This all-accomplishing dynamism realizes its enlightenment also by appearing in our consciousness as the motivation to practice and as the capacity to practice.
