. . . we don't need to do great, powerful, spectacular things to make a genuine difference or to become heroes. Nor do we need to be powerful beings or important leaders. We simply need to do the best we can, even if it seems impossible that we'll end up doing anything special in the long run. It is purely our motivation and great-hearted Bodhicitta in action that counts, not any attachment to a specific outcome.
