The more that we engage in spiritual practices of understanding, empathy, compassion, generosity and so forth … the more we attract good fortune. The more selfish we are, the more we attract misfortune. A happy mind or an unhappy mind. A good heart or a heavy heart.
In spiritual practices there is no personal gain, but we do find that our mind is calmer and insightful. We simply do whatever is necessary, and we also find that we are given space and time just to be.
A good heart = an easy path, a light path.
