Confidence

lotus-born-vajraConfidence is like the fertile soil.

As the foundation of all that is,

it increases the amount of what is wholesome and healthy.

It is like a boat crossing the river of fictions.

It is like an escort protecting against spiritual death and emotional assault.

It is like a vehicle travelling to the land of freedom.

It is like the king of all jewels, making whatever one intends to come true.

It is like a hero, crushing evil.

It is the most precious hoard amongst the worthwhile accumulations.
