It is our motivation that direct our acts, just as an irrigation channel makes water flow where it is wanted. If our acts are constantly inspired by the desire to relieve others from suffering, in the end this desire will be fulfilled. But if we ignore this a great deal and instead limit ourselves to achieving a long, comfortable and prosperous life, we may well get it – but certainly nothing more.
