“Wisdom is knowing I am nothing,
Love is knowing I am everything,
and between the two my life moves.”
Bodhisattva is the Sanskrit term for anyone who, motivated by great compassion, has generated a spontaneous wish to attain enlightenment for the benefit of all sentient beings. A Bodhisattva sees the world from the fifth perspective.
From the fourth perspective you look at the world through the mind; from the fifth perspective, you look at the world through the heart.
In the fourth perspective you identify with no one; in the fifth perspective, you identify with everyone until you realize you are the only One.
The fourth perspective is wisdom; the fifth perspective is compassion.
From the fifth perspective, you see what is on its way towards becoming the best it could be. Your intention is to help everyone grow and be happy.
Of course, you don’t know for sure what would be the best path for this, but you trust your loving-kindness to guide you. You believe that if you relax and open your heart you will discover opportunities to make things better. Perhaps you won’t find the best resolution, but it will surely be a better resolution than the one you would have found without including this fifth perspective.
