Thankyou

You came back
You could have kept going
The path we were taking
Seemed hard and the way unclear
You came back
Pointed the way ahead
You were way ahead
But you came back
You didnít leave us
Your strong now
It is easy for you now
We wondered of you made it
Wondered if WE can make it
Now we know
You came back
Now
We know

Just a connection that came to mind:

Quote:
Mahayana Buddhism...regards the Bodhisattva as a person who already has a considerable degree of enlightenment and seeks to use their wisdom to help other human beings to become liberated themselves. In this understanding of the word the Bodhisattva is an already wise person who uses skillful means to lead others to see the benefits of virtue and the cultivation of wisdom.

The Mahayana encourages everyone to become bodhisattvas and to take the bodhisattva vows. With these vows, one makes the promise to work for the complete enlightenment of all sentient beings.

Roger,

Yes, now you know. \:\) That's something that helped me so much when I was starting - looking ahead to guys who were doing so much better. It startled me when they noticed me struggling and and turned back to help me get up and get going myself. Why would they do that?

Then I got the message: because I was worth it.

We're all worth it, my friend, and all of us can make it.

Much love,
Larry

I am still not sure why it affected me so deeply to hear someone say:

"yes, it is possible, you can make it, See I did and I came back to tell you you can too. It is not far just follow me and keep going"

I know that is not his words but when I read his post that is what I heard. I just could not stop crying for 3 min. I was so moved. I still tear up when I think about it. God, it just meant so much to me.
