Be grateful to everyone,
everybody is creating a space
for you to be transformed -
even those who think they are obstructing you,
even those whom you think are enemies.
Your friends, your enemies,
good people and bad people,
favorable circumstances, unfavorable circumstances -
all together they are creating the context
in which you can be transformed
and become a buddha.
Be grateful to all.
To those who have helped,
to those who have hindered,
to those who have been indifferent.
Be grateful to all,
because all together
they are creating the context in which buddhas are born,
in which you can become a buddha.
